Lately I've really been working on my pizz, trying to a bigger unamplified sound out of the bass, without major finger damage. I am playing with Obligatos, mainly pizz, but arco at school. I've tried a few variations, doubling up my fingers, etc. Any more secrets or ideas on technique? A professional setup perhaps (this is my first carved bass, but I haven't made the trek to Tulsa for a proper setup yet)? I've done a search on volume, and read the newbie links, I'm just looking for more opinions, or material to read.
