After trading away my Warwick $$5. I started playing my Stingray Classic again for the first time in a while. Wow does the Stingray seem clean. I guess I got used to the Warwick's growl. The SR seems to sound lame now. The good news is I bought a Swollen Pickle to fuzz it up (which is pretty nice), but wow am I surprised at the difference between the two basses and how quickly I got used to the $$ Corvette. Over the next few days I'm going to really A/B my Stingray against my MIA Jazz and see if the SR might have to move on in favor of something different. Yes, I know I had the volume down a bit on my TerrorBass, but I did bump it up just to see if that was the issue. Twas not. The SR is just awfully clean compared to the $$.
