    by low end i mean a bass with good lows such as mudvayne korn killswitch and stuff like that really low end sound chunky sounding but ten again have good highs :meh:
  4. Musicman Stingray 5-String would be my choice

    Mudvayne does not have a low end sound. If anything it is very midrange. Kill switch is pretty much well rounded.

    Low end sound would be Reggae or Dub. Korn would be low because of what they tune to. But they have a scooped sound with highs and lows without mids.

    With influences like those, I'd go for a Warwick if they're in your price range. Try out the Corvette and the Bolt-on thumbs. Both are great instruments, but many complain about the pickups and the feel.

    I would say to get a MTD Kingston or if money allows get a used a Spector or another consideration would be a Tobias Toby Pro.

    Hit every music store in you area. Play as many basses as you can. Make them hook you up the good amp whatever it may be for that particular store. Take the amp and the axe from high to low. Every note, every fret. Remember what works for all of us that may answer this thread, may not work for you. Do some serious window shopping so to say. Don't use any effects or EQ. Let the Bass do it's own talking.

    I tottaly agree with odie on the part about mudvayne not having a low end. I like korn a bit and It is the way they tune. Dropped A.

    But I have no experience with too mny other basses.
