    i have a mia pbass with flats and i want a modern r&b kinda tone for a few songs, what would should i get, besides an active bass with rounds?

    would a active preamp do the trick like the sadowsky pedal

    You sound like you're well on your way already. I suggest rolling off the tone quite a bit.

    yeah, I think you should be ok for now unless you want to get into the whole Marcus Miller thing

    the main difference between then and now boils down to they're using hifi amps or going direct now, wheras most guys back then mic'd ampegs or something.
