Howdy I was just looking for some advice. Currently, I'm using this bass http://shop1.mailordercentral.com/lemurmusic/prodinfo.asp?number=BA109 with a Full Circle pickup. My amp is a Line 6 Studio 110. My problem is that no matter how much tinkering I do with this setup my bass just sounds like bass noise as opposed to a double bass. I saw someone on this forum use the word "tubby" and I think that applies. I thought this was something I'd be forced to live with until I listened to Brian Bromberg's album Wood in which you can hear every rattle and such and the notes are defined. Any advice on how I can get a more natural tone? Is it simply the bass I'm using? Also, I saw people mention the facing of my Full Circle matters. Right now my threads are facing up. Thanks mucho!
