Hey all, I need some advice (mods feel free to move this if this isn't the right spot). I haven't played bass in about 8 months and sold off all my gear except for my bass guitar (an Ibanez SRX705) and a practice amp. However, I have an opportunity to be a part of a prog metal band with some pretty heavy hitters, and I can't pass it up (can't give away anything now as nothing's been announced, but some of you have definitely heard of their previous bands) To the point, I'm looking for some advice for creating a rig from scratch. 1. Power is not a limiting factor. Depending on where this goes, I'd like to be able to play large venues without having to redo my rig 2. Simple is better. I have never been into the wizardry of trying to piece together 12 pedals in a board, I want something where I can add a reverb, chorus, eq, tuner, and tube screamer, and be done with it. 3. Bass tones I like and would like to be able to get close to: Ryan Martinie (Mudvayne), Tim Commerford (RATM), Jordan Eberhardt (The Contortionist), Steve Harris, and Nick Schendzielos (JFAC). 4. I know I can't do all of this with an El Cheapo rig, but I'm not rich, so price is a factor. The less expensive the better. Any and all advice is welcome, as I am not a tone wizard by any means. Thanks in advance!
