ESP F-255 http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7...74/g=bass/s=amps/search/detail/base_id/116126 Peavey TNT 115 http://www.musiciansfriend.com/srs7.../g=bass/s=amps/search/detail/base_pid/481381/ Sadowsky preamp http://www.sadowsky.com/pages/pop_up/store_photos/preamp.html I don't own any of this yet, I'm still figuring it all out. I'm like $50 away from getting the ESP, i.e. 1-2 days of work (WOOPEE). And I WAS going to get an Ampeg BA115 but 100 watts isn't enough for gigging, and the peavey gives 200 watts. I was going to get a sansamp driver for the distortion, but the peavey comes with overdrive, so there's no need for the sansamp. I love the Sadowsky sound that J Newsted gets, so I'll try and add a bit of that to my tone. Thoughts? Opinions? Note - Dunno whether this goes in basses, misc, amps, whatever, so I just put it here.
