Upright bass with relay coil pick up

Here´s a little sound sample. The signal from the pick up is a little bit weak and the volume is turned all the way up on the amp. My wife is playing.

Really nice. Has that proper growl. Props to your lady for such a nice job of playing it. Her intonation and vibrato is excellent!
