    PLEASE DO NOT TYPE IN ALL CAPS, IT IS CONSIDERING YELLING.

    You will get more posts.....And i dont think a pedal is what you need. try lowering the higher strings closer to the pick up, use some mid highs, eq it so it doesnt sound that way, take it to a pro to have it setup. I doubt you need a pedal.

    Posting in the right forum might be a good option to. Ok, first pedal you want is the one that TURNS OFF THE CAPS LOCK! Second, you want to try the effects forum over in the Bass Guitar side of Talkbass. Third, you would want to try the suggestions PollyBass made.
     
  4. I don't think the moderators approve of double-posting, and most, if not all, of the members here don't appreciate posts in all caps.

    Kindly consider your board etiquette, because it's especially important on this board. :cool:

    i agree.
    lay off the caps lock.

    oh yeah and try adjusting your EQ with more high end (change the treble on the bass itself or the pedal or the preamp or even the amp itself if it has an EQ) of course you could also lower the G string... but too much lowering could give you some fretbuzz... probably not a problem...

    although that has basically alreayd been said...
    therefore my reply served no purpose...
    therefore i guess i will just shut up now...
     
  6. YOUR G STRING IS OLD, CHANGE ALL OF YOUR STRINGS
     
  7. you already posted this...
    no effect will make you G string sound louder...
