For anyone who's heard the Pixies song "Debaser", I've always wondered how that bass intro sounded so stacatto and percussive. Then I was at a guitar shop yesterday playing a few basses, and I came across a p-style fretless with flatwounds on it, and I ended up getting a really similar sound. Does anyone else think it sounds like the bass on that track might be fitted with flatwounds? My band plays similar loud alternative rock, and I play pretty basic 8th note patterns with a pick. I had always figured rounds were the obvious choice for that kind of setup, but this is making me think about experimenting with flats.
