    Good bass to give as gift?

    that ibanez bass, or any SR range is perfect. They are the most confortable both in body size and neck. Jazz basses can sound great but have lots of neck dive on your lap and they are huge. SR would be the best way to go As others said, forget about the katana.... or any type of modeling amp...

    Ormsby Rc-One... any out there?

    yes, run6 hypes was made in a more stained finish. I was also pretty surprised on the "dullness" of the color. Future runs where made with a more of a candy color coat over. Much similar to the mockups also, you guys need to remember, this is Korea making the painting, not us. Funny enough...

    Pickup and Preamp Recommendations for Custom Bass build

    yup for nordstrands pickups, cant go wrong with them. The real question is the position of them on the bass, so do bit of research on that as for "pre-amp" , see it more as a "on-board EQ" , dont aproach it as a "pre-amp" like a guitar amp (for example). The darkglass pre-amp is not gonna...

    Help with my wood…well choices for custom

    go with the woods that are more prettier to you. All the choices you mention are gonna work great. But if you go with one wood only neck (either maple or wenge) be sure its a 3 pc and not a single piece, its gonna help in stability way more than whatever "tone" benefits from a one piece neck...

    Do you need to plug in both powered studio monitors?

    ^ that. daisy chain monitors are usually the smaller/cheaper stuff. IE like the mackie 4" and usually come with a 1/8 input and RCA too . those yamahas and others more "pro" are usually independent to each others in power/input/level and usually come with 1/4 and XLR inputs only google the...

    Ormsby GTR?

    ^ yup pickups on the Ormsby guitars are same standard sized bobins out there. Difference is that the guitars have less string spacing, so once you slant the pickups, pole pieces align. But yes, you can swap baseplates no problems. As long as the pickups its an open bobin passive ofcourse...

    Ibanez 2021 models (Headless!)

    it is depending on how you play it. doing a F barr chord on the 1st fret (the msot extreme angle), your wrist have less break angle than if you do the same chord on a regular fret guitar. mind you, to acomplish this your elbow needs to be closer to your body (on a multiscale), rather than...

    Does this bass DI sound right?

    yup, sounds like a normal bass would sound. Welcome to the world of bass, where things are waaaay different to what guitar people think they are :P :P on the active EQ, yes, the middle notch is 0db+/-. Use the EQ controls to dile in a bit better sound, a small boost of bass and mids that high...

    Teach me how to dial in a Djent bass tone like Nolly

    that long scale is gonna give you some clarity tone (same as a long scale guitar vs regular) having said that, his bass pickup configuration is what makes it. His two pickup bass prob would be more similar in sound to a Stingray type of bass MusicMan humbucker type of sound. If the bass you...

    Fretless 5 string for a deathcore band?

    kinda-ish saying the tone is in the fingers is like saying the tone is in the hands when playing a guitar. This is true and false at the same time true in the sense of attack, dynamics, feeling, timing.... (taking out the improvisation part of the equation...) but false in the sense of true...

    Fretless 5 string for a deathcore band?

    unless you are doing alot of sliding I wold say stay away from fretless unless you have an extraordinary perfect ear/techique in order to hit every note perfect in intonation on a very fast passed metal context. you are adding yourself a whole extra level of difficulty for a (in my oppinion)...
