Looking for all your opinions; I am about ready to pull the trigger on a nicer bass given good financial opportunity and potential upcoming studio time (I am aware of the price difference between US lakland and Metro's). I currently play a 5502, which is setup well and really sounds pretty good to my ear, however, I cannot help to lean towards a Sad as it has been a dream of mine for some time - I have played over 20 years now. My tonal background = something leaning towards modern rocked up country, I do not slap and i really like a low mid chunky power with some grit to support the group. When I standout I try to do so in melodic lines and not leads. So, what say you, what are your thoughts?
