Acoustic bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by the-lizard-king, Aug 21, 2001.


  1. Has anybody got or used an acoustic bass? I've seen some advertised in catalogues, and Im just wondering what they are like to play. What do they sound like? I've never seen anybody use one.
    My band has a couple of acoustic numbers, so I'd be interested in hearing how an acoustic bass would sound like.

  2. I'd say a fretless would fit the acoustic gig pretty well. Acoustics are fun (got one comin in the mail), but you just need to find one in a store, and give it a try. I just wanted to get one because it was cheap, and I wanted to fill out my collection.
