: Reece,

: I have an Epiphone EL CAPITAN 5-String acoustic/electric bass. Whenever our

: drummer doesn't show up for practice, the two guitarists and I occasionally

: do an acoustic thing. I usually plug mine in because normally I don't pull on

: the strings very hard when I play, thus the guitars always drown me out if

: they're strumming, but not if they're picking. If you really yank those babies,

: you'll be heard, but it's hard to play fast changes pulling on the strings

: so hard....hope that helps.


If you want to be heard, see if you can find one of the super large bodied acoustic basses almost like a guitaron. An Earthtone for example or a Grote (made somewhere in Northern Ca.)

If you have any luck, tell me. I would very much like to purchase one myself.
