Whenever I ask or talk about P-basses with someone there like its cuts through the mix well. What? I mean I guess it can but why not a Jazz bass? I see a lot of people who use P-basses and I usually ask them why and they either say what previously was said or they don't know.

What is your opinion?

I feel that any bass can cut through the mix if you EQ it right.

While this statement is kinda racist and straightforward, it does have many FACTS to back it up lolz.

mine cuts through pretty well, but like the other guy said, it's all about EQ.

But yeah, P-basses are generally more punchy and bassy while J-basses have more treble, midrange, and grindy-ness. But I can make either one do any job I want. It's just a matter of personal taste. I honestly love both. My American P is a fantastic instrument, as are my two Mexican J's.

At my last gig, the guy before us was playing a P-Bass, and it filled the whole bloody room. His tone was incredible. It was almost half as good as mine.

And mountaindew88, I take it my EQ ideas worked?

So I know you have both a Jazz and a P bass. Which do you prefer?

Feeling humble today eh?

And yes Ps do cut through the mix. Though if your EQ is crap then no bass will cut through.

Half? You're losing your touch

If you EQ the bass right, a P-Bass can cut through easily. Fitzy did a big thing on EQing, very good to read. I'll be damned if I can remember which thread it was in though...

Narcotics I believe...
