    NBD: Purple Ash Forest

    Nice! if that turns out to be all that's wrong with it, it's a great score! Even if you have to replace some parts, it's still really good I guess :) Wish you luck! btw: When you get it to work, I would love to hear a little demo of what it sounds like!

    NBD: Purple Ash Forest

    NOW I can see them! That's a really nice looking bass! :) I guess the electronics problem should be fairly easy to sort out. The worst you might have to do is kick out everything and give it new electronics but the fix is probably easier than that I'd guess. There is actually realtively few body...

    NBD: Purple Ash Forest

    None of the pics work for me but I would love to have a look since that is one of the body shapes I also really really like for basses! :)

    How do you approach writing bass parts for downtuned and extended range guitars?

    One thing I generally try to do when writing bass if the guitar and drum tracks already exist: I try to be the link between guitars and drums. Rythmically I will often orient my playing more around the drums (especially the kickdrum) while tonally it of course has to work with the guitars.

    How do you approach writing bass parts for downtuned and extended range guitars?

    I think a lot of it depends on what kind of music you play, what sound you're after as a band, what you want to do. Personally I don't play in a very low tuned band right now. Actually I play in a blackmetal band tuned to D standard. I tuned my 5-string bass to A standard (so just matched the...

    drop a bass pitch shifted eq

    ah ok, Well I have no experience whatsoever with neural DSP so I can't really help with that. Yes, it you tune down, you will need strings with more pull or things will get floppy. How much more pull you need depends on your playing style and so on. I play a 34" (standard "long-scale")...

    drop a bass pitch shifted eq

    So you basically pitch shift the bass down 1 step? Do you need it in drop-b for something else? Cause my first suggestion would be to just tune the bass to drop A.

    NBD - Schecter Stiletto Studio 5 trans purple

    thanks! hmmm..... I don't like 16.5" spacing a lot even though a lot of 5-strings have it. Would rather have some more space! Very cool bass nonetheless :)

    I meant spacing between the individual strings at the bridge.

    Nice one! Do you know what the string spacing is on those?

    A song with my new Dingwall NG-3 in matte pink swirl!

    That really sounds pretty cool! Also nice job mixing the bass and guitar tracks! It almost sounds like one instrument.

    Drop A string gauge, 5 string bass

    Thank you! I did notice that it's a bit easier with Standard B tuning but A still works. I basically tuned down because I joined a band that has the guitars in D. We MIGHT go back to standard though, we'll see.

    Drop A string gauge, 5 string bass

    Should i bought a bass or just program it?

    Most 5-strings on the market are 34" scale as well. Personally I play a 34" scale 5-string tuned down one step to A-Standard and I like a pretty clear, snappy, aggressive sound. My lowest string is a .135 and it works fine. G is just another step lower so it should be possible, especially with a...

    Looking for first 5 string bass and bass amp

    The Spector really feels very good overall. It's maybe a bit heavy and a little bit neck heavy (but not to the point that it's an issue for me). I also have a few youtube videos up with it: https://www.youtube.com/user/NewAeonWarlord It has passive EMG HZ Soapbars and a Noll TCM2 active preamp.

    My white whale: the SR7viiSC!

    conrats! That's an interesting bass... or... guitar.... or whatever it is :D No seriously: as a bass it wouldn't be my thing but it's definitely a cool instrument and I'd absolutely try it out if I got my hands on one! Nice score!

    Metal Bass recommendations

    Especially being from Germany, I'll recommend an Esh Stinger I or Stinger II! The "Basic" verisons are passive and could fit into your budget new. The standard versions are active and also with piezos and you should be able to find one in your budget used. They have models with a single...

    Looking for first 5 string bass and bass amp

    I play in A Standard with a 135 for the low A on a 34" scale bass and it works fine. Personally I would like 110 instead of my current 105 for the D-string though. I don't know about the Spector Performer but I have an all maple Spector Legend 5 Classic that also has the 35" scale and really...
