I need some help finding a good sound. I want something more "standard" than what I have right now. I have a 4 string IBanez BTB series with the active preamp. It must be the active pickups because my sound is just too aggressive for what I do. I cut through too much I think. I am in a cover band so I need something that doesn't stand out too much, but can still be heard. I feel like I am competing with the other sounds in the band instead of providing that backbone. SOOOO I am wandering should I venture into the land of Fender and the P bass? I was never too fond of them, but I like the simple nature of it. Especially the Mark Hoppus p bass with just the volume knob. any ideas on what basses I should check out?
