    I have K&K Bass Max pickup on my bass. I know. "Bass Max".
    I noticed, that higher registers (above C on G string) are much quieter than lower registers on pickup signal, but acoustically they are on the similar level.
    Any tips how to give a "punch" to upper registers? I usually play in lower registers but on gigs I sometimes do melodies on upper register and these are noticeably lower in volume.
  2. I'm afraid it's a pickup limitation.
    I'm pretty satisfied with the Hurley single shot wing pickup and it's half the price of the Bass Max.
    Balance across strings seems very good to me.
    (and I had Bass Max pickups in the recent past)
