    I use a stick, a washtub and a piece of rope for my super-growly, snarly punch.

    Edit: a hickory stick, they have growlier lower mids.

    Warwick, or a stringray.

    But I too, use the washtub for my pile drivingly heavy songs. Ditto on the hickory, I like using hemp rope for a nice deep bass boost too.

    And to the other guys: You play the bass hooked up to a tub and sticks?

    Warwick Thumb Bolt-On Thumb Bass is hands down the growliest bass you will find.

    None. At all.
    I've spoken to a number of pile drivers that regard Warwicks as the most pile-drivingly heavy sounding basses compared to other pile-drivingly heavy sounding basses.
