Volume on G string question

    Played out last night for the first time using a new rig. Lakland 55-01 through Brian Barrett's True Voice tube preamp into Crown CE-1000 and Schroeder 1212.

    The bottom end is solid, and as loud as I want it to be. When I play on the G string it seems the volume is lower and the sound doesn't cut through the mix. I think it has something to do with the Lakland, as my Ergo 5 string upright has consistent volume and sound.

    Any thoughts?

    Raise the pickups on the treble side?

    I think this is going to be a setup issue, so I'm moving it...
