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 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztmV1exprW0
Also similar pure tone, to this track with that deep slight grumble that hits you to the core: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwuM-IDh3pE
(I know thats a VST bass guitar, not a real one)
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...) http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/JBassSVVMNat/ http://www.musiciansfriend.com/bass/...ic-bass-guitar
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!
