FDP Forum / Guild/DeArmond/Tacoma Guitars / DeArmond M-75 Goldtones--too much bass

I've adjusted the pole, but still find the bass on the low E string to be too much. Other than turning back the bass on the amp, what else can I try?

Tilt the pickup. You may have already done that when you say "adjusted the pole" but if you haven't, go ahead.

And of course there's no law against adjusting the amp, but it can be a bit awkward if you swap gutiars a lot. If so, try hitting the low E string a little less, or with a lighter or palm-muted touch.

Or try a different set of strings. Part of what I like about the Fender Traditional Light set on many guitars is that .038 low E string on a set of "tens", but then I like to playing single string stuff on the lower three strings, so having them lighter is part of that too.

Just yesterday I was playing my DeArmond M72 with Goldtones into my BDV and was really digging the lower strings on it, but the amp is set up fairly bright and I may well have a .038 lower E.

I literally lowered the pole itself; I'll try lowering the bass side of the PUP.

The bass is 'boomy' no matter what strings I try. Maybe that's just the nature of the GoldTones?
