For the past few years i've only played active basses. Lately I've really been missing the sound of a good passive p bass thump. I had an amstd p bass a few years ago, but sold it. I've also been playing 5 strings lately, but am starting to think I'm more of a 4 string guy. I might sell one of my 5 strings and get a couple p basses, one with flats, and one with rounds.
