    Hi all,
    I'd like to have some feedback on this comparison: I'm interested in understanding which one of this 2 basses is more appropriate for playing metalcore music or in general kind of powerful sound/ dropped tunings.

    These are the models I'm looking at:
    http://www.schecterguitars.com/bass/omen-4-detail
    http://www.schecterguitars.com/bass/diamond-p-custom-active-detail

    I had the chance to try the Omen-4 and the sound was impressive, very powerful, my only note would be the string buzzing when D-dropped but I guess that is a matter of setup correctly the bridge and maybe using a thicker string.

    Nobody carries the Diamond P, I tried to look at the pickup specs but it's hard to tell if you cant hear them on the same amp and you're not a big expert.

    Thank you,
