Ok, so I have this problem. A while ago, I bought a K&K Bass Max pickup for my plywood bass. Well, I just got a new Sam Shen hand carved, and I put it on it, and it seems to have lost alot of its bottem end/growl/volume. I was wondering, would an EQ help? Should I get the Golden Trinity mic set? Should I try the realist? Im looking for a very growly jazz sound. Something on the lines of Christian McBride. Hum... I know youve probablem seen a thousand posts like this. sorry... let me know.
