I have the L2500 Tribute; the biggest downside for me was that the actives only cut and don't offer any boost.
I'd buy a proper amp first, but that's just me.
Look, I don't believe in God because I have to, and I don't follow the Ten Commandments JUST so I can go to heaven, and I don't need to proove that God exists, because if you choose not to take faith, good for you. There's nothing wrong with that. I take faith in God because that's what is important to me.
i may get grilled for this but i think it could be jaco... i respect him but i just don find his stuff groundbreaking...
oh pete wentzz is hardly a bassist.. hes a huge scene kid
No offense, but you have quite possibly the worst username I've EVER seen. Even worse than those BandName/Musician_YearofBirth names.
A 15" combo is something you DON'T want if you want come clear tones. At that level, you should be looking for 10" speakers (but don't settle for 1). Also, that combo is a bit underpowered - you might want something >200W if you're going to be playing with a band. I always forget the name, but Ashdown has that 185W head that puts out 307W when you hook up another cab.
we both now that metalcore and hardcore are more based on punk than metal but I'll shut up.
If you've got quite a bit of cash, might want to look into Eden amps.
Nicew logic, hypocrite kid. If you're joking, it's poor taste. If you're not, I sincerely feel sorry for you. We don't appreciate that sort of attitude in this parts. It's deconstructive, rude, and is effectively trolling. I suggest you don't pull out that card again. Does anyone here say things about the fact you like Guns and Roses? No. I personally don't like them, but that doesn't mean I'm going to disregard your opinion for it. However, being a jerk will. Nickelback are a great band, you can't deny them that. You don't sell the amount of records they have for sucking. You can argue that point as much as you want, but rap artists sell becaus they're good at what they do, pop groups sell because they are good at what they do. This thread is asking for good rock albums with good bass playing. Nickelback more than meets that requirement, more so than Dream Theater, Symphony X and Mastodon- WHO AREN'T ROCK, BTW, CAN'T PEOPLE LEARN TO READ WHAT THE TS IS ASKING?
Saying that someone has no opinion based on the bands they like is, quite frankly, pathetic.
Soapbar pickups are single coils but much fatter sounding. In guitar's they're typically creamy. In a bass they give it quite a modern edge as opposed to the familier Fender single coil.

Greg McPherson is a BEAST!
The Jaguar does have some special features - parallel/series switching, active/passive switching. However, you CANNOT blend pickups. AT ALL. The pickups have on and off switches. Period.
EDIT: If people think the Jag neck is too thick but the Geddy Lee is just fine, you either have just wrong technique or you're just not a bass player. The Jag/Jazz neck is about as thin as it gets without being comical - i.e. the Geddy Lee neck. It's like a cracker.
oh, sorry i have another question... We're almost finished with a home recording studio, and we'll start recording our songs then. Do you think we should use a mic (kick drum mic maybe?) or record direct for the bass?
haha all right that's encouraging. plus our band isn't playing staduims...yet... so i guess the most we need to worry about is volume over the drums and guitar, which it seems to do fine.
plus there's a DI for PA's so if we ever get to play something bigger or start gigging that woudl come in handy.
wow i din't know you were only getting 185 watts by itself... that's interesting. if he's got the money i think we should at least try the 115 Combo + 2x10 or just the 4x10. if everyone's saying it's better, we might as well just give it a shot.
why is it always money (or lack thereof) that gets in the way of things? eh, that's life i suppose.
Ah, i see you actually have that amp. It's good to know you're reccomending from experience!
if you don't mind me asking, in what way was the 4x10 better? more high end response? or just overall more clarity and response form all frequencies? It's a little over $200 dollars more, and he might not be able to afford the 1x15 for a while until he saves up.
roland cube 60.
doesnt he use a tech 21 preamp?
that is.. unless the ads in bassplayer are lyign to me.
you cant keep a motherfcker like me down for long. plus i am single now
Damn this thread is good. nice one to all you guys who put time into this. wish it was here when i started!
Bumper that is just fcked up!! where can i can get some?
On the whole thing about Gibson churning out top quality instruments, I've heard nothing but bad stuff about the quality of their guitars straight from the factory. My mate bought an SG a year or so ago and it was completely unplayable straight from the box, the action was way too high, the intonation was way off, the neck was bowed and where the set neck had been joined, it had been done very poorly and there was glue all around the joint leaving an ugly look under the finish.
Another mate bought a Les Paul not too long ago as well and by the nut, there was a huge crack between the fretboard and the neck where they had begun to separate.
These are the 2 Gibson nightmares I've seen, I've heard and read about many others too.
