    I think the the best bass for playing anying really really heavy on is the westone thunder a-1 bass it will cut through any lead guitar like a hot knife through butter and the action on it is really really quick. Dose any one think different.

    Note to oneself stop saying really
  2. The "best" metal bass does not exist. Personally, the best metal bass for me is not going to be the same bass for you, or for nearly anyone here on TB. It's all subjective and based on personal taste.

    Now if the question were "would a westone thuinder a-1 be a good metal bass?" you wouldn't be prone to get replies like mine. But since that wasn't the question... :rolleyes:

    So yes, I guess you could say I think differently.

    The best metal bass I ever saw was played by the bassist from the Scorpions in 1982.... and that is where it should have stayed... in 1982... along with metal music.
