First check your pickup heights. You might need to lower the pickup on the E and raise them under the A, D, and G strings. Solo each pickup and check this first. A lot fender basses have dead spots around the 7th fret of the G string, resonance issues cause this. How about your strings? How old are they? Cut back the bass on your amp and adjust the mids, turn up amp to compensate? Try all of these things individually and see if any of them help. Good Luck.

: Hello, I'm a good bassist but a horrible tech and needed some help. I play a fender hot rodded p-bass through an Ampeg SVT3 and Ampeg 4X10. My problem is this. I get a nice LOUD rumble on the E string up to the 5th fret. When I play in the mid range (between 5th - 12th frets on A and D strings), I seem to lose a lot of 'boost'. The notes are very weak. They are even weaker on the G string. Do you know how I can help this? I've tried the EQ on the SVT3, no luck. I also used a Boss Compressor that I thought may help. Nope. Now, I'm thinking of the Fulltone Fat Boost to help with the mids. But would love somethoughts from you pros........
