    They are both possibly useful, but a little different. You can read reviews of both of them in the reviews link in my sig. The LMB3 is better for bass with no modifications; the CS3 loses some low end and is a bit noisy. However there are some electronic modifications for the CS3 which can give it a good low end and lower the noise. After those mods, I prefer the tone of the CS3 over the LMB3 (which is otherwise a bit boring sounding). So if it was me making the choice, I would get the LMB3 if I wanted simply to plug in and be done; or I would get modifications performed to the CS3 if I was willing to spend the time and money on that, because the tone is more interesting.

    Awake, those are much larger and more complicated questions, that can only be answered by two methods:
    1) Experiment on your own. Only you can discover what sounds right to you.
    2) Do a ton of research here in the forums, searching on terms and brands that interest you, and paying close attention to discussions of the tone, functions, and budgets that other people are trying to achieve. Compare their goals with your own.

    Good luck!

    +1 It may take years for you to learn what sort of equipment you really like best. I've been playing 25 years and I'm just getting a handle on my tone.

    OT, Bongo, I really like your new avatar :)
