Bass Tone Families and Characteristics
What are the main categories of bass tones? What are the characteristics of each category in terms of frequencies represented and timber?
For instance, a Sadowsky sounds different than a Fender jazz but it's certainly in the same tonal family. Well how does the the P bass, Stingray, Warwick, MTD, Ken Smith, etc. compare to the Jazz tone in terms of frequency reponse and other tonal characteristics?
I understand the question is abstract; still would love to hear opinions.
