Realistic and K&K Double Big Twin

Discussion in 'Amps, Mics & Pickups [DB]' started by ejuzek, Apr 20, 2003.


  1. Cheers !!!!

    Does anyone had any experience blending a Realistic and a Double Big Twin ???

    I used to have problems with the K&K DBT on low volume (situations) it handle it superb ! but on very loud (lousy drummers, etc.) it gave me a lot of feedback...

    And I changed it for a realistic but on Load Volumes... no highs at all... So that´s why I´m thinking about getting a K&K blender....

    Any Comments....

    The Double Big Twin is a very feedback prone pickup, probably because it's very heavy on the highs in a "Fishmanlike" kind of way. This might well make it a good companion to the Realist, which is dark as a moonless night. Personally, I prefer the Bass Max over both, BUT....if you were to buy a two channel blender, you could use mostly Realist and blend in a little high end from the DBT and probably brighten your sound a bit and avoid some feedback that way. Plus, even if you still didn't care for the sound, you'd still have a two channel blender, which might come in handy later. Best of luck.

    Chris, I've you've got a DBT handy, try it with the Fishman blender. My paradigms are shifting....

    You lost me. I no longer have the DBT - I chopped it up and fashioned it into a second Bass Max. What results do you get with the Fishman, and what the hell is going on with your paradigms?

    I tried my Bass Master Pro with the Fishman blender and it sounds fantastic! The DBT half of it gets so much low end now, where it didn't get that much before. I'll have to do a gig with it (friday, I guess), but I think I've found my combination. Very sweet.
