  1. hello to all! i just wanted to ask for help with getting the sound i want from the gear i have. im not brand new but i used to post on this site a couple years ago. anyways, i have a fender standard p-bass(a mexican one) and an ampeg BA115HP. i really like the way the bassist from Burlap To Cashmere sounded and i am looking for a similar sound. I dont mind spending a little cash to upgrade but i dont want to buy crap i wont use. i was thinking along the lines of some new pickups and maybe a preamp or whatever you guys may suggest. im sorry if i posted this in the wrong forum topic, any suggestions are appreciated.

    I'm not familiar with the bassist you talked about. Could you post a clip of the sound you're looking for, or describe it?
     
  3. ive never been very good at describing the way a bass sound sounds, but its kinda midrange sound, punchy and round, does that make sense?
     
  4. arrghhh! i cant post a sound clip so you can see what i mean!!
