    Hi Lynn, How did you get that gorgeous sound on your Eminence bass on the recording of You Don't Know What Love Is with Evilena Protektore? Thanks, John

    John,
    Thank you for the kind words about the tone of the Eminence. I ran the Gage pickup that comes with the bass through a borrowed preamp (which you can see on a road case to my right about 27 seconds in). The engineer also put a microphone on the bass just to get a little "air" (which you can see stuffed into the bridge). By itself the mic sounded awful, but with a little bit blended in with the preamp, it added a lot. I currently use an Acoustic Image preamp and am very happy with that. Here is a fan video where I am using the AI preamp through a PA. It is a good representation of what it really sounds like in the room. There is a bowed solo later in the video.
    All the best.
