Hollowbody/Short-Scale Basses and Wolf Tones (Hofner)
My first and only introduction to this type of sound was my German-made Hofner 500/2 Club bass with so called "cavern" pickup spacing (essentially has two neck pickups, one against the neck and one a little farther back). One of the challenging things about playing this bass is that how you play it (pick vs. fingers, where you attack the string, how hard you attack the string, etc.) has a drastic effect on how prominent the wolf tones are. They're always there, but more so on certain notes and they can be muted by different playing techniques. I'm just wondering if this is something that people find common with these types of basses. Also I'm hoping that some other Hofner club owners can chime in with their thoughts. Thanks!
