I'm a newbie to the forum, and know little about basses, so I apologise if this has been raised before. I've just started playing bass in a noise rock band (i'm normally a guitarist) in the vein of Shellac/The Jesus Lizard etc and as i'm really anal about getting the best sound/tone available, but at the moment am skint, I was after some tips on pimping my bass to make it sound as good as possible without having to fork out for a whole new bass. I have a Peavey Zodiac BXP which has 1 P bass style pickup and 1 J bass style pickup in it, obviously upgrading the pickups was my first idea but the question is to what? Also what kind of difference would changing the bridge to something like a badass make? Also would upgrading the volume/tone controls make much difference and if so can anyone recommend what to change them to? Any help would be gratefully received.
