I just received my new 55-01 from Bass Central a week and a half ago . I used it at a gig Sunday night for the first time . My amp is a Carvin RC210 , 210 combo . My other bass I've used for several years is a Warmoth Gecko with passive Schaller soap bar pickups with an EMG BTC tone circuit . Problem is , When I play the low B , it sounds like the speakers are going to die !! Like the signal is too hot . I fixed the problem by turning way down , but to a point where I could not hear myself . With the Warmoth I could hit the B as hard as I wanted , no problems . I just downsized my rig and I don't want to add more stuff . HELP !!!!
