I am currently not using any kinds of effects on my bass whatsoever. But when we are recording to my friends computer there was a **** load of pick sound in the recording and the bass was Super Bright. :scowl: I have an Ibanez SR400 and i have tried tweaking it to not be able to pick it up but it isn't helping that much. Do I need to find a pedal that will mellow it out. Or maybe even ndifferent type of picks?(Just using chepo plastics right now.) And i know i know use my fingers but I severed my spinal cord ten years ago and have had to adapt to playing with a pick because of nerve damage. Any help would be appreciated.
