I'm currently playing a lowend Ibanez bass guitar, and i've found it hard to get a nice deep sound out of it. Even after messing with the settings on the guitar and the amp. Example, we played for a group of thousands for a conference, and the people running the system told me that they had a hard time picking up my sound. Granted they payed for a pretty good amount to have these guys come in and run our system.. I'm assuming more than likely due to my bass not having enough "kick." I'm currently looking to upgrade my ibanez to something better. Have you guys heard of the song "Forever Changed" by Eddie Kirkland? I'm looking for a bass that can rumble like that or make that tone/sound. I forgot to note the sound is coming out from my Ampeg bass amp, so i've figured it's not the amp anymore. It's the guitar!
