So I've been playing on a Tobias Toby Pro 5 string for 8 years now (I'm 20 now). I'm now looking to upgrade. As usual my budget is tight (I want to spend less than $1200). I primarily play jazz but I do gigs in just about every style. Since I am a fan of Tobias, I am leaning towards the MTD Kingston KZ5 string as I really like the feel of the bass and the ability to adjust the tone with the built in pre-amp. However, part of me is leaning toward a musicman bass. Can anyone let me know if I'm making the right choice? Or do you have any suggestions of basses that can get a better smooth jazz sound?
