Which bass has a "Bigger" sound?!

    Looking to get either a Fender Mexican P bass or a Jazz Bass and wondering which has a better fuller sound. I recorded a lot of dub reggae music, so full, deep sound is crucial. Any opinions?

    Most would say the P. I'd say put flatwounds on either, turn down the tone control, and you'd have a pretty good dub machine.

    I'ma go ahead and say P-Bass.
  4. has always used Jazz Basses.
  5. Hmm, I think both would make great dub axes, as long as you turn down the tone (as Christopher said) and pluck near the base of the neck. On the J, I'd turn both pickups on full, or favor the neck a little.
