    I was wondering if there were strings or somthing that would give my bass a lower sound? :confused:
     
  2. What do you mean by 'lower sound'?

    If you mean less highs and more lows, just use dead strings that you've been playing on for a long time and don't have of that high end zing left in them.

    hehe, use dead strings would work i guess. But also the fatter the strings the more low end your going to get.

    And that would explain why my low B is so wimpy. :rolleyes:
     
  7. In fact adding a cab with a big speaker would make your low B sound better :rolleyes:

    That Banana you have there for some reason makes me feel like less of a man. :( Bigger string gauge = lower bass tones.
