During the last years, i always played with modern sounding basses, such as Warwick and Spector basses... and i still love them!
But i'm trying to find something new for me to play.
I recently found a Fender Mustang from the Pawn Shop series, when going in one of my local stores. I really liked it, and think that i might buy it. But it's a 4 string, and i really feel better with 5 strings. I somehow get bored when i don't have a low B, so i'm really hesitating.
The most important thing that i didn't like about it was the annoying noise i had, when hitting the strings too hard.
Would lowering the mic totally remove this problem? I'm not familiar with the Fender mic.
I also heard about the Warwick Rockbass Starbass 5 string. I managed to find some videos on youtube, and it seems to be quite a good bass. But I can't try it, as no shop around me has it.
Did anyone play it? How does the Rockbasses feel? Would the 5th string sound ok on a "cheap" Rockbass?
If you think about any another bass that would really sound different from what i already have, please tell me!
