I'm sick of guitarists having cheap tone shaping options. All the Bass Heads/pre's I hear are the same. Why can't they make more steps FORWARD instead of BACKWARDS? I understand vintage tone and all, but come on! There is NO evolution these days as far as new gear in the Bass Gear area. Does anyone know of any makers/heads/pre's that let you do more tone shaping than most? I'm looking for something more modern. Thanks.
