YEah, I'm really curious... I hope I don't disturb with this poll
No Sadowsky as a choice? I'd put that as tops, either jazz or PJ model.
Of those above in the poll it would be a tie between Fender and Alembic.
Ummm.... I pick number 8: Any bass that Bill Dickens or Vic Wooten picks up. That's probably the best bass for slap
Sorry! I didn't consider all the high end Jazz models... and I didn't consider Fodera, Sei, Wal and Zon!
Either a Cirrus, or a Brian Moore
...and F Bass!
...especially when he's the slapper!
Once you've slapped on a Flea bass, the sound and fleel is unmatchable.
Without a doubt, the EB-0
I like slapping around:
1. Billy Bass
2. Big Mouth
3. Fresh water over 5 pounds
I will agree with the Cirrus recommendation. In spite of the narrow spacing, I am starting to get it down. The slap tone on my 6 absolutely kills!!! A Warwick or a Stingray(2 respected slappers) only wish they had a slap tone like this!!!
Couldnt agree more. of course in the Fender vein, but its the Sadowsky preamp that makes all the diff. thunderous bottom with that pristine top end. Some peeps say that Skee's pre's allow too much treble to be dialed in, but slappers crave that.
i say spectors
Sorry guys, I have to say MTD!!!
Kubicki X-Factor ...
two words. ****ing A!
It is imposable to slap on my P-bass My cheep ass peavey has good quite a good, bright slap sound (for a passive)
For a slap bass with serious thump, it's hard to beat the new Fender FMT Jazz. Meatiest slap I've heard in years.
Otherwise, in the super Jazz camp I'd give the nod to F Bass. Non-Jazz category I'd go with MTD or Brubaker, two excellent but different sounding slap monsters.
Still, a good FMT (I've seen some that were so-so) is a beautiful thing. Try it.
Hey Brad, on your song LA Groove, which bass did u slap with???
