: I know this has been covered before, but I want to do it right the first time! I'm impressed with the realist's claims, but what about its durability over the years? I have SVT 100 & 350 combos for amps now, a thin 3/4 Czech thats about 250 years old & a 1936 Alfred Meyer fully carved 3/4 & another German carved top about the same age. I've play locally in swing & Big band for 30 years with my Fender's but have been playing a lot of acoustic gigs lately, and would like to include doghouse to my louder gigs. I've used the Barcus years ago without a preamp so it wasn't acceptable. I need to play loud enough to stay with over enthusiastic horn sections. Also now I use Orchestra Spiro-cores and the "E" does'nt have the acoustic volume of the other strings on all my basses. All advice much appreciated. Booger

I've tried numerous pickups and combinations of pickups but found the K&K Double Big Twin to be the best of them all for the music I play (Jazz, Rock-a-billy and Blues). I run it through a Fishman B-II preamp into a Fender Bassman with 2 12" Jensen speakers and it very good. Contact Bob Gollihur for details. He's great to work with.
