Hi, I just put on the pick-up cover (bell cover) back on my old -55 P-bass. I was wondering if it has any impression on the sound? I did it mainly to protect the single coil mike that's pretty "naked" and sensitive dynamically, but the cover is tight on the strings and I think the output got a little more punchy. Anyone with experience in this matter? I know some players like Will Lee and Marcus Miller keeps it on their J-type basses but is it mainly as a resting place for the right hand or do they know something I don't?
