JoeOnBass So this one, I tried using a neck through Schecter with 2 huge 4-pole Humbuckers. It's got an 18volt pre-amp in it and on stage, it's a beast. In the little home studio, it's Godzilla walking through a village, my speakers were farting out. I think it's audible on the recording. I'll have to go back to the MusicMan for recording, but what a growl!! :o +0

JoeOnBass I have a Hotone B-Station pre-amp and if you wind the bass all the way off and crack the mids and treble with no compression - boom, this is what it gives you. I watched a bunch of YouTube videos for it and really only got three sounds out of it, but this one is great for Iron Maiden/Anthrax/Fates Warning type riffs. Which is good, that's the kind of metal I like. :-) +0

Ernie440 That's cool, nice to find something that works for you!! You know it! Oh yeah .. it's definitely a metal tone you're getting out of it. When I attempt to play metal ... still stuck with that 70's outdated sound which is OK but I do tire so ... LOL Nice one Joe!! Never heard of that pre amp actually but I don't study the gear much these days. too lazy as well haha!! :D Also I got a feeling that neck thru would sound great no matter what you play it through. +1

JoeOnBass I was at a Sam Ash store and it was on clearance for $80 so I bought it. AT the time I had no idea I'd join Wikiloops and record every night, I'd have bought something with more modeling if I'd known. The neck through is a cool Schecter model, I'm not a big Schecter fan but this one particular bass is really strong in live situations, but it's heavy to carry. It's pretty much this model: https://www.schecterguitars.com/vault/stiletto-stage-4-white-detail +1

Ernie440 Nice streamlined bass at a reasonable cost!! You can pretty much find something decent in any midrange line. Same is true with the big names (U have to check them out .. duh!) ... always remember a guy trying to sell me his "ric" when I was playing my American jazz exclusively ... I put down my bass (was at band practice) picked up the "ric" and noodled a bit ... it felt like a piece of lightweight garbage with a shitty tone .. I always heard they were legendary .. this one wasn't apparently. Maybe it was a Chinese copy who the ***k knows!! :D:D +1

JoeOnBass I was never a Ricenbacker fan, I always remember people playing Rics through Ampeg heads and Earth Cabs, (just made myself old with that comment) they just sounded muddy to me. I have a bunch of basses, live I play a Kubicki, a MusicMan Sterling and some other really cool things, but recording is tough. I guess you need a P-Bass (not for me) and a Jazz Bass and you're good for almost any sound. I muddle through with constantly tweaking the sound to hear something cool. With the pre-amp I have I can get a bluesy and jazzy "full sound", and this metal sound with almost any bass. It seems like every recording has a different sound on it. It's funny though, my live amp sound is always the same no matter what bass I use. Recording, not so much. I'm still learning. :-) +1
