Hi Mike, I have read somewhere that you use the EBS Bass IQ. I just got mine and do not have much experience with it. I thought maybe you could help me out since you surely know more about it. Whenever I attack the strings a little harder in the "up" or the "hi-Q" mode it sounds like the filter can not handle the signal anymore and distortes the sound. This happens especially easily when I switch to the bridge pickup. If I attack any softer the wah effect is not audible any more. Do you think my BassIQ is damaged?
