I play in an electronica band and am looking for a new bass. My dry tone I would like to be remnant of Stuart Zender of Jamiroquai or Dan Kurtz of The New Deal (fast, in the pocket finger funk, lots of ghost notes). I also mess with a decent amount of effects (octave + low pass filter sweep type stuff) and other various things which I want to be reproduced as well as possible. I've been playing an active corvette proline for the past several years and I think i've forgotten what a passive bass even sounds, so I'm definitely open to suggestions for both active and passive. I'll probably go the used route as I'll be able to save a bit of money, but I don't mind spending as much as $1500.
