Country Bass??

Discussion in 'Ask Mike Watt [Archived]' started by Wesley33, Dec 14, 2001.


  1. I'm looking for the perfect bass to get that mello country music sound. Thought some of you may have some good suggestions. Should I go passive or active? I want to stay with a five string if that makes a difference. I'm currently playing a Peavey Cirrus 5 with a wenge top. I'm not looking to replace this bass, just ad to the collection!!

    Thanks,
    Wes

    hi,

    don't know much about five strings cuz I don't play them but a good country bass is a fender precision (especially the old style) or the fender telecaster bass. most of the sound that'll fit good though is from the hands rather than the machine - it's how you play it: your touch on the strings and the composition of your part.
