Dingwall and Darkglass....

You too can sound just like every other metal bassist!

Yeah I second this.

They do sound good though, even if everyone is just trying to sound like nolly.

The first trend I noticed in my bass playing career was Baddass bridges (it took me over 25yrs to get one myself). CIJ / MIJ Fenders were massive in the old Bassworld days but are rarely mentioned now. And then the Sue Ryder basses were a thing. And yes, fretwraps too.

Anything Orange (the brand, not the colour). Massively over priced and as good as anything else out there, but every bassist seemed to be obsessed with them.

I'd agree on the Terror heads but as a (very happy) Orange user who plays a lot, I've rarely met anyone who uses the cabs. I think my criticism is more that they are a bit one trick pony - if you like the trick, great, otherwise they are probably not for you.

Not to derail the thread but let's be honest that guy would be much better off playing guitar. 

Wash your mouth out ! How dare you ?

Before everyone rushes to slate me, its only my opinion and I'm more than happy to accept that I'm probably wrong. 

You are, because no one is ever “better off playing guitar
