    Four great bass players who know how to get "their" sound out of a bass!

    Don't take it for granted what you are hearing. Not many
    bass players can play straight from their "souls".

    All these guys are fantastic yet so different in their tone and approach. I have to say that I really covet Joe's tone the most. What a nice thick, chewy jazz tone he gets. Articulate yet fat!!

    Joe Dart is playing a passive MIM Fender j-bass with a Badass Bridge and Antiquity I or II pickups.

    Proof that you don't have to spend a million bucks on your gear to get quality.

    I also favor the tone of Joe's bass!

    Great players tend to have good tone because they have good technique. Practicing playing slowly, cleanly, and articulately will allow you to truly get your sound out of your bass or any bass.

    I agree 100%!

    I appreciate guys who display unbelievable speed, but the
    playing styles on the videos are the reason I chose to play bass.

    Since X-mas is near, I should ask Santa for a combination of their abilities! :D;)
