  1. hi guys!
    first, i've got a silly question about a bass sound. i know a lot of bass players dislike those questions, but i dare to ask...
    i've put up a sound file:

    does anyone know how i can get a sound like that? i play a yamaha sbv - sounds like a fender jazz bass.
    what do i need? a tube amp? what about highs and middles and stuff like that?
    i'd be really glad if someone could give my some tips. - you might have noticed, i'm not the best at bass - technical - stuff :(

    now, i've got another question... does anyone know this trace elliot bass amp? and could give me some information like watts, ohms or something?

  2. I vote P bass style instrument or pick ups for the tone you want. Sounds like the bassist is using a pick as well.

    That's a series 6 Trace. I'm not too sure about how many watts it is. You can tell by looking at the back pannel. It should by fit for 4 or 8 ohms automatically, unless it's sterio.
    I just bought myself a V4 all tube Trace Elliot amp today and it's awesome!
    thought I would share that with you :D
