What kind of sound do you prefer over all? I like a warm modern sound or a warm vintage sound.
I prefer a good tone.
Too tough to decide. It depends on what the music is.
Isn't this kind of biased towards people who like it warm? I'd describe my preferred sound as "bright," not "cold and steely." There's a difference. I will admit that "warm and modern" does sound nice, though. If this thread is really about modern v. vintage tones, then, well, yeah...
warm modern, since i play modern music.
Ric (I'm not too sure where that goes). My tone isn't the usual clanky Ric tone everyone associates with it, it's more like a Jazz bass on PCP with more mids and a solid bottom.
"Rocky and Earthy"
....It sounds warm and thumpy when picked soft, with just a small hint of brightness in the initial attack......a medium attack gives more brightness and midrange presence....and a hard, all-out attack produces harsh metallic grind...bassically the sound of a Rick, or other bright bass fed through a Mesa tube amp that's just starting to break up......
It's brighter than the Ampeg sound, but definately not clean and sterile by any means...
It depends on what music you are playing of course, but ive come to generally favor the warm, organic, passive fender-type tone. In my opinion it doesnt get any better than a classic Precision or Jazz through an overdriven tube amp.
Warm and Vintage, No tone mudbroom.
White Rabbit has my favorite bass tone.
Warm! Warm! Warm!
I thought I knew what kind of tone I had untill I saw that it wasnt one of the options in the poll and therefore must not exist.
I tried not to make it difficult. So I included three of the most obvious.
Many, many tones can be lumped into warm vintage, and warm modern of course. Vote as close to one of these as possible.
I like it warm vintage, but I can never get that tone >> I seem to be stuck with some sort of... Tone that's.. Okay nevermind. Geez.
Paul D'amour, Tool's Undertow Album on the song Intolerence.
(Mmmmmm, Overdriven Rickenbacker)
+1 on that...he's the reason I bought a Rick in the first place..His Stingray wasn't too shabby in "Prison Sex" too..
Paul D' Amour and Billy Gould had the ultimate tone on both their band's early albums! "The tone in my head"
Voted for both warms and mudbroom.
don't like my bass with treble unless it's fuzzzzzzzzed.
if I have my fuzz on and my wah fwd, and I play with a pick I can almost break glass
