    Is it just me, or is TB monitoring my thoughts? Is the collective “think” branching into my conscious/subconscious curiosities? Every morning when I check (and I freely confess that I’m an addict), I see a thread addressing the very same thought/question/gear circulating in my mind. It’s freaking me out just a little bit. Someone pull back the curtain...I want to see the wizard.

    I do believe Marc, the Bass Wizard, is a member here. Also has a killer YouTube channel.

    I guess if I get on here enough someone else will have the same questions I have, but almost EVERY DAY. I’ve been thinking of getting a short scale budget bass as a backup for me and a practice bass for my daughter, and boom...opinions on basses under $500.

    I’ve just bought an active bass, my first one, and I’ve been given advice on a possible preamp swap...and again, preamp opinions.

    I won’t go through all the examples, but it’s like an algorithm. But how? Just chance I suppose. Putting aside the drama and tangents, this is a fantastic resource.

    You'll need to ignore the majority of what you see over in basses. Very easy to take what you have for granted. You bought your active because you liked how it was, not because you saw room for improvement. Am I wrong?

    True. I’ve read a lot of negative energy for Tonepumps, but from what I heard in the store, it sounded pretty good to me. That being said, I do like to educate myself as to what others are doing. But sometimes I wonder if tweaking in less expensive/invasive ways would be preferable (fiddling with tone knobs, amp eq adjustments, speakers, pedals, etc.)

    I’ll begin the discovery when it arrives today...Christmas in August.
