I am in the search for a great bass. On average I play in front of about 8,000 a week. Playing various styles of music in each venue. I am looking for a bass that can cover most styles of music. I am also looking for something that is unique. I hear great things about the Ritter basses. I am wondering if these basses, specificly the classic. Will this bass be a great canidate for what I am looking for. I do not have a chance to play one so if I do decide on a Ritter I will be purchasing one without being able to play it. Will this bass give me tones from traditional J style to Jaco to smooth R&B to rock? What american basses do these come close to as far as feel, sound, and playability? These dont have to be in one bass....meaning it can feel like "A" and sound like "B" and play like "C". Thanks in advance. The basses that I have played in the past are Zons and Elricks. I would like to hear from people who have played them and have had some experience with them.
