Hi there Talkbass I'm in a slight dilemma here. I'm in my high school's jazz band but there isn't a double bass there that I could begin to learn/practice with (don't know how to really play one), and its not something I can't really afford even a cheap one (money is rather tight at the moment) which gives me little choice other than to play my electic. Any help in helping me achieve the sound of a double bass would be greatly appreciated. Right now I'm using a G&L SB-2 (P&J pick-ups) and a BP-80 pedal to get my sound. I normally just turn the bass way up on the EQ and turn down treble and mids. So far it got me slightly closer but Its definetly lacking still any suggestions?
