*caution bass noob!*
I have a Lakland 55-02 with bartolinis I've had for over a year, but I'm a guitarist and have the bass just for under pinning any mixes I do (only pick playing).
I've been fiddling about with my axe fx II trying to get some good metal tones out of it, which hasn't gone too well just yet if i'm honest!
This is going to sound ridiculous, but I don't even know what pickup/s or on board EQ to start with technically. For instance, on guitar you're always going to be on your bridge pickup for a cutting metal tone. I figure this doesn't translate to bass necessarily!
Anyhow, I've been checking out some clips and been thinking that a Spector with EMGs might push me more in the direction of where I want to go in terms of out of the box tone.
I don't want to give up on the lakland yet though as I know it's a very versatile instrument (the main reason I bought if off my pal). So I thought i'd join up and see if you guys might have any tips
