    I’m interested in a BTB845v for various reasons but won’t have an opportunity to play one. Haven’t seen too many reviews online and all of the YouTube clips seem to showcase as similar style of playing. All of the tones in these videos seem to focus on slapping tones and/or thin, almost nasal tones. I understand the “intention” of a bass such as this, but I’m wondering if this bass can also do smooth, deep, and warm tones as well. I won’t go as far as say “p-bass like”, but can it pull off a smooth walking bass line, deeper 60s type grooves, reggae dub...or just plain rock? Looking forward to your comments and and any audio/video examples would be great!

    Try these:

    Not the same bass, but the same pickups and probably the same preamp.
