Hey all. Unfortunately, I live in a town that has nil for bass equipment or knowledgeable sales people. It's just not like having the old Santa Ana, Hollywood and Fountain Valley GCs like in the old days. So, in my search for an affordible micro head, I have to research on line, and rely on your respected experience. I'll probably have to order on line. So, I get the feeling many of the new micros have that hifi, clanky kind of tone without the fat low mids I used to love in my old SVT and V4b. Can they, and which micro can get that fat tone. I stumbled on Frank Valley & The Four Season's Oh What A Night and realize the bass player has a tone pretty close to what I'm looking for; fat tuby low mid, but with mid-midrange that's articular but smooth. I still like percussiveness of say Roco too. Thoughts? I still like to slap here and there. Wondering about the PF500, but it's twice the size and weight of something like an mb500. I would also like the option of post eq DI. Thanks for humoring another tone question.
