One of my co-workers came up to me and asked, "do you ever get complaints on the tone of basses that the customer asked you to play in the store after they take it home and play it themselves?" (I work at a music store in case you haven't picked up on that). I said, "What are you talking about?" He clarified, "You have great tone in your fingers, every bass you play sounds amazing no matter what the price." On most occasions the customer will eventually play it themselves in the store and make up their mind based on that, but I could see where he was going with his question. I guess I never thought of it that way, but I did start to notice that any bass I play sounds like me. My EBMM Stingray sounds like an EBMM, but definitley has my attack, dynamics and character that nobody else can duplicate, so when I switch from that to my fretless Warrior it still sounds like me. I was wondering if you guys have had this epifani yet? No matter what bass I play, it still sounds like me. This is not to toot my own horn. I just think it's very cool that we each have our own tone. It's all in the fingers.
