Ah, making uneducated opinions and then getting shot down. This must be how everyone else feels when I'm around. But seriously, interesting.
Two weeks exactly? As in the 23rd?
If so, I'll see you there (maybe)
You may have heard of a little band called Opeth. They say STFU.
The fact is, jazz basses (and apparently the Marcus Miller sig) have found a home in metal, as they have a very cutting tone, with plently of bass.
I'd play a Bass version of the Wangcaster if it has the perfect tone and feel for me. Looks should never be a deciding feature (unless they are truely terrible, which a jazz bass isn't). They certainly shouldn't be a huge posititve to a bass. If a bass sounds and feels great, looks should either be an added bonus (if you like them) ora nuisance (if you don't).
In the LoMenzo Hyper Drive, a band of frequencies within the midrange of the bass signal is filtered out and the distortion effect is added only to this band. The filtered frequencies can be ‘tuned’ to the precise range that gives the optimum effect. The degree of distortion available is variable from a subtle break up to huge overdrive, enabling a new range of extreme effects for bass to be created. The distortion effect can then be mixed with the original dry bass signal to maintain a powerful, full-bodied bass tone with distortion overtones.
i have owned Analog SS, Digital SS, and tube
and ill state it as a fact Digital amps have the worst tone in comparison to all
its not real tone its digital jesus christ
take for example the line 6 guitars...your not getting a signal from a guitar, pickups etc. its all digital
yes i can see the advantage of having 100s of amp models at your fingertips, but its all digital just like how digital keyboards can emulate violins organs etc. your line six is emulating marshalls, fenders, etc.
the vetta might be a good amp if your comparing to other digital amps, or really crappy analog SS or extremely crappy tube amps,
but compared to any good tube amps/Analog SS its total crap
and if digital is so great why'd line 6 decide to put tubes in their spider amps????
I said that
So it is really trebly and sharp?
I love how my JBass is low and soft. It kind of has a 'thumping' feel... except for when I turn the volume all the way up on my amp and it has a 'stampede of elephants' feel.
Whereas the JBass kind of like the ocean (strong yet fluid), the Bongo would be the desert (inhospitable and sharp).
I bought a head and cab because I like to be able to change my mind, this way, if I'm not happy with my cabinet or find another one I like better, I can go get the new one and swap it for the old one without having the cabinet still hanging off the head like in a combo.
If you find a combo with speakers that you like and you are perfectly happy with though, they are just as good as a head/cab setup.
Oh yeah also, combos are heavier as they are all in on box, head/cab setups are easier to carry in that respect (but still not light!).
i was under the impression that Gallien Krueger weren't any good, is this true?
i want to get a quality amp
Yep. It also, like on a vacuum cleaner, stops the sucking.
What bass DOESN'T sound like that when slapping? At all? Especially a $4000 setup? And notice he even complains about the stock bridge and balance issues? And notice he never actually plays normal fingerstyle with anything other than a pickup LOCATED RIGHT AT THE BRIDGE!?
EDIT: Same bass, pre-refinish. Notice the totally **** tone.
Hey now, the POD is a wonderful piece of equipment.
The Lowdown combos are alright, but no great shakes. As an amp, it's fine, but on the whole, I wouldn't spend money on it. I'd just get a good amp and effects I'd actually use.
so would the speaker thing work until i get near 350 for an amp?
My view is that certain things have certain roles. Effects pedals add effects, amps amplify. Mix the two and issues arise.
Line 6 is notorious for providing subpar equipment (excluding their fantastic effects pedals). The load everything they do with effects, when it would serve you much better to purchase an amp purely dedicated to amplifying.
On the Boss ODB-3. I just bought one of those and like it quite well. (To be honest, I like enough that I am surprised the neighbors haven't started to complain..). I have started to play a bit of punk and alternative (and some T-Rex) on bass and it works well for me.
I've never been huge into GK. I've tried a few out and they're all very, bleh.
