    don't ever underestimate the power of the passive jazz bass electronic.
    sound tips for beginner.
  2. I really do like the passive Jazz bass. I'd like to add an active bass at some point, but I have found the passive Jazz to be a pretty flexible instrument. You can get some pretty bright, forward sounds or darker, thicker sounds, and a fair amount in between. I've only had a Jazz bass for a little while, but I discovered a lot of those tones myself, just playing around.

    I'm probably putting myself on blast, but I have been playing for about two years and am just NOW getting used to my volume/tone settings after watching this video. Those sound tips were great, and I feel like an idiot...

    after many years playing a jazz bass this vid was a real mind opener for me.

    It has changed my whole approach to playing bass.
