    Ok guys i need a little help.

    I've been playing bass for almost 2 years. I play mostly blues and rock music. I started out with one of those bass package deals. You know the one made by create. It came with the create bass electra which i upgraded the p-ups to vintage fender '62. I also use DR low riders for strings. Then i upgraded the amp to a yorkie xm200 2x10 w/15" extension. its now good enough to jam with a buddies but the tone is still not quite there yet.

    So here's the decision i have to make.

    1. buy sansamp bddi
    2. buy carl martin compessor/limiter
    3. buy new bass.(i know a local guy with a used t-40 for $300)

    I think 2 years is more than enough to buy a new bass... You WILL have the urge sooner or later anyways :D

    go buy a new bass...have fun

  4. I think it is time for a used bass. those T-40's are pretty sweet instruments if it is in good shape and you can handle the weight of the thing. they weigh about 13 pounds. I think that would be a great one to get if you could talk the guy down to like $250 or something.
