Acoustic Basses / Distorting AB-10
« on: March 22, 2011, 07:56:35 PM »
I have an AB-10 that is physically awesome - perfect neck and the best intonation of any of my many basses. The electronics are just not cutting it. The pickup throws a spike thorough the system unless it's played VERY gently. Additionally, the preamp itself (Equis Silver) kicks out wolloping power. Any volume setting above 10:00 overloads any amp input I've put it through. I can live with the hot preamp, but the spiky distortion I get from playing at any normal plucking strength is a deal-breaker. Anyone on this list dealt with this before? I hate not to use such a great-playing bass!
