    I have a late 80's P-bass that I purchased offline about year ago. I noticed when i first used it with my Amp that sometimes when I would hit the open E, it would clip my amp. I thought it had something to do with my pups so I tried different levels. I then used it with my samson wireless and now it clipped both my amp and my wireless. Since i already wanted to upgrade, I purchased EMG p's. Installed and adjusted a few things here and there and I am still noticing some clipping. Any ideas?

    Note: Only Clips on Open E

    What kind of amp and what settings? Maybe that's the problem.
