Background: This is my band: Recently our bassist quit and I have been playing bass. We play lots of dance stuff: kool&gang, commodores, etc. The sound man like the sound of my rig but wanted to get you guys opinions. Currently using a MIA jazz bass I scored off this website a few years ago. I would guess its a 90s model but need to check serial number. Using a Hartke HA3500 found used on Craigslist and plugging it in to a GK BLX 4x10 cab. Sounds ok to me but I'm new to bass. Sometimes seems the d & g strings don't have much pop. Also, this j bass feels really heavy after 3-4 hours.
