nothing to gain

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by Davidoc, Aug 21, 2001.


  1. I have a yamaha rbx260 with a bartolini 8s pickup. My gain is very low. Is there a way to increase your bass's gain without raising pickups? My pickups sound bad when their anything but really low.

    Would getting an emg btc control help?

    I kinda doubt the BTC would do it, but you could run into an external EQ pedal set "flat" or a Sansamp; either of which give you an extra gain stage before your amp.

    Or some sort of outboard preamp - lke the Sadowsky, Aguilar or Fodera ones.
