The other night I got dragged to some type of reggae show. I dug the bassist however, who was using a nice Modulus. I noticed that he used and extremely light attack and got some great tone- for that type of music anyway. However, as I paid more attention... when he did use a medium attack, it totally caused the amp to clip. I am thinking the way he ran his setup was maxed out on the amp to bring out the finer dynamics of his fingerstyle. On the other hand, I play progressive metal and use a totally different attacking style. I do some intense and aggressive slapping on the low-b string and also play a lot of machine-gun rhythms. I use a heavier touch for the heavier parts of my music, and also some compression. My rig is setup to give me an explosive punchy sound with smooth and rich highs for slapping, and low mid growl for fingerstyle. When I play light, I dont get the same type of dynamics as Reggae Master, due to how I am setup. So there is a play between playing style and setup. My questions are- How light/heavy do you attack? How is your rig set up (what are you trying to accentuate)? What style of music are you playing?
