well? i voted for mm stingray. if you put other, put which and why.
A Ricky 4001 (I don't know if a 4003 sounds the same).
Why? If the bassist is using certain settings and roundwounds, a Rickenbacker just cannot be mistaken for anything else.
Another vote for the Rickebacker 4001/4003 - even though they have a lot of range, their sound is unmistakable. You can always tell when someone's playing a Rick.
I've played a bass with a dobro resonator. I think that has a pretty unique tone.
My vote was for the Stingray. Especially when picked, they sound like nothing else.
Rickenbacker, Rickenbacker, Rickenbacker.
I also think a Modulus Quantum has a very distinct tone.
I would have to say stingray... Can't mistake that at all.. Fender I will have to disagree with.... I love fender but I am not so sure that there tone is unmistakable...
oh yeah on another note. Last night I played a gig with two other bands... Myself playing on my stingray5 and another dude playing his stingray 4. His bass sounded excellent. the other band had a bass player who had a cheap stingray copy.... It hardly cut through the mix and didn't even sound like a stingray...... I was dissappointed... he wasn't that good either... sorry.. just a random note
I said Musicman because it has that tone that sounds like nothing else. I downloaded a live version of Carousel by Blink-182 and you can tell that Mark Hoppus is playing a stingray in that song by the way the bass sounds.
I am not familiar with Rickenbackers, but Im sure they have a very distinct sound as well.
I would say a RIC, has anyone else said that?
I'd have to say a P bass palyed with a pick. Every punk CD I've heard has this setup (give or take a few guys) and it always sounds VERY similar.
i'm surprised no one has said alembic yet, i mean i know that they're extremely versitile but no matter what they're gonna sound like an alembic.
Warwick has very distinct tone..
My vote goes to Rickenbacker...
I LOVE RIC basses.
1. Warwicks (especially Thumbs)
And of course, mine.
