Well, what do you all think?
I 2nd the P-bass, but ya gotta have flats for the right thump.
yeah, the p-bass has that classic thump. You mean flatwound strings? With a pick? Can you do that?
Its quite doable, why not?
i don't know, i allways just thought of flatwounds as a finger-style thing. Although i was thinking about putting some on my Danelectro shortscale.
I played a Gibson Ripper(which is prety P-ish) and it wasnt exaclty great, I think flats sound better when you use your fingers, Fretted bass or not, IMO.
Paul McCartney signature Hofner. Listen to ANY McCartney classic.
too bad i don't have that much money. I'd rather get a full scale anyways. I do like short scales, but I allready have a Dano one and thats enough for now seeing as how i'm not exactly rich.
I always thought using a thick pick adds to the thumpiness. Like using a 2.0mm pick definitely adds some thump.
it does, but i want MORE thump!
Then go to more BASS!!!! you might have to save up a little. Search for a used Kubicki if you can find one, buy it, when played with a pick those things are ridiculous!!!
Thunderbird with a pick.
+1 Oh, and add an Orange head to the mix.
Except for his wings period and the Later Beatles tracks such as the ones from Rubber soul and Sgt Pepper where he happily "Clanks" along on his Rickenbacker.
"Band on the run" Is a good example of the powerfull tone of his 4001s
P bass with the treb turned down a little
here is my new thump 30"scale machine!
Hands Down a P-Bass with flats.
I guess I'll look into a decent Fender P then. Thanks all!
hey how do Jazz basses do with a pick? Are they real thumpy or growly or what?
