Bass is that sweet spot between harmony and rhythm. I'm a percussionist primarily and I honestly would've never been able to pick up any other instruments had it not been for learning bass.

It can be the greatest part of any ensemble, while at the same time it can be the worst... really depends on the musician.

Fender Precision Bass with a Peavey Mark VIII head, and a custom 2x15" cab with Peavey Black Widow speakers. Used to belong to my grandpa.

Also, the bass has Seymour Duncan PJ active pickups. The crazy bastard carved up the body just to put in the bridge pickup.

Sounds great, but he fucked up the wiring. I had to fix it myself, and now the neck pickups don't work because they haven't been played in 15 years. Other than that, it sounds fantastic. I plan on buying a new body and pickups, and restoring it completely.

>METAL CANNOT INTO BASS

It's definitely not the best genre for making it shine, but metal bass isn't totally horrible. That bass solo near the beginning of Hammer Smashed Face is one of my favorites.

This won't be for everyone, but: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWrHFKWS028

My dream bass. Actually I'd rather have an Alembic, but there's no way I'll ever afford one. A German Warwick is something I can reasonably afford to save up for, and they are still pretty fucking amazing. Of course, I'm pretty satisfied with my relatively cheap Ibanez GSR 400. I bought it used for $175. It was my first bass and the one I still love playing the most.
