at home, in your living room, just playing around, or practicing your slap/soloing....What sounds do you dislike? Would youlike the nicewarm tone of a Lakland an aggressive mean tone of a musicman the thump of a P with flats? Basically, no band, just you? Personally my bass needs roundwounds, I love a bright tone. Almost like a Stu Hamm tone. Gotta have some warmth in there too.
