Charles, I gotta ask a few things.
1. How long have you been playing upright?
2. Is the sound there when you play unamplified?
3. How high is your action?
If you haven't been playing that long, or switched from electric to upright, I would futz a little bit with yer amp settings, as they are going to change from the way you would set them with electric. Start with everything flat and work from there. If you don't hear the sound when you play unamplified, then I doubt it is a problem with soundpost or bridge. You sure your not hitting the fingerboard with your pizz hand when you pluck the note? The only other thing I can think of is fingerboard hand, again depending on experience level, hand strength etc. are you fingering correctly?
