I picked up a bass guitar originally owned by Mike Watt - custom built for Mike in 2001. Even has his name on there! Anyway, the bass is way goofy with the two passive pickups -A Lane Poor P-Bass pickup (neck position) and a Kent Armstrong Music Man Style pickup in the bridge position (Mike Watt swapped pickups when he owned this bass). There are two flip-style switches on this bass: you mute either pickup and use just one of them or you can combine them. The issue with this setup - it's all passive, LP pickup is really quiet and the Kent Armstrong is crazy strong in the signal level. It's a pain in the butt to switch pickups live with such a huge volume change. The combined volume of the two pickups is just slightly louder than the LP pickup by itself. I want to increase my signal level and get the pickups to the same output level or at least closer. Soloed or combined, I need to have the levels really close to one another. Is that possible? Thinking of adding a Glockenklang pre-amp, but what else should I do to achieve my setup ideas? I am not a big fan of passive tone knobs, and extra EQ knobs (besides a bass knob) are not helpful to me. I am trying to NOT piss off the sound guy! http://www.hootpage.com/hoot_gallery-thudstaffs.html 2001 Thelacaster 4 string, Check it out!
