I AM A PASSIVIST
Yes, it is true, and I am not ashamed to say it.
Always have been a passive guy.
When I check out a bass for the first time, I choose to go passive if possible. I want to hear the bass’ core voice – tone and dynamics.I want to hear THE BASS.
Once I get to know the bass in this way, I check out the preamp.
Still, for personal practice, I go passive. This takes me to the music a bit quicker.
What do you say?
Basses can arrive at any time via trade, purchase from players, or new basses from our builders. Keep your eyes on this page so any fretless or fretted, 4, 5, or 6 string bass you have been looking for does not elude you any more.
I often like to do comparisons between basses in an effort to further fine tune my ears. Might be similar basses from different bass builders, or various designs from a particular bass builders. Sometimes these little “tests” are at the request of a player who wants to know how a couple of basses stack up.
The memory clears and a custom bass from the past re-appears here, with a little reflection and look back at a memorable piece.
