Got a Cort Curbow

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by S. Byrnes, Dec 28, 2003.


  1. Here's my new bass. I like it a lot but I get some distortion when the instrument volume is not all the way up or the slap switch is engaged. I replaced the battery but had no luck. Its the model with the Bartolini MK1 pick up and MK2 preamp. Any ideas?

  2. nice!!!! i love the burl finish, i was considering buying one in a six
     
  3. yeah its pretty nice, and I figured out the distortion was the preamp gain turned up too high. Its Luthite though so its not a real Burl but it looks good.

    Like he said, turn down the gain. I have the same 4, but fretless and a 5 fretted curbow. I Realy like the look. I think they both play great. They are pretty light and fast. I play with a pick most of the time, so I'm sure its different. Good luck. They are meant to be played very hard. Later Joe
