Ok so i've been trying some gear, trying to have opinions on here but it's really hard to know for sure if everybody has the same idea of sound characteristics. Therefore, instead of giving amps exemples, i'll list the bassists on albums so that everyone can relate to the same sound. In that train of thought, my definition of a cold sound would be exemples like: Justin Chancellor's tone on Lateralus Jonas Hellborg's tone on E Geddy Lee's tone overall Flea's tone overall At the opposite, my definition of a warm tone would be: Pino Palladino's tone with John Mayer Tony Levin's tone overall but mostly with Sarah McLauchlin James Jamerson's tone The amps I tried I thought were giving me a cold sound were: GK RB1001: Good punchy tone but can't dial out the nagging cold clanky mids. Genz Benz GBE750: Nothing but annoying clanky mids Anything SWR Amps I tried that were warm but not 100 satisfactory were: Eden WT550: Punchy and loud but is either too thin or too boomy and sounds sterile. Ampeg SVT-4 Pro: Mud mud mud, and more mud, oh and unreliable, then some more mud Mesa M-Pulse 600: Boomy, unruly with phaser sounding like mids Ashdown ABM 500: Very close but unreliable Aguilar DB750: Almost perfect but too heavy after a while and growing annoyed with the mid-grinding-farting tube sound. My main axe is a MM Stingray 5. I'm looking to achieve a warm tone that would be between Pino's and Tony's. Kind of like Pino's one but with a bit more definition and punch. What do you guys suggest that could finally satisfy me?
