: Has anyone had any experience with Biesele pick ups?
Although I myself have never used a magnetic pickup on an upright , one of the bass players here does and going by his sound you might as well be playing bass guitar ! You lose all of the acoustic qualities of the bass and if you have a high string action the signal is so weak that you have to turn your amp up really loud to compensate so you get feedback that way !
In the end the choice is yours but if you want to play a 6 feet high bass guitar go ahead ! - that's the sound you'll get .
