Hi. I am considering buying a fretless bass. Just love the sound of one. What I am wondering is if there is anything you can't do on a fretless or if there is something that sounds a lot worse on a fretless than a fretted. The things that are on my mind especially are: 1. Does slapping/popping sound a lot worse on fretless basses in general than fretted basses? Or does it just depend on the bass itself? The bass that I currently own is an acoustic/electric Epiphone El Capitain and you can't really slap/pop on that effectively and I still want to have a bass where that is an option. 2. Do certain effects pedals sound worse for a fretless than fretted? In my case, I have a Dunlop Crybaby bass wah pedal, EHX Big Muff, and soon I will have an Akai Deep Impact bass synth pedal. Anyone with experience with fretless basses and utilizing these, please give me your feedback. Much appreciated.
