its kinda hard to describe, i guess that "wet" rumble with a bit of snap to it?
if that makes any sense
listen to a warwick thumb, and you will know the definition of growl.
I'd say growl is lower midrange boost for me, between 300Hz and 450Hz. With good eq, most basses can growl (most... not all)
With EMG pups.
Jazz bass when you're really digging in
Yes, Jazz bass. Maybe with midrange up and digging in.
My Kinal in the lower registers with the bridge pickup favored slightly and the coil tap set to parallel, low mids (250Hz) boosted slightly.
To me, the bass sound coming out of Charles Meeks Sting Ray on most any Chuick Mangione album
I figured it was a lower midrange boost ... you know....light distortion?
Mids. Like Warwicks, except the opposite.
Warwick thumb, like stated before...they embody the famous growl warwick is known for
+1. Still kinda working on mine....
something to do with more bridge pickup.
Is anyone else growing tired of the word "growl" ?
a GK rig.
Warwicks do not define growl. They have a particular growl they are famous for (mostly the Thumb) but growl, as stated, is a biting, mid-rangey sound, usually produced when the neck pickup is favored and especially present in quality basses that have pickups closer to the bridge (as in a J-Bass, StingRay, Smith, Laklands, and thousand others.)
It's also those peaky notes that you get when you dig in, again, with a mid-range characteristic.
And I also think the word is widely misused, and overused. That said, I love a bass with good growl.
