Volume differences

  1. Hello,
    my problem is that my basses volume differs from string to string.
    There is not much difference between the E and A-strings, but
    there are som bigger differences between those to and the D- and G-strings. Some buddies of mine told me that they have exactly the same problem... Its hard to notice while playing alone, but its easy to hear when for example playing an E on the A- and playing an E on the D-string. Its absolutely different. The volum differs a lot. My question is that, could it be helped by changing the pickups or something? :help:

    might try spinning the pickup(s) 180 degrees to see if vol. changes on the other 2 strings. Or, try new strings.

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    You could also try putting a compressor between your bass and your amp.
