Sounds to me like you have a fret problem in that area. sometimes frets will pull up from the fretboard due to heat or from shipping. Take it to a local music store that has a good repair man. It's a simple fix and cheap to repair.

Bass Guitar Won't Register

The mics I have seen don't have a filter... but a lot of mixers do have a 100Hz mic input filter. Check the other equipment that you are using also.

I ordered two used sm58's and 2 used sm57's ... one of the sm57's works perfectly but all were said to work perfectly. Is there any way that something could have messed them up in the shipping process?...

It's highly unlikely that something failed in shipping. Those mics are built like tanks. They were probably messed up before you bought them or are counterfeits.

Factory specs for Fender Stratocaster and Squire

The nut and the bridge are the pieces that effect the radius of a guitar, regardless of make/model.

The radius is the arc the frets and fretboard follow from side to side. Matching this arc with your string saddles greatly increases playability and comfort when playing the guitar. The nut follows this arc also, though not as intensely as the saddles. An improperly set bridge not only is hard to play on, but causes undue stress on the player!!

Fender does not provide the specifics; it's pretty much up to the player to set to their preference. I'd check out a music store to see what a new out-of-the-box Strat is set up like, just for reference.

I bought a pick up for my violin. But when I plug it in and play. I get a rubbing sound coming through the speakers, like the pick up is picking up the bow strokes rather than just the notes... Its sounds...

Yes, and it will pickup "handling noise" as well.

A hint I can offer is to try a mute. One of the bent wire ones with weights that clips over the strings in back of the bridge..

I have found a perfect match for my wife's violin. We use an Autolycus pickup and an X2 wireless link. NOTE: the piezo pickups require a VERY high impedance input amplifier. You MUST use a very short cord or all the highs get wiped out.

We got the Autolycus from the source in New Zeeland (about $70). The fellow has a website with a sound clip. Search Google for Autolycus violin and you should find it. Do listen to the sound clip. The little piezo clips on the top where the sound post is with a plastic clip that reaches through the treble side F hole.

I had to make my own cable for the X2 wireless as it has a TRS 1/8 connector and the signal is on the ring and the tip and sleeve are ground. The Autolycus comes with an RCA jack on a pigtail. The X2 has a very high impedance input at the transmitter which is ideal for the Autolycus pickup. We use a Berhinger ACX1000 acoustic amp. It actually sounds like a violin.

Use good quality strings is important. The X2 system is a digital transmission at near CD quality.

Fuzzy sound when instrument being played

The 1/4" output on your bass needs to be resoldered in 1 or more places. It's very common.

The back of my Fender Stratocaster, where you put the strings in, is too far off from the back slot to put the strings in or out and the whammy bar won't screw in all the way

I'm guessing that in addition to your explanation, the guitar does not have currently have strings on it and you want to replace them. If so, this will fix your problem and is generally the best way to restring a floating bridge strat:

1) Remove the metal plate from the back of the strat. Inside you'll see the springs and the back of the bridge. Get yourself a thick piece of paper (or an ace of spades card like I do ;) and hold the guitar on your lap like you're going to play.

2) Gently push the back of the bridge up a bit and slide the paper/card in between the body and the back of the bridge on the front of the guitar. This will give you the room to get the strings through and slide the tremelo bar in correctly.

3) Restring the guitar starting with the low E, bringing it into pitch and then repeating in order with the other 5 strings. The card will fall out as the strings begin to put tension on the bridge. Replace the back plate and rock out vigorously.

Loss of bass frequencies in dynamic mics

That's one correct assumption, but it's actually the element that gets damages causing the coil to rub. Open the top up and see if there is any damage, sung a magnifying glass as the tiniest crack could go un-noticed by the naked eye.

In testing these 2 did you change the frequency at all? trying with a different receiver, having another mic on the "bad" mics frequency?

Loss of lows can also be a sign of a bad wire as this sometimes tend to act as a high pass filter.

Did you do the obvious, change batteries?
