a balloon bass
when I was in a death metal band my Ibanez Soundgear 300dx was great. The neck is real fast and narrow at the nut which was good for fast and complicated stuff. But, when I was playing it I always wanted a Spector.
any bass with low action... i've seen people use everything from fretless zons to fender j's to warwicks.
Nothing with those damned EMG-HZ pups. They mud up so bad at high speeds and lower frequencies.
I'd recommend an Ibanez BTB or Peavey Cirrus. You'll probably want an active bass as much as I hate to say it. More definition in your tone that way, generally. One of my buddies has a Conklin 7 string and plays sorta progressive bordering on death metal and it sounds pretty awesome too.
It's not the basses fault that you can't play what you want. It's your fault.
Come on, everybody knows you can't play polka on electric bass! You cold sorta cheat on upright, but REAL polka can only be played on tuba. You really didn't know that?
I would think the G&L SB2 would work pretty well.
That's it! That bass just screams Death Metal. Yep, that's the one you should get.
The Fernandes Tremor 5
or if you can't afford that, try this
Most solid body basses will work fine. My vote is Rickenbacker.
Yeah, but a REAL bass player full of hot air could do a passable job.
No mention of Warwick yet,....I vote any of the German made Warwicks.
Trabens eat metal.
This almost made me spit out my coffee!!!
when I'm in the mood for metal music, I use any of my basses, but when I have to "LOOK the part" I grab this one
spend $$$ on a new rig...
defintely fingers i cant play metal with a pick for ****
