Hey guys, next week i m going to a store to buy a new bass and a New Amp
i dont really know what the prices are but i checked around (in a other store) which bass i really like.
well here it is:
i really really like playing a 6 string, and this is my favorite
the 6 string ibanez

in combination with this amp:
ibanez 65W amp


a 65 watt ibanez combo amp ^^

the amp i m gonna buy either way. but it could be the bass is to expensive.
then i will probably buy :
yamaha bass

it is a really good bass, dont tell me "try to get more money and buy the 6 string" because they both are cool, i gonna buy them both when possible and it doenst matter which 1 first... (yes i spend to much money, but hey... who cares XD)

both sound awesome with they amp, hope i will be able to do some reviews in 2 weeks Very Happy

A bass is a guitar, just lower. Plus six string basses are tuned BEADGC, not EADGBE (standard tuning). The only disadvantage of a six string bass is that it's more awkward to play. Probably. I don't know, I've never played one.

You are sadly misinformed. I love some six string action.

My 6 string bass is sexy, however i dont use it much due to the size of the neck.

Its not the instrument that makes the musician, its how you play it.
A bassist playing a guitar is still a bassist, because they play like a bassist.
A guitarist playing a bass is still a guitarist, becasue they sound like a guitarist. This is a huge issue in 95% of bands where i live.

Unfortunately I no longer have my 7 string, I sold it a couple of weeks ago.

But remember that the term "extended range" is a two way street. You can tune it F#BEADG on a sixer or F#BEADGC on a seven string.

Sad I'm beginning to miss my seven now. But I did get a mexican jazz bass with noiseless pickups, gotoh bridge, audere preamp and spare parts with the money so I cant complain

Was thinking the same thing. Not to go off-topic, but I'm a lefty and play right handed.

probably because the're bloody expensive.

Now I think of it, does anyone know any good Left handed bass players?
I know that Jimi Hendrix and Tony Iommi were lefties but I can't think of any bassists

Honestly didn't think about it at the time because I got it for Christmas. Also, I played violin for 2 years so I already had experience playing a right handed instrument.


Don't even know if left handed violins exist. Shocked

The only thing I don't like about that vid is the tone of the bass, but even that fits with the song. Razz

I'd say he probably learned Hendrix style (right hander flipped over) and got used to the strings being that way.
