Me and my band have entered a local Battle Of The Bands. The backline is set, so I can't use my own amp(this is to make it fairer). Now, I can however use pedals, so I was thinking of using my Sansamp BDDI for some nice tone tweaking(I may keep the blend completely off, and jsut use it as a preamp). Now, which bass should I use? I have a Spector Euro LX, which gets quite middly and burpy when I solo the bridge pickup, a Warwick Thumb (but I'm not sure this will sound very good without an amp to bring out the mids), or my Ibanez BTB with 3 band variable mid EQ? I'm leaning towards the Ibanez, because although it isn't as high end as my 'wick or spector, and nor does it sound as nice when I put it up against the Spector and Warwick through my own amp, it may yield more of my tone than when I don't have my own amp. On the other hand I do have an EQ pedal, but this can be a bit tempremental, and none of the sldiers effect the 500hz range, where my tone is. What d'ya reckon I should do?
