    I've got a bass with Kent Armstrong soapbars. Sounds fantastic. Just one issue. It seems like when I'm on a gig I can't hear the higher notes cut through the mix. I cranked up the mids last night and it seemed to get better. Is this somthing anyone else has experienced? Do Kent Armstrong pickups have a scooped sound or could it be the bass? I usually play a bass with a P pickup. P's are never lacking in mids so this is new to me.
