If you were to compare your bass to some kind of animal, what would it be?

    I use heavy gauge GHS boomers and the way I have my amp and pedals set up it gives me a deep, fat tone that I can only compare it to a whale fart. It's an awesome tone, in my very humble opinion.

    I'd say a bobcat someone spilled a bucket of paint over.

    The Ric and Geddy...


    ... don't be fooled... same breed of killer rabbit used in 'Monthy Python and The Holy Grail'...

    The Highway One...


    ... red panda... nothing fancy, just a cool entity, which sounds great when it growls...

    The Sadowsky MV4...


    ... sometimes, I'm even scared of the capable nature of this beast...

    (My Saga MB-10 build has a scorpion as it's mascot, but currently is not worth even being labeled as a mosquito...).

    My Streamer would be like a Mountain Lion. Very fast and aggressive.

    My CR5 fretless always feels kind of slithery when I play it. So, some kind of grey snake i guess?

    I'd compare my Spector NS4-cr to a wolf. It can put out some really aggressive growls, howl/sing beautifully and produce deep, low smooth tones as well as high-pitches ones. It can manage on it's own but functions better in a pack! ;)

    My basses sleep most of the day, so I guess thery are like cats.
    The Hondo is like a black cat that is fast, sleek, muscular, and with razor sharp claws.
    The SX is like a black cat that is fatter, slower, and doesn't always land on its feet. But it's cool cat, anyway.

    This one is obviously a platypus:
