I threw a set of Chromes on my Sadowsky NYC 4 for a rock gig last night and I am blown away. Best tone I have ever heard! I played through a SVT-CL and a Sadowsky 4x10. Honestly, in 20+ years of playing bass I have never heard such a good tone. Suprisingly, the Chromes on my Sadowsky sounded great even for RHCP and other funky stuff with slap. Slapping on a bass with flats? Who knew!?!?! Anyone else using flats on an active bass for rock/funk gigs?
