: I am looking to purchase a Bass Pickup, I would like to know if anyone has tried one of the following models: SCHATTER UB-03, UNDERWOOD, FISHMAN BP100, KURMAN, AND SCHERTER.


My recent experience (with Underwood and Fishman) is that on my current bass, the Underwood gives me the warmest sound. The Fishman seems to amplify more of the highs and finger noise. I didn't have that experience on my previous bass(laminated,) but I sure have it with my current carved instrument. I play through the Fishman pre-amp box (I've forgotten its name/model number) to the amp. I consider this piezo-tempering circuit absolutely necessary to achieve an acceptable sound.
