I've played thru a Shaker Madcat before and my ears heard the same
lack of bass response.  I also own 2 Honkers and I am COMPLETELY happy
with them. Good tonal response thru all ranges.(bass,mid, treb)  Also
being able to play truly acoustic style while amped up ,  really opens
up your playing.  They are the best mics I have owned or played thru.
If you'd like, I'll try to get an audio or video clip together so you
can have a listen for yourself.
P.S.   - usual disclaimer of no affiliation with Honker, just a
satisfied customer.
