    hi i just joined the site and ive been playing the bass for about a year and a half now... ive got a band togeather and i was wondering...would it be more worth my money to get new pickups for my esp b-50 bass or a multi-effects pedal? my band plays mostly rock and metal and punk my dad tells me i should get pickups ive asked a guy i kno who has played guitar for like 36 years and he says effects so i just dont kno...heres my bands website tho :D

    Pickups. Using effects on a crappy signal will do you no justice, a good, clean signal can be great for anything, affected or not.
