    Just read this, thought it pretty worthwhile.

    Mediocre tip #8: If you’re not getting the results you want, get new equipment

    Isn't this tip the sole reason behind half the threads on TalkBass! We're ALWAYS talking GAS here! :smug:

    Sounds like the guitarist in one of my bands. 10% mediocrity and 90% confidence apparently make for a pretty successful formula.

    Nice to know I've been doing the right thing all along. Actually, I think I'm probably Advanced Mediocre....:thumbsup:
