    Ya know, I seriously do wish I could get a DaisyRock daisy shaped bass. I'd rock that **** out! Guitars only tho :(

    After a Google I do see used ones!

    Spector has better growls, a lot of metal bassists use them (myself included)

    As far as playing fast, what helped me most was doing a number of exercises and keep playing faster and faster, but making sure it was clean. Fingers or pick?

    PRS. The one with the two P pickups, don't remember the model. Absolutely roars.

    P bass is a good suggestion, too- meat with definition.

    The most important thing, though, is that it feels good to you. A close second (or tied for first?) is whether you like the tone going through an amp set flat. After that, it's whether you like the looks/vibe/etc, if that matters to you. After that, the rest really doesn't matter.

    cannibal corpse, Behemoth, goatwhore, cattle decap, former cynic/portal, Satyricon, Protest the Hero, Enfold Darkness, Despised Icon, Arsis, between the buried and me, pantera, and porcupine tree all use spectors. there are probably more, but i would need to check.

    oh, and you can get the 4 string in 34' or 35' scale... the 35' is best for tuning to b. i play a 6 string spector and 5 string gary willis fretless in my death metal band. 2 completely different worlds but both are awesome for metal
     
  6. Why is it that people who play metal music can't figure what bass to use? I don't know that I've ever seen a "what bass do I use for polka?" on here. :D

    IMHO Warwicks with big ol' humbuckers do the trick...
     
  10. heard some stuff about ESP with EMGs
    as well as Shector (sp?) and BC Rich.
     
  11. Spectors can do it easily but you can do it with a Jbass as well. The Spector Performer is a good solid bass with ok EMGs. You can grab one for $350, drop a quality preamp in there and you're set for quite a while. I dropped a Delano Sonar 3 pre in the one on the left and that thing became a monster. Massive tone for around $500.

    Try out some Traben basses John Moyer Havoc, or a Chaos, im sure you can dial in a good metal tone.

    Dude, just play some basses. Alot of them. Then pick the one you like the best that you can afford. Somebody mentioned daisy rock. I think they were being facetious but it's probably as good a recommendation as any because with the endless selection of amps and effects there's bound to be a way to make it sound the way that you need it to.
