    hey ya'll. i am kinda new to playin bass, i have been playin for about a year now, and i want to get a new bass. right now i have a dean 4 string bass, but it has a really dead sound to it, and i really want to get something a little more alive but something that still has a good look to it. i also want something with a good slap and pop sound to it. anyone have any ideas?

    Fender Jazz Bass?

    (maybe the Dean sounds dead because the strings are dead?)

    My thoughts exactly. I would recommend the aforementioned Fender Jazz, Yamaha BB series, or a Godin. New strings cost less.

  5. Hey, before you spend the money on a new bass, try a new string brand...........then if that fails you, try new pups!

    If that fails to livin' things up, then purchase a Fender Jazz bass!

    But make sure you get a black Fender Jazz. They sound brighter. ;)
