I’ve converted– David Gage Realist to Fishman Full Circle Double Bass pickup

For pizz at least. It sounded awesome on my first gig last night.

Clearer, louder, tighter more defined lows, wow!

I should’ve tried it years ago. A student who has heard me lots came by my gig in a horrible sounding room and said it was the best tone he’d heard from me– he was kind of freaking out, saying it sounded like Gary Peacock or something.

I’m keeping the realist for theater gigs where I need a good bow sound, though– the Fishman is a bit scratchy arco. Having both pickups should really give me some options.

Thanks to the TB crowd who provided me some data on switching, particularly whoever put up the post A/Bing the two pickups.
