oh yeah, I've just recently joined a ska band, and we had our first practice yesterday. I brought along my fender jazz, and my warwick pro fet stack (410 cab). I've sort of been noodling around, and haven't been able to find any sound that excited me, but I managed to pull something off I've been looking for for months, I used both pickups, and boosted both high and low on the EQ, and I got a sound (even with my worn out d'addario medium guage nickel plated strings) that was very clanky, perfect for slapping, but sounded very impressive when picking as well (this was after all the ska stuff was practiced, and we were just noodling around, and got some heavier, funkier, and mellower stuff too), it sounded absolutely tremendous when playing with fingers as well, with plenty of twang, attack, and girth the sound kept everybody in the groove, and the guitarist and I, there are no horns, were jumping, it was terrific . The midrange scoop seems to sound a million times better than I thought, and I think that's the sound I'll use live. just to ask, do you think that sound would go with ska?
