Dude has nice, New Metal sort of vibe to his playing.
Pretty cool. I've owned most of these basses except the last and I find this pretty consistent with what is shown in the video. I had a standard thumb NT , Cirrus Tigereye and a couple different Stingrays and currently have the NG3. The Cirrus was pretty versatile and polite sounding but a very good bass. The Thumb was nasal and tight which had a very specific appeal. Stingrays were always scooped and clangy to me. They felt good but I never dug the sound. The Dingwall NG-3 is very balanced and aggressive sounding with the Darkglass preamp. I love it because it has the hi-fi vibe of a cirrus but a bit more aggressive. I'm enamored but also it's my newest bass. My go to is a G&L L-2500 which does a little bit of all of these.
Nathan Navarro is a killer player, for sure.
What jumped out at me here is how unremarkable sounding the Stingray 5 is.
To me the NG3 sounded best overall, the LeFay has the best sounding neck pickup, and the Thumb sounds the best slapped. The other basses were just a bit vanilla.
Surprised myself - I liked the Cirrus best overall, Dingwall a close 2nd. I did like the Lefay with the drive though.
I was very surprised by the Peavey too, all around great sounding bass.
I actually dug overall tone of the Lefay best but then I saw the price which threw me off a bit... still a killer sounding bass.
