I recently played a Ken Smith bass and fell in love with the tone. It's a five string bass with active pickups... The price is around 3000.00!!!

 

Too much! Can any of you guys give me some opinons on a good 4 string bass with active pups at a reasonable price? Looking for that smooth, deep thump sound. I don't slap, just play with a pick (no fingers).

 

Gracias!

As far as midrange active basses, go, I'd say get an Ibanez. Or maybe a MusicMan SUB with active pickups. I've never played an active SUB, but I don't think you can go wrong with a MM
:)
Though it looks like the SUB line is discontinued...

 

they are, but it looks like 5s are going for around $500 on ebay. the 4-string version was the first bass i bought, actually, and the tone is definitely what the OP would be looking for. it has a really smooth low end and a nice attack when you use a pick. but be warned: this is not a stingray, so that's about all it does. the diamondplate pick guard was a little nu-metal for my tastes, but that was cheap to replace.
