I'd appreciate input on how I can complete my bass gear stack. I live in a very remote area - I'm about 6 hrs North of Boston, along the coastline, next to Canada. Thus, I have minimal ability to try and compare gear. On the other hand, after 35 years as a guitar player, I'm very picky about sound. For instance, nearly all DSP drives me nuts. Here's my current gear set: Schecter Diamond Series 5 string with Fralin pickups and Nordstrand pre, but from a TB'er (first really nice bass - love it). Practice and low volume gigs: Acoustic Image Clarus 2R with Raezer's Edge Stealth 12 ER. Loud gigs: Acoustic Image Clarus 2R, preamp out to Crown XLS 402, one or two Fitzmaurice Omnitop 15s. An assortment of pedals, including some DIY. I (over)use my Moog low pass filter, a diy wooly mammoth clone, a DIY tap tempo modulating delay, boss flanger, diy chorus. I've been selling everything not nailed down, to amass budget for a better bass rig. At the moment I'm at $1500, but could get another $1K if I'm brutal and patient with selling. Gear I'm considering: A GB shuttle 6.0 with 12T cab. A shuttle(max) and Fearful 15/6. A 5 string 35" scale fretless, with 19mm spacing, to match my current fretted 5 string. Any input would be appreciated.
