this is not one of those help me pick a bass things, well sorta. I must say i have little to zero experience in the studio. Alot of these bands i hear playing have such a clean bass sound. IS this because of the mixing or the bass they use. if its the bass then i would sure as hell like to know.The sound is so clear, no metal stwand from the string with no distortion what so ever. I often read people comenting on fenders for recording. I dont kno anything about fenders (i am a Warwikc man). I guess the percision standard has a clear sound from what i have read. I am sorry of i sound like a n00b (though i am) i am a very curious fellow who doesnt feel embarresed asking dumb questions.
