Please vote and let us reflect on the bass zeitgeist of recent times
I’ve seen a lot of bassists wearing make nurse shoes lately.
Everybody went batspit crazy.
Last few years? C'mon, man. 2020 was a disaster.
Yeah, sorry to give you static, but my memory of the last few abysmal years will not have anything bass-related in it.
Kinda reminds me of the line, “But other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?”
I’m not trendy.
In the realm of the whole bass playing world, none of those is anything but an unnoticed blip.
Continued reduction of amp and cab weight.
For me it would be the popularity of short scale basses though the new Squier logo is up there too
Darkglass. None of it does it for me, but I totally get it.
The obsession with amp, cab and bass weight.
Fanned frets and Darkglass dirt pedals for sure, though fanned frets have been around for decades.
Of those choices, the new Squier logo was the only thing I was aware of. To suggest that I even cared about it in the slightest would be an enormous stretch.
nothing is really coming to mind.
i dislike multiscale basses, but i disliked multiscale guitars years before
have yet to knowingly hear the darkglass sound
was there a headless revival? i bought my headless basses more than 5 years ago
i own squiers, new and old, and didn't even notice the change in logo LOL
i have chased lighter cabs and amps since i was injured in 2008, so to me, it's nothing new
Darkglass is more popular with metal and hard rock enthusiasts, and is huge in djent. And headless has had a little resurgence thanks to frequent flying getting some folks to downsize, but the heyday was in the 80s.
well, i like very hard metal and djent, so maybe i've heard it and didn't know. thanks!
ah, the 80s...
Med scale/short scale basses seems to be popular nowadays since they can produce solid(even more punchy and bass) tone to gig with. I believe some will become main basses like mines.
I was long since there already..
Nolly Getgood would be the prime example of what the Darkglass stuff gets up to, as well as fanned fret basses. Everyone tries to copy the sound he gets, and metal spins its wheels for another decade because everyone sounds almost identical.
