Hi all, I'm just looking for a little advice on how to get a brighter sound out of my bass. I play a custom made 5 string bass made of Zebrawood. I have installed some bartolini 72M45C (deep Tone) pickups into it (I replaced EMGs b/c I wanted more colour in my tone), and also have the Bartolini NTMB preamp in it. I LOVE the tonal characterists of my bass now that I did that. I do not want to change that. I do however want to get a brighter and less warm attack out of it when necessary and cleaner sound. I know that using brighter stainless steele strings will help with brightening my tone. I just want to know of any other suggestions anybody may have. Any suggestions??
