I've had my fretless Mouse for about a year or so now and I love it. Its pretty much my bass of choice although I might switch to active/passive jazz's for the odd song. I'm playing old school blues rather than rock blues as well as a bit of jazz. There's also some rootsy stuff and overall sound is more 50's than modern. I aim for a reasonable approximation of a DB sound and like a warm, woody sound without mud. Some songs I want to sit nicely in the mix, other perhaps more melodic material I want to cut through but still retain warmth. I like to hear the notes (in in spite of the odd intonation glitch - which I'm still working on). I'm currently using an Ampeg 450H with a 4 x 10 HLF which gets me reasonably close but not quite there. Strange as it may seem, I preferred the mos-fet Ampeg to the valve ones. Anyway, I'm thinking of changing to light weight equipment to save my ailing back and I'd appreciate your input. I did have a look sometime back (before I got the mouse) and tried Euphonic, Mark bass, Aguilar and Phil jones and found them a bit clinical sounding. I found the same with a number of Neo cabs as well. I know things have moved on though so I'd appreciate any up to date input you might have. I have noticed some great deals with the Genz Benz stuff at the moment which made me wonder about suitability. My thoughts at the moment are perhaps a GB Streamliner coupled with a Barefaced Super Compact although I wonder about the apparent lack of EQ on the Streamliner as well as ongoing support for Genz Benz with what has happened to them recently. I'd appreciate your thoughts.
