I'm curious about this topic. Maybe we all can get new ideas from this. Preferably say the genre the group is. I'll start: In my spanish rock cover band, which is a genre I hardly recommend you NOT listen to, I play a very straightforward setup. A MIM fender P straight to a rumble 500. I play flats with a pick. The sound I get doesn't really matter too much, I mostly play eighteenth notes very fast. Pretty boring, but is by far the one that pays best. In my Reggie band I play a custom made jazz bass from the great, great MARUSZCZYK shop. Flats and a mute, groove for days. Same amp, no effects. One of the best bands I've been in, great musicians and I enjoy a lot the gigs, even if I dislike the genre quite a bit. In my funk band I play a Sandberg California, not sure the exact model. This one in particular has a great pickup combination: P+HH. Amazing sound with nickel wounds and a markbass head and cab. I use a envelope filter and a B:assmaster fuzz here for the solos and wow. Best tome that has come from me ever. I also play in a jam band that plays very ocasionally, both jazz and blues. For the blues I dig my Rick 4003s with the ampeg portaflex, which I can use here for the relatively moderate volumen. For jazz I would play the upright, but is just a pain to carry, so fretless squier jazz bass is usually my choice here, digging that Jaco look. Anyway, what are you using?
