Ok, I am in my 1st year of URB. I get a nice pizz sound live, but when I try to record, the bass sounds too electric and mid rangy. I also hear a lot of finger thump type noise. It seems I have to eq the mids away like crazy to try and conteract this bogusness of sound. I have tried a Schectner pickup and now I am using a K&K Golden Trinity. My bass is a new carved Chineese. I am using Spirocore wiech strings now. My thoughts are that this bass is new and therfore bright sounding itself. So are the Spirocores. Should I try a darker string on this bass? How about Thomastik Superflexables?
