Hey folks, So I am in the market for a bass. I don't have an amp and I don't really need one. I just need one for DI and im gonna be using vst plugs like the AMPEG SVX for simulating a good sound. It works well enough for my needs on the project. So a question for ya'll bass gurus, which one should I get? I asked a dude at the local music store, he recommended basses with active pickups, (he was pushing the bartolinis a bit as well, no they don't work on commission there). My budget is around 300 bucks, I don't care if its used (which it probably will be), its just for this project I have going (im primary a guitarist, please don't hate me for that lol).
