    I've got a Warwick FNA and I cannot get the sound I'm looking for out of it. The low end always seems to have this farty popping sound, almost like there's no bass and way to much mid on. No matter how much I fiddle about with it I cannot get the a smooth rich deep tone out of it. Am I being bone here? Could it be a PUP/Set up issue? Maybe the thing needs and over all? Please help its driving me mad.

    About impossible to understand what you're describing without a recording.

    Could be a multitude of things ranging from bass to effects to amp settings.

    What's the "other half" of your gear, (amp/cab)?
  4. Fill out your profile and we can help you easier...
    but I'm gonna go with set your EQ flat on your bass and amp, select your neck pickup dial down the tone knob and then bump up the low mids on your amp...

    Maybe obvious, but if it's active make sure you have a battery that's full of juice.

    Also again with an active bass there may be some pre-amp pots you can adjust to reduce the gain on the bass side of things.
