Hi, Mr. Watt. Your bass work over the years has inspired me more than any other bass player around. Justamente Tres is a phenomenal album, it's tasteful, flowing, complicated but not over the top. I've been itching to play some solo bass shows but the problem is getting a decent bass sound. I have a cheapie fender precision and a 70's "acoustic" bass amp with a single 15'...they don't make them anymore. I play finger picking style and mostly chords focusing on melodies. I find that it's either too bassy to pick out notes clearly or if tinker with treble, it becomes too trebly..no happy medium. My question (finally!) is there anything i can do to get a decent tone?? Im planning to play smaller venues and have thought about buying an accoustic bass and going direct through the board..im at a loss. Any suggestions and what do you do with Dos to get those wonderful rich, clean tones live???? I hope kira and you plan to tour in the future ...hopefully stop in toronto (canada) When you tour for the new solo album, i'll be front row and center at as many candian shows as possible. God bless the watt!!
