To me, that sounds like a slightly overdriven Precision. Gotta love that thump!

Exactly what I was thinking.

+1 to the two previous posters. The overdriven precision is basically the tool for the job when you want a big, downright dirty bass tone that sounds like you're bringing the wrath of Zeus down on your audience.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Fender jazz bass +EMG active pickups+EMG EXB circut. and overdrive that sucker! (not alot tho) that setup gets more bass then most basses with humbuckers! but seriously i think an amp does more for the "bass you can feel" part i think bass is more attack sound/tone.

if you want bass you can REALLY REALLY feel i would get a basson cab those things are beasts and are friggen amazeing!

Basically what he said; you could also get a 2x10 and 2x15 stack or a 4x10 and a 1x18

This setup sounds GREAT with a 5 string.

Alot of the big thump will come from a big powerful tube amp and something like an 8x10 cab.

A P bass through something like an SVT-2 and an 8x10 rig (the backline I used at my last gig, actually. Oh that was nice.) gives the sound you want. Nothing thunders like a P.

Buy both pickups. Rub icyhot on both of them. Sandwich your penis between them and walk to the nearest homeless shelter with your brand new icyhot penis sandwich.

Like I said, a 4x10 with a 1x18.


Really though, if you want people to feel your bass, you've got to get a stack that pushes a lot of air, but still has definition. If you have a 100W amp, that might feel strong in a garage, but you'd want something with like 400W at least to really kick people in the gut.


As many have said, a nice touch of overdrive will do you nicely as well, to get that "rough" tone.
