Greetings everyone, I'm new to this forum. I'm a longtime rock/metal bassist who has recently taken an interest in funk/motown styles. I have 2 Five stings (just sold the third), but I'm looking to pick up a 4 string to play around with slappin' and smooth jazz styles. For the cost, I had pretty much narrowed my search down to a Warwick Pro series Thumb but found a listing for a Bongo 4 at the same price, and I've always found the bongo to be an intriguing instrument. Any recommendations? Obviously if money were no issue, I'd go for a German Thumb, but I'm on a budget, and I have found both of these used in great condition for about the same price. Just looking for some other thoughts on these instruments Thanks in advance.
