Is it really so hard? is it Really.... so hard to take the sound that you make acoustically and amplify it?! All I want to do is make the sound my bass produces louder How can it be that hard?! I play acoustically and I've developed a decent sound, not a great sound but something I can be happy with. I have a markbass cmd121p which sounds Amazing with my lakland 5594 but when I plug in my acoustic and try to get anything louder than a little Push it sounds like crap... Ive worked with it for Hours on end which eventually turns into days and only leads to frustration it sounds hollow, and has too much midrange. Im using a realist and I have a "schroeder" upright with a carved deck with some old velvet garbo strings. Any suggestions as to what I could be doing wrong? What can I do right.. I dont' want to spend a million dollars but I need something to make it sound "decent"!
