i discovered talk bass about 6 months ago, and i i'm very glad i did. but i notice a lot of people asking what sounds better or what should i buy. this is a great forum for bassist of all kinds to get together and talk about a vast number of subjects. but no one is going to be able to tell you what sounds good to you. what sounds terrible to someone else might be just the sound you are looking for and vice verse. this is a great place to get advice and to find out about things you might not find otherwise, but don't substitute anyone else's judgement for your own. you're the one who is going to be playing it!
