Hi guys, I play a Sadowsky Metro Will Lee model Rv5. I hope I'll explain my problem properly - essentially, when you want to fret a note, you want to press your finger down, and then pluck immediately, of course, but I don't get the proper pluck sound, because, at the moment, no matter how softly I put my finger down, I get the sound of the fretted note. I do not get this problem with other basses. There's also a little bit of clack as well. This occurs mostly on the E and B strings. This is not a problem if I can mute the strings with my other fingers on my left hand. I've tried turning off the tweeter on my speakerand turning the treble down on the EQ but that didn't do as much as I'd hoped. Straightening out the neck did help bit, but not enough to fix the problem altogether. I've asked bass playing friends about this but I mostly get "this is precisely why I don't use active pickups" as a response. I have a feeling that it could be a pickup height issue, that lowering the pickups would help, except I put them at the heights Sadowsky recommended for the bass. I certainly don't want to have to adjust that, as I want to have the pickups closer so my touch can be lighter. This is, quite frankly, a curse - I love the sound my active pickups give, but they're so damned noisy. I want that Tal Wilkenfeld sound - modern, lots of expression, but warm. And I want to achieve it with a soft touch, which she seems to be able to do. So do I have to compromise? Or am I missing something? Forgive me if it seems that I'm being a bit neurotic, this is just doing my head in. I think that covers everything - I'll respond to answers in seven hours or so, as I'm about to slumber. I thank you for your answers in advance.
