    anything you want to use it for? don't limit your basses to certian types of music, obviously some work a little better than others but using a bass that isnt "for" a certian style of music is what could potentially make your tone cool and unique, but that being said i owned the corvette 4 active and its a pretty versitile bass and i loved it, i just traded it in for a 5 string thumb which i love more.

    It's a nice bass for the money, plays good, sounds good. I don't think it's pigeonholed for any type of music. Good all round sound.

    I think it should be used in a Fusion/Yodeling situation. :eek:

    Yeah, I know what you are thinking..."should I drop tune..." :confused:

    On my Corvette i play the jazz and funk/fusion, but I can't get a nice rock-sound out of it. I have a SWR Workingman 15" combo and uses DR. Should that influence the sound in a jazz and funk/fusion way, and away from rock??

    I have a Corvette Standard that I string with SIT Silencers and play fingerstyle either through an Ashdown MAGC210 combo or an SWR Workingman's 12. I keep the preamp bypassed. And I can get tones for every genre of music from rock to jazz to funk. I can't get a super deep reggae tone but it's serviceable. In short, I think Corvette Standards can do anything.

    If you want a more razor edged modern rock/metal sound, then try a GK amp. I keep a GK Backline amp at my parents' house and I think my Warwick through it lacks warmth, but for a razor edged rock tone, it works.
