For a while now, I've been getting closer to my perfect gear list. First a Gallien Krueger 400RB with a 410, then an Ernie Ball Musicman 5 string. Today, for my birthday (the 22nd), my folks ordered me a Sansamp Programmable BDDI from Musicians Friend. I am very excited about it! I've always felt I needed just a little something to boost my sound over the edge, and I think this is it. I've watched every video demo and review I could get my hands on for months, and now I've finally ordered one. We also ordered some DR Neons and I'm excited to see how the new tone combination works out. I've switched from chasing a trebly tone to a mid-centric growly sound like Tool, Rage Against The Machine, etc. Just thought I'd share my excitement with Talkbass.
