    Default bass stuff

    hey...bass and uke, yeah!
    i am a bass player of around 20 years and have recently gotten the uke bug.

    not a bad set up you have there. you should def get yourself a fender p or j bass. the funk machines...and you'll need more than 45 watts if you want to jam with a full band. i have an Ashdown 500. killer amp with tube preamp and solid state power amp. i like the Eden stuff too. nice warm funky sound.

    have fun jammin'!!...remember, it's all about the groove!

    i have several basses, but my main bass nowadays is a fender zone. (p-bass replacement). I use round wound strings. 45-100 i believe. this bass is awesome, i highly recommend it for funk and slap.. the tone is unbelievable, i had to tweak the action a bit and replace the pickup, but after that, it became such a solid sounding bass. up there with the american jazz imo.

    i'm still waiting for a '72 fender jazz vintage to fall into my lap... but alas, i'm still waiting. hehe

    Edit: you can hear the bass i use on aldrines video 'if i aint got you'. Better if you have speakers that can push bass though. Then you can hear the true tone.

    I wouldn't call myself a bass player, but I had my friend's Fender P-Bass with flatwounds for a while. Nice fat round tone.

    My friend just got a Lakland Decade. It is hands down the coolest bass I have gotten to play.

    His Zon was pretty sweet too, but he sold it.

    I got a setup that goes beyond my talent, lol.

    MusicMan Stingray 4 in Honeyburst with Clear pickguard, maple fretboard
    Ernie Ball Strings 95-45
    18' Monster Cables
    SansAmp RBI Pre-Amp
    QSC PLX-3002 Power Amp
    Aguilar GS-112
    Crate BT-25 Combo

    I need a different pre because it's too bright for the SR's already bright tone. I end up cutting a bunch of highs where I shouldn't.

    As for the Crate, I wish I had found it sooner. This little bugger is deceptively loud and has a built-in tuner, octaver, and fuzz/distortion. It's amazing for the price you pay.
