Last friday, in a local shop, I tried for the first time a fretless bass (with fretlines). It was a 4 string BassCollection,a japan brand that doesn't seem to be known in the US and it was the only fretless available in the shop at the time. It's a good brand (my 5 fretted is originaly a BassCollection). To give you an idea of the price range, it cost 20% more than a MIM Jazz Bass, here in France. Beyond the pleasure to find that playing a fretless is not as hard as I thought (but still difficult ), I was surprised that only the D string produced a "MWAH" sound when played. The other strings sounded "fretless style", that's all. I was considering buying it but find myself confused about the lack of "MWAH". Is is common in this price range ? Do I have to buy a more expensive bass to get a good sound ? Or is it just that this bass was not good ?
