Re: Flats

...take some of your sound away... It's not "taken away", it's just a different tone - like the difference between Humbuckers and Single coils. http://www.daddario.com/upload/BassStringConstruction2_1806.pdf Very helpful. I like halfrounds and flatwounds myself. Cheers sonicfantom, that link was ra...

Re: Boss Overdrive

Had a good play around with it tonight (the pedal), and yep can understand what people mean. Yes it can be pretty full on and sound more distortion than overdrive! Found a setting I quite liked and then yep found second point, does sound different in the mix with the rest the band! After a play with...

Re: Flats

Cool, cheers for that guys, i might have to give them a go next string change. They are hard to find? Alot of posts speak of ordering them in specifically? Or maybe that is just a certain brand/type.

Flats

Can someone - or multiple people please explain 'flats' to me? Differences, benefits, cons, etc etc. I read in a post they take some of your sound away but also take away that nasty 'finger slide' noise etc? Are they suited to more jazz oriented bass or also good with good ol' dirty rock too? Sorry ...

Pick problems...

I've always really played finger style, however sometimes desire that distinctive picked sound. What pick do people prefer - thickness, type? Have previously played guitar and tried a few different picks, 1mm, 1.5 etc but don't seem to get any good sound at all. I'm trying for that punky-type fast p...

Re: if someone asks you to play them a song on the bass

An old one I thought I'd resurect.... No-one has mentioned any Rage against the machine yet.... 90% off songs off the first few albums have plenty of great bass licks/riffs, and always recognisable too. But yea I gotta agree, money has got to be a fav to play for people, as well as some tool - schis...
