    actually i can hear these growl when the bass is unplugged too.... does the growl comes from the string touching the fretboard?

    Unless it's fretless, the string doesn't touch the fretboard.

    actuelly i can hear the growl while playong in the P pickup....

    so what is exactly the growl? maybe "growl" is no the right word....

    i can aprreciate it when i make strong presion with my left hand....

    Alot is in the fingers and where you play (More towards the bridge). Also, low mids are handy on the EQ side of things.

    I can get some real nice growl out of a MM Sterling on any string, just practice using your fingers.

    Good luck!

    *shrug* mine usually growls most on the lower strings
    Solo the bridge pickup and play near the bridge, if you want crazy growl
     
  9. Where is the fretboard on a fretless bass?

    I think that the "GROWL" you are mentioning can be worded more into a "wail" or "bellow". The bassist, Ryan Martini from Mudvayne made it so i HAD TO GET A WARWICK. The sounds he gets from his are awesome. It sounds like the wood is talking and the bass is just bellowing... I love the higher strings and because of that bass, I actually begun to use strings other than the E and A strings. I got the cheaper Thumb Bolt On because the Neck through was NOT in my price range.
    The sound of a warwick is truely magnificent... I could weap ever since i sold mine... :crying:
