Hi there. When I play my Cirrus (and my other basses too) I have a substantial difference in the output signal. I record most of my jam sessions at home and gets pretty obvious when I check the levels in the digital file. I`m not a "hard" slapper, and try to accomodate the technique to make the volume even to fingerstyle, but it`s hard to achieve. I suppose I have the same problem during my gigs. I wonder if a decent compressor is the solution I`d like to hear some advice.
