    And aren't rediculously expensive.

    Saying that I don't intend on changing them often (I'm a poor 17 year old) so it could be good.

    So what should I look out for if I want that Flea kinda sound?

    I play a Yamaha BB604 which has an active EQ (if that makes any difference)


    Thanks a lot
