Greetings to the bass-player community! In fact I am drummer. I have practiced this instrument for years and I am very interested in starting playing bass. I think I will only play bass for my own satisfaction (but who knows) because drums are my instrument, and it takes enough of my time. I am a Metal fan and I was wondering which bass will fit my style. What I mean : - a 4 strings bass - great look for metal (K X V) - about 400/500$ - I play fast riffs, heavy rythms and sometimes harmonics. - Fingering is not for me, I use a mediator. I looked on BCRich bass guitars, but someone told me the sound was bad. I also looked on Jackson basses (KBX) and did not have any opinion. Someone told me to look for Epiphone but I did not find any cool looking basses in the stores around me. Are Aria basses cool? Thanks for your support.
