I play out a time or two a month in a ska/punk band. If youre not familiar with the genre, the bass very heavily drives the sound. Think reggae, but mixed with swing and get your tone way up and out of the mud. I've been pretty heavily complimented by other musicians on my tone. But I kind of use of a Hodge podge of basses live depending on venue and my mood. I sometime will take out my jazz, but I generally use my EBMM sterling (my personal preffered bass) or I play a Pbass that I slapped a geddy Lee neck on. Pretty different sounds, and of course I have a different EQ for both. Does anyone else do stuff like this? Is this all carrots? Edited for awful grammar supplied by spell check!
