Help a bass-newcomer out with tone
Hey guys Ive been a drummer my whole life and I just recently decided I wanted to pick up learning the bass guitar.
I guess I really just wanted help picking out my first bass, and trying to find this specific tone.
Anyways, I really want to be able to emulate this sound, whether live or recorded :
Also similar pure tone, to this track with that deep slight grumble that hits you to the core:

Currently Im looking at the Squire Modified Jazz bass 5 string, and the ESP LTD B205sm 5-string. I know the ESP is much better suited for metal, but it just looks so damn awesome!
Would a P & J bass be better suited for this sort of tone? (I realize he probably did post production work to the sound, but still...)
I also purchased a Hartke Attack bass preamp to help boost and shape my sound.
Any ideas for a good sub $400 bass that can get damn near that tone in the video?
Note: I will mostly be using this for recording purposes, so lets pretend an amp is out of the equation. When I will be using an amp, it will be my band-mates.
Sorry if this is too newbie for this forum, Id understand.
Anyways thanks a head of time!
I think that Squire Modified Jazz bass 5 string is more than capable of getting that tone and remember technique also plays an important part of getting "that" tone good luck with your search.
Thanks for the advice man! Yeah I definitely will be learning my fair share of technique, and adjustments to my instrument. Appreciate your input though. Too bad, I really love the look of the ESP.
Anyone familiar with Jackson basses?
