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.
