    I'm trying to emulate the bass sound from David Karnes of New Soul Cowboys...

    on a lot of his songs, when he goes high, he's got a distinctive growl/definition to the notes...

    but still low end bump.

    can anybody give me some ideas of where I'd start to get that kind of sound?

    I grow organic carrots and they are not for sale
    A 5 string bass with a 3 band preamp, boost mids and lows.

    Aside form gear, plucking nearer the bridge will give you less fundamental and more overtones, thus more "mids"

    What strings does he use? Might be a factor...
