So I am imminently buying a new bass, since my long-time stringed friend, the Fender Jazz Bass Plus 5er has been taken away from me I need something that will be somewhat versatile in tone, but the music I am playing right now will need a strong upper edge growl to it, and be able to interact nicely with various effects (namely, at the moment, my MXR Blowtorch, Ibanez PD-7 and SB-7, and probably an MXR El Grande when the one I've ordered comes in). I have an ATK305 on order currently, as I played with the 300 and really enjoyed the tones I got out of it, though not necessarily the pickup placement for my thumb to rest on, nor do I love the natural finish. It feels like a much more expensive bass than it actually is though, which is a plus. On the other side, I was introduced to a Yamaha BB415 last night that felt pretty solid .. I need to plug it in and really hear it go, and I'll probably end up renting in the interim while I wait for the ATK to show up .. but I am interested in some opinions as to which is the more solid instrument overall, and which would likely serve my purposes better. Sound off!
