Playing my P-bass all the time It seems like my tone is overly boomy compared to other players I hear. I anchor my thumb to the p pickup and try to use a light touch. I eq mostly flat with a slight bump in the low mids, and use roundwound strings. I think my tone is overly boomy though, and have even had bandmates comment negatively about it on occasion. Is this just a characteristic of the P-bass ( I kind of doubt it ) or is there something I should concentrate on playing wise to change the tone (play closer to the bridge, harder attack, etc). I'm looking for a crisper tone without losing my low end.
