: Anyone have comments on the barcus berry bass pickup? It seems interesting. I have tried quite a few p-ups and still am working it out- I have tried the KK stuff and I like it. Is the BB preamp necessary-or could I use another one?
: thanks!

Ya. I cant stand it. It was really uneven. The E was 5 times louder than the G and it had a Fishman on a bad day tone (even with the cracker jack preamp). I would not recommend it. You might try the Realist or a mic or both or well you know the story. Good luck, Michael
PS The preamp is mandatory due to the plugin jack on the pickup being not 1/4 inch or anything I have ever seen (kinda RCA like) which was yet another thing I didn't like about it. Boo.
