Based on all the positive reviews, I got a used but in great shape BBG5S. Seems to have belonged to Skinny Bishop. It was gigged but is in great shape, just a bit of mojo. I would like to know if anyone owns or has owned this bass and what kind of advice you could give me. I am a little lost but it's going to come Fast. At least I am glad I do not have to stretch my fingers like crazy in the low frets (that's low as in 1st to 4th fret), I am starting to use the B string a bit more. What type of gear do you recommend to handle the low frequencies of the B string? My old Peavey will not handle it, it just gives a boooooooooph! type of sound, and my Pandora does not seem to be able to handle that type of low sound. I have a Crate Powerblock as well but currently no cab, I am also waiting for the right opportunity. Would a 210 be able to give a good sound? I am also not used to the active electronics. I used to have a Hohner BA2 but at least you could turn off the pre-amp or run out of battery and still be able to play. What setting do you recommend? Thanks for the help!
