May be a completely pointless, question, but can anyone recommend a bass which has the sort of clanky trebley tone (similar to RKL, if anyone knows :P), whilst still having the sort of kick in the ribs bassiness?

I know that it may not really be possible.. but oh well thought id ask

A Stingray might do this if you set up the EQ right

well i can thinkl of two ways of doing this:

1. just scoop out your mids on your amp.
2. bi-amp with one amp providing the bass and one amp giving you your treble.

I think the bassy thump he's talking about is the midrange. Most clanky treble stuff is treble zing on top of low bass boom--scooped mids stuff.

A jazz bass with the right pups can do both TS, but not at the same time. You can't have your cake and eat it too here.

the problems with these methods are:

1. If you cut your mids no one will be able to hear you, making your well sculted tone a complete waste of time.

2. this is really, REALLY expensive.

The tone you're describing sounds exactly like Steve Harris' who uses, and pretty much always has used, a Fender Precision bass.

favor trebly treble and low mids.

EQ pedal. the low mids will carry you in the mix, especially if you add a sweet distortion.

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Schecter or Warwick. I play a Schecter, and always cut through the mix. I boost my mids and bass, favor the bridge pickup a bit, and boost treble on the amp.

the bass doesn't matter, you can cut through with a p bass, a jazz bass, a rick 4003, a stingray, a warwick streamer, a pedula rapture, a ritter royal blue halberd, anything. there isn't a single bass guitar in the world that will never ever ever cut through the mix. it comes down to your EQing on your amp.

my jazz bass wouldn't cut through the mix when i ran it through a fender rumble 100 1x15 but it cut through just fine when i run it through a gorilla gb30 1x8. it's about the tonal properties of the amp
