: I have just switched to upright as my main instrument and I just got back from rehearsal tonight. I was pretty dissappionted with the tone of my upright through and underwood pickup and into my Ampeg bass amp.
: I need to improve the situation dramatically. Anyone have any opinions on the realist pickup? and/or amp suggestions.
: I use the Realist in combination with an Underwood, through an Acoustic Image contra amp. The two pickups balance each other out sonically, and it sounds great. Very natural.
: Eventually I want to consentrate on bebop Jazz, however, I am playing anything and everything right now in my current band.... ie rock, pop alternative etc.
: My main problem is keeping up with a very loud rock drummer without feedback. I also want to improve the amplified tone of the bass.
: Any suggestions will be very welcome. BTW I have a Musima hybrid bass.
