    I know this is a subjective question, but I'll ask it anyways.

    What kind of sounds would you get from a mahoghany bodied bass with bubinga top and bottom caps, with a neck through body neck that is 5 piece maple with mahoghany stringers - rosewood fretboard?
     
  2. it will sound "punchy, solid well defined low end sparkly highs and a slightly pronounced mid-hump®"


    SHAZAM!!!

    It will sound mellow with round solid low end with a nice balanced top end and a slightly aggressive mid range resonance®.

    If it were strung with a high C would that string sound brittle or more full?
     
  5. that would REDUCE the mid-hump® ...and believe me, you don't want that!

    Hmmm - well that might present a problem....

    what would that c-string end up sounding like?
     
  7. non-mid-hump®-like.

    It will display a fundamental at 130.813 Hz, with integer-multiple overtones, offset with slight inharmonicity due to a non-linear frequency-dependent stiffness characteristic.
     
  9. are you threatening me? :D

    probably poly - though what would be the difference in terms of sound?

    BTW - someone removed the TP for my bunghole and franky I'm vaguely annoyed.

    If wilser can trademark the mid-h*mp thing, I'm going to patent A440. Then I'll charge $75 to license it.


    Think Mr. N can help? :bag:
