I love the P-bass sound, it's probably my favorite sound. I just bought a Fender Highway 1 P-Bass (sunburst **) and I love the way it sounds, I want to add a pickup to have more tonal variety. Now here I have a sound clip, and in the clip (modest mouse: bury me with it) the bassist is playing a Ric. I was just wondering what I would have to do to sound like that. I'm willing to mount a ric pickup on my pbass, neck or bridge, whatever it takes, or change strings to sound like that, I'm not willing to use a pick. I also haven't bought a big amp yet, so if you have any advice on an amp that would get me closest to that sound please enlighten me ($1000 budget for head/cab), I was thinking of a Traynor YBA200 and an avatar 15" pro. Basically: "Will mounting a SD Ric pickup on my pbass make it sound like a ric? Or would I have to buy a ric? (don't have that kind of money)" Oh... Hello to everyone, I've been looking around on this forum for tips for a while but just recently decided I should post. This seems like one of the best communities I've ever seen.
