Re: What bass guitar sounds DON'T you like?

The sound that frustrates the schnitzel out of me is that really clacky, sticky sound that always seems to happen on gear review videos. Even with headphones or a good sound system it's like they've removed the bass 50% and boosted the higher freqs. All you hear is a metric-fk-tonne of string buzz ...

Cool bass Heath, even if it's a bit of a porker at 4.6kg. Having said that, I would still love to have one. Enjoy!

Re: What bass guitar sounds DON'T you like?

sorry for digging up an ancient thread. I know a lot of people find it annoying for some reason. :) Fine by me, I missed it the first time around :) I do 90% of my gigs on a bass with one pickup (stingray) and I'm just fine with it. Other bass players like it. On the gigs where I take a bass with t...

Re: Record with flats, gig with rounds?

lots of wise advice here. I am really stuck at the moment, totally confused as to which I prefer, flats or rounds. So I guess the answer is that I swing both ways hehe Well it's quite a generalisation but IMO it's a lot easier to eq rounds to sound like flats than the other way around. Fairly dead ...

Re: Short scale bass ideas?

For me at least transitioning to and from a short scale depends a lot on how it's laid out, and particularly how close to the endpin the bridge is located. I have two shorties (both 30"). One has a trapeze and the bridge is located a longgg way from the endpin. The reach to the first fret is only sl...

That is beautiful! What’s the weight, roughly?
Will pop it on the scales when I get home and post the weight here.
