Plastic, bone, brass - does it have that much effect? Are there 'grounding' issues with brass?
Any sonic effect will be on open strings only, and even if the nut is brass, it wou't be electrically connected to anything.
however, something like a graphtech nut will make bending easier, but sonically it will only effect the open string
My main bass came with a graphite nut over 20 years ago. It's still perfect -- not worn out. The biggest advantage of graphite to me is that it never binds. All other materials that I have used bind occasionally when I tune -- graphite never does this. As a result, I think the bass tunes better and stays in tune better (it never "sproings" back).
As far as tone goes, graphite sounds as good as the other premium materials to me.
