I'm a bassist. I play a Warwick Corvette std 5 string with MEC pickups. I use D'addario strings.
Ok now my problem, I play in a band and we play progressive thrash metal (kinda like Metallica meets Led Zepplin) and I have serious trouble keeping the low end in the sound. When playing the 4th and 5th strings, it sounds fine, lots of low end, but as I progress to the higher strings, the bass just drops off completely.
I have my action set pretty low to get a nice click off the fretboard with every strike of my fingers, and the treble on my Behringer Bass V-Amp is set alll the way down. Not so much mid and about three quarters bass.
One solution I thought might work was to "tilt" my pickups so that they are closer to the higher strings, this solved another problem with amplitdue, but not with amount of low end..
Is there a way I can make the amount of low end more uniform across the strings, so that the low end doesn't suddenly drop off when I'm playing the 4th fret on the a string?
