    Hi Everyone,

    Not that great with pickups and such so I thought I would ask. The question is, when I'm in rehearsal, I can hear my E string very well but the others are barley audible. Why is this? I have stock ESP pickups on my bass. Do I need to just get better pickups? Which are best. is it my amp (Fender rumble 350)? Or something else? Please help!!!

  2. Maybe you need to raise the pickup some so that the magnets are closer to the strings?

    Thanks for the response. How would I do that?
  4. The pickup should have screws. Just loosen the side that needs to be raised. Let me know if that helps.

    96tbird PLEASE STAND BY

    Have heard from a few luthiers on tb that EMG should be very close to the strings as is possible. From there it just takes side to side balancing of output.
