I've been looking into these and did a little reading of some older threads. I was considering buying one until I saw this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f0s2mFyQfT8 This is really not the kind of sound I'm into. Then I grew more hopeful when I saw this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7F8rDztviOY That's pretty good volume for that noisy environment, methinks and it sounds more thumpy than the other video. So is the difference in sound due mostly to string choice & finger vs pick playing? Can these things get a more BASS-like sound with the right strings and still retain the volume?
