It'd be impossible to try 'em all out as most shops scarce have one on hand. So I'm going off word of mouth, your word fellow reader. Here we go. I'm looking for a new, neck-thru, active pick-up, 5 string, at 2k or under. Preference would be something on the versatile side, one bass fits all songs. But if there's a really solid bass, well built, with fantastic hardware but it's one dimensional like say only a great reggae tone, I'm not entirely opposed to eq-ing and/or processing it if need be for non-reggae. Anyways I hope you get the idea and know where I'm coming from.
