: I really dislike the sound of the Contra and can't hear what a lot of players seem to hear in it. It is a very muddy, non-cutting cabinet, in my opinion.
The Contra really brings out the full range of the bass, but with a pickup like the Realist, which exaggerates the bottom end, it could in fact be muddy and non-cutting. The Realist sounds better with brighter amps normally asociated with electric bass such as GK, Hartke (what John Adams at North Texas uses with his Realist), SWR, etc.
