You have the opportunity to get one bass made by anyone. What do you pick and why?

Good exercises for left hand- consistency/time/speed? I could use some help.

I'm a decent guitarist, and I know what notes to play when I walk, so that's not much of a problem, but time always feels a little shaky when I use finger style picking. Does anybody have any exercises or tips I can grind my right hand on? I'd appreciate it!

Cort B4: How to get a good passive tone?

Hi guys,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to get a good, fat tone with the Cort B4 ash without using the active mode all the time. With my playing right now I want to use the active mode as a boost in case I have a solo or something like that… How much can I do with my amp? Yes, I could just boost the bass and cut mid and treble on the amp but then it's too muddy. Maybe it's just my amp being shitty (Laney RB1), but there should be something more I can do

[Feedback] First recording with a band in about 10 years, a 5 song EP

https://thefurtheradjustments.bandcamp.com/

Like the title says, this is my first recording with a band in a long time. My own assessment is that I kept it a little too simple at times in stead of playing how I do it live, maybe studio anxiety or something. I'd really appreciate some feedback so I'm happier with the next one. I was really only happy with the share of the mix I got once the songs were mastered, I was a bit quiet before that.

First four songs are my MIA Jazz with DR Legends (flats), A Better World was played on a '67 Precision with rounds that was in the studio, all through a Bassman 100T into some kind of 410, mixed mic'd cab and line.

Secondary question: I never know how to place the "genre" of the music I'm playing when people ask, because to me it's kinda just the four of us getting together and having some fun. How would you describe this?

Edit: the album is actually up for free/donation so if you like it, keep it, and thanks for listening!

Ampeg SVT III (non-pro) 400W tube amp head?

I recently saw it used for $300 but cant find much online about this model (only the SVT 3 Pro).

Is this a good deal? Is this a good amp? Should I hesitate?

Any other comments/ concerns about this model?

It’s my birthday, gimme some feedback on my band’s new EP?

Haven't been to this sub in quite some time, but I used to be a pretty active member and loved the notes you gave me on my first EP.

Thanks in advance, my low-end brethren and sistren!
