I'm a guitarist, and I use a Reverend Hellhound 40/60 combo. It's widely regarded as the best tube amp for under 1000 dollars. Now that I'm thinking of playing bass, is there a King of Cheap Basses? I'm looking in the 500-800 range for a Tool/Soundgarden type sound. Any suggestions? Include any mods ie bass/pickup combos you think are good, since it seems every last stock pickup on earth sucks balls.
