    I have just transitioned over to a Schecter Stiletto Extreme 5 and am looking for a certain sound in particular. Would love to get Tully Kennedy sound, but don't have the money to dive into a Sadowsky. I was wondering if there was a way to add some pedal effects to get close? Thanks so much for any input.

    looks like your stiletto has a different type of configuration with 2 soap bar pickups and probably a completely different style of preamp. if tully is playing a sadowsky jazz bass you might have a tough time getting it to sound close. best thing you could do i suppose would be to either run through a preamp or a preamp/eq pedal and try to tweak your sound and hand position to where you can approximate the tone as best you can. if your stiletto had the same 2 jazz pickup configuration it would be a little more straight-forward. however, i've never heard a stiletto before so i'm not really sure what it sounds like. i'm just making an assumption based on the pictures i'm seeing online.
