Do you prefer plastic basses or wood basses?
Yeah me too =)
Another vote for wood.
seriously, who would vote for a plastic bass???
A vote for plastic.
Romantic ignorance claims yet another victim...
In deference to any Status etc. fans out there, you might want to add graphite to the poll... Just a suggestion.
I love all basses regardless of their race, colour or body material
My bass is made of luthite.
I don't like the tone much. The low end sounds artificial, and it is really mid-rangey. Can get some decent punch, though, and the high end sounds good. Depends on what you like, I guess.
All hail Wood, i used to have a luthite bass, not a good sound at all, the only thing good about it was the neck, thats the only thing, it was heavy too
im partial to paper basses myself- the are disposable and biodegradable and everyone knows how importatnt our ecology is.
wait, paper would be wood, wouldnt it??
here speaks a great master!
The only plastic basses I can think of are luthite, and the clear acrylic basses.
Does anyone know of any other plastics used as the body material for basses?
Have you tried those new basses made out of kleenex? For an extra $.50, you can get USED kleenex, which adds thickness to the bottom end and helps remove that nasty nasal midrange.
i've never played a plastic bass.
I rather play a bass made of CARROTS than a plastic bass.........
That´s why I play wood, the sound of nature
Enlighten me, please. I have never heard of a plastic bass. I have seen basses made out of graphite, luthite, lucite, and some other sundry materials, but never plain old plastic.
Wood is nicer, but vastly over-rated to the over all performance of an electric instrument. Ned Steinberger already demonstrated that with his basses.
I beg to differ- iI believe wood to be paramount in the makeup of an instrument's sound- I've had this discussion before, and with all due respect and being totally one man's oipinion- I thought those Steinbergers sounded extremely sterile and depthless ( is that a word?) I tried one mid 80s when Sting was playing one and took it right back to the store. But that's just me...now, the Steinberger electric uprights are SWEEET!!
by the way, I have to look, but , what are the Basslab basses made of again?
