I went back to an old favorite bass I found in a pawn shop last week. It's a 1991 Peavey Foundation. I had one almost 15 years ago, love the slim neck and the sound, but I sold it for an instrument that turned out not to measure up soundwise. Anyhow, The soloed neck pup is warm, round and bouncy/punchy, and the soloed bridge is warm, growly and cuts with punch, esp when played over the bridge. The etronics are passive V/V/T, and the tone knob's effect is very subtle. My only gripe (and it ain't a big gripe, as I love the first two tones and can get pretty much what I want with the bass as it is) is that the any blending of the two pups results in an unpleasant scooped out tone with few mids, or a twangy sound with greatly reduced volume. There are only one or two spots in the entire blend range that sound good. Having read the review here on the Super Ferrite pups, I see that this might be par for the course, but I'm looking for suggestions that would give me a smoother and more useful range of blended tones. Any suggestions about tone caps, pots, wiring? Failing that, are there any aftermarket pups that will fit the Foundation bezels? The routs are deeeeeep, BTW. Note: When I had my first Foundation, I wasn't anywhere near as aware of how and when to use various tones, but I don't remember hearing this blend issue.
