Hi Rob. I have the answer to your problem! I put on US bluegrass bands in Nottingham UK and supply a twin pickup unit with great oooomph! It's extremely true and very loud. Many of my customers were previously Fishman users.

Have a look at my web page below for customer reaction, etc.

Best' Geoff. http://homepage.ntlworld.com/geoff.bowers/bass.htm

: I've been using The Fishman Pickup (glued to the bridge) with the Fishman preamp for jazz and been satisfied with the tone. In the last few few years, I've been getting other types of gigs (Rockabilly, Swing, etc), where I need to generate more volume and presence than the Fishman can deliver. Can you recommend a pickup for this kind of situation? If you use a magnetic pickup, how is the tone? Can you bow with it?

: Thanks,
