I'm, I've been playing for like 7 or 8 months, I can't post any pictures of my bass right now,
But is an Eagle Instruments bass, 4 Strings, Matte black, Active. It's my first bass btw.
Uhmmm I don't have any amp right now, But i use some old stereo speakers which work perfectly.
My favorite song... Well it would be Reptilia from the strokes for lot's of reasons i know it's not that difficult but still it sounds pretty neat for me i really liked the bass line when i first heard the song...
I first started playing with an acoustic guitar playing bass songs, But since i got my bass i've been hooked to it.
I play for a death/thrash/groove metal band called Tyrannicide, we don't have any recordings at the moment, but we're looking to get some studio time in a few weeks.
Been playing for about a year and a half, self-taught, know little-to-no theory, hoping to get lessons very soon. I play a black Yamaha RBX375 (signed by the almighty Henkka T. Blacksmith of CHILDREN OF BODOM) currently strung with D'Addario bright chrome heavy guage set, all through an Eden Nemesis NC410 (320w, discontinued, one of the few combo 410 models in existence).
Bought the bass new with several dings and scratches (only adds personality, baby!) for $480, and bought the amp used for $500.
MY TONE: super fucking shmexy. Very mids oriented, "round" feel to it, warm, smooth - comparable to that of a fretless bass.
Thanks, I'm rather fond of it. The pups are stock, I thought about buying some Seymour Duncan SB3's, but then figured, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. After thinking about it some more, I probably wouldn't have liked them anyway, I want a more mellow tone. I play classic rock and metal, and by metal I mean "classic metal." Metallica, Sabbath, Maiden, no nu-metal or screamo stuff...
I can do the Steve Harris gallop, but keeping that steady for the whole song takes a lot of stamina, it's real easy to tense up and lose it.
I have a couple bass guitars but I only play them when something really interests me which isn't often and I don't care for most bassists. I stick with material written by guys like Flea (RHCP) and Matt Freeman (Rancid), or a handful of albums like Kill 'Em All.
