hey all. I'm very basic (BASSic) when it comes to the sound I like to hear when I play. Warm, tube round sound (with only subtle gain, midrange variations). And I don't see the need for a huge collection of basses in my life, only if I was to use them all at the same time. My amp rig is too simple. And I don't have a ton of basses. I have a few brands that I'm in love with, amps/guitars, and I stick with them for the most part. And I don't over indulge. I'm just wondering, is a bass player's mystique also due to the amount of gear he/she has? Some product reviews online have these guys telling about every bass they own, and amps, preamps, and crap as if they're bragging. To me, it's about the sound you like, and the sound that comes out. Any thoughts?
