I have been searching around about the acoustic simulator by Boss initially built for guitarists. I am curious to know what it sounds like on bass (or other acoustic simulators). I play a Tom Clement fretless bass with tapewounds and it gets a pretty woody/earthy tone. I was wondering if the Acoustic Simulator on bass would open up the the woody sound and get closer to an upright tone. Of course, I understand you can't get an identical upright tone, so lets refrain from comments like, "Get an upright." Plus, Tarus Mateen gets a pretty close upright tone, and by close I mean... wow! However, I don't have nearly $3,500 for the bass. And it's more about getting that round thump for the groove than it is about getting an exact upright tone. I watched James Carter Organ Trio and that organ had such a round bassy tone that I didn't care there was no bassist. It grooved hard! In addition to using an acoustic simulator... How would a preamp built for a double bass sound on fretless? I feel like we should be able to get near the sound of a double bass with a pickup since it's no longer straight acoustic, right?
