never satisfied..... lately i have really been able to dial in a good db sound using a rev solo pickup into a contra, why cant i just leave it alone? now i decided to get the h clamp and mic my bass with a sm 57. the h clamp thing is great, i was having trouble with a boom stand and the sm57, never could get it in the sweet spot, the h clamp solved that problem, i got a really nice natural sound running it into my contra with a xlr to 1/4 inch adapter. so what do i do for the gig last night? run the mike straight into a berhinger pa. it was to boomy and undefined, i guess thats what the hp filter is for on the contra, which i left at the house because i figured i could just run straight into the pa. now i want a series III coda so i can run my mic into one chanel and my pickup into the other. does it ever end? i have also noticed that i change my strings about 3 times a week, from obligatos to ub blacks, to spirocores. the crazy thing is i have not been dissatisfied with the different strings or my amped sound (at least lately) yet i continue to tweak and obsess about getting it better. anyone else doing things like this or am i loosing my mind?
