Just went to Guitar Center yesterday to get my bass setup. Waited for about 20 minutes and tried out a few basses...and then it hit me...the sound of a Pedulla! I believe it was a Thunderbass (it had 4 or 5 knobs, i can't remember), and the tone was amazing...it got a really awesome growl and deep, bassy gospel tone (my favorite tones ). I would definitely get one if i didn't get such a good deal on a Yamaha TRB-5!...I may just drop a Bartolini preamp in there. Way to go Pedulla!
