I am in search of a certain sound. I want a 5 string bass that sounds very full on the D and G strings when popped. My Geddy Lee does this, while retaining that yummy 70's Jazz characteristics. I love the tone of a 70's Jazz. If I could get both of these sounds in one bass, I would be very happy. To finance this, I will have to sell something else. My five and six string basses all sound great. But with the exception of my Zon, they all sound very thin when popping the D, G, (and on the sixers) the C string. It gets lost in the mix. I have tried EQ. Maybe it is my strings? I love a lot of treble, so I use stainless steels. And most nickels I have played die very quickly due to my body chemistry. So, kind of scattershooting, but if any of you guys with tons of experience with different basses could help me out, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!
