Moral of the Story?

    i bought a sr300 four years ago on a whim. got a great deal so i though i would have a new beater bass. leave it at work, use it for travel etc... i keep it at work with a headphone amp. in four years i have never played it though main rig. tce rh750, rs410, rs212. my main bass is a 2012 sr600 with upgraded pups and pre so it is basically a $1000 bass at this point. after playing the sr300 through my tc rh750 rig i am astonished how good this bass sounds. the pups and pre on sr600 are hotter and a there is little more growl if you want but you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between the two. both sound fantastic.
    to be honest it kind of makes me feel like a snob. i didn't even consider a "cheap" bass could sound as good as my upgraded sr600 so i didn't even give it the chance. boooo on me. anyway glad i finally did!

  7. I've also got a (10') SR600, and have it setup in BEAD, but I'm curious what pups/pre you went with? I've thought what it would sound like with the Darkglass Tone Capsule like on the NG2 Dingwall, but I've already got a B3K so the mod would be a waste of time and money. I like the Bart MK1s ..... weird huh.

  15. Play 300 for a month and then get back to 600. You'll be surprised how good 600 sounds. Vice versa for another month. And so on... You can create your own surprise present every month or so from now on! :)

    If you're an SR player, keep searching for a SR out of Japan from the early-mid 1990's...amazin'.

    Your audience can’t hear how much you spent on your bass.

    If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, but barks like a dog... you should probably kill it.
