    this is a bit of a noobish question but can anyone tell me how i get a real honky tone out of my basses and amp. :meh:

    i have a fender jazz 4 fretless and a fender jazz 5 fretted played through a roland cube 100 and even though i've tried my best i just can't seem to get close to the sound i want :crying: any clues?

    Hit it. As hard as you can.

    I think thats how you can get your bass to "honk"/"fart"/do rude things

    What do you mean by "honking"?
  7. I would assume you're referring to a bridge pickup honk?

    try boosting your mids alot. I remember an interview were Mike watt referred to his tone as honky, and he really jacks up the mids
