Hello Talkbass, This is my very first thread. I'm a 16 years old bassist from Turkey. Sorry for not knowing the format, maybe I should have posted it somewhere else but OK without much talk here we go. My current home setup is a '94 "Jewel Blue" Ibanez SR400 and a Line 6 LD15 amp. For live situations I have The Mole bass booster by EHX, Boss DS-2 distortion, Boss OD-3 overdrive pedals and the Zoom 3000B processor. It's been quite some time since I first picked up the instrument and that was, and still is the original Korean made four stringer. It has served me quite well up to this day, however as I improved myself and got better and more serious over time Ibanez started not to fulfill my satisfaction. My learning days are already over and it seems that the Ibanez is not doing well enough in our recordings. It was a good starter bass but now I've got into a particular style, I wanna' invest in some better gear with the little pile of $ I made from playing at gigs. Imma fly over to Chicago,IL in ten days and I already minimized my search for the perfect snarly stoner bass to two candidates: '81 natural made in U.S.A tank heavy Peavey T-40 and 4 string natural striped neck-thru Lace Helix with hoooot dual alumitone p'ups. Now on to the ultimate question: Peavey or Lace? HELP ME penetrate through that mix like noone else can! Thank you and spiral out.
