    I've recently starting getting into recording solo bass and I want to get the point where I can handle all my recording needs. Do you have any suggestions on how to record solo bass?

    My current setup is my Schecter Stiletto bass running into my head and then into a PreSonus Firebox. I get a pretty strong sound out of it, but, I obviously need to incorporate some combination of reverb, etc. I was told to use compression but I'm extremely new to recording and I don't really know what I'm doing...haha.

    If you have the time, I have a test recording that gives an example of what kind of raw sound I'm working with at:

    Thanks :D
