Well I got my BTB 450qm a year ago. When I tried it in the store I loved it, thought it was an amazing bass for playability and such. I liked the tone (back then) thought it was very versatile and that is the reason I bought it. Well it was very versatile only problem is I find it lacks warmth, kind of sterile. To be honest I like the tone on my Peavey Milestone better way warmer. Maybe I'm a passive guy. This tone thing annoys the hell out of me, great for slap but I love fat warmth. I changed the Elixers to low riders, still kinda have the problem, I thought it might be the amp but the peavey has no problem going through it. Ehhh I don't know maybe it's just that I'm playing solo and maybe it will perform better in a band situation or maybe it's just I haven't broken in the strings well yet. What kinda ticks me off is the fact that it's a year old and If I were to sell it I'd get very little, not worth selling, even though it's in great condition. Maybe I should have bought that Godin Well case in point does anybody ever go through this or had a similiar problem? And to the BTB users any kind of solution to this problem?
