Hi. Due to a severe lack of cash, I'm playing a budget passive Peavey Dynabass International Series...i think.. (it just says International Series on the headstock, but i think it's a dynabass...but the body shape is very similar to the cirrus) Anyway, it's a nice bass and all but it's so damn quiet...i have to put the amp volume really freakin high to get heard. My question is, on a budget, could this be changed? i can't afford a new bass yet (damn college) so I was thinkin along the lines of pot replacement or something ...? Or is it just a lost cause? Any help or education on the matter is appreciated, C.
