    alright, this may be kinda obvious, but I have always believed that good tone starts with the bass. What kind of fingerboard wood and body wood are in your bass? In addition, no good bass tone can get through if you don't have a amp setup that can produce the punch. Yes, there are random pedals and such that help a little, but I think the basics of your rig are way more important. Hope that helps.
