Hey guys, Newbie here on the forum.. visited the tabssection more than an 100 times. Figure a lot of experienced bassplayers surf around here, so this would be a good place to ask this question: I'm gonna buy a new bass after summer- but I am still doubting between 4 or 5 snare. In my band we have several songs using a 7-string guitar and thus a 5-snare bass, but they could easily be played on a downtuned 6-snare. A firend of ours, a real expert on recording AND basses, honestly thinks my current Status Graphite is crap. He also advises me to buy a 'normal' 4 snare bass- they seem to be in quality way better than any 5 snare. And then, preferably a Chort-bass. How do y'all feel about 4/5 snares?? And about Chort-basses?? Do give me info please!!
