To a bassist who wants a good, fat sound
Speaking of electric bass, it is an instrument that can give a powerful bass, but it is often buried in the sound o the band as a whole. The range of the bass does not always stand out against the guitar, bass drum, etc., and its the presence may go unnoticed. At that time, the bassist thinks, 'If only I could make a thicker, lower sound, ...'. Here are some of the many easy ways to do it.
Use thicker strings
DADDARIO / EXL170
Generally, the standard strings are
1st string 0.45
2nd string 0. 65
3rd string 0.8
4th string 100
If the number is larger
then the strings become thicker, and it becomes harder to play than thin strings, but they produce lower sounds.
.055 .075 .090 .110
The smaller the number,
the easier it is to play, as the strings are thinner.
.035 .055 .075 .095
Other than that, use a preamp
There are two types of electric basses: passive (no battery required) and active (battery required). With the active type, you can easily create a deep bass, as you can boost the high and low by turning the knob on the equalizer mounted on the bass.
The outboard type simply means that the preamp part built into the active type base is taken out and made into a pedal. Not only equalizers, but also models that have dropped the sound character unique to each manufacturer, such as DREND to add distortion and BLEND to mix the sound of the original sound and the preamp are popular.
Create a deep bass by mixing the sound one octave or two octaves below the original sound.
BBE/Sonic Stomp MS92
Enhance = Emphasizes the effect, and boosts the low or high range to create a powerful, strong sound.
A compressor is an effector that reduces high level signals (= compression) and reduces the overall volume difference. By aligning the volume, you can increase the overall level (= gain sound pressure).
An equalizer is an effector used to correct each band.
In order to get closer to fat sounds, we recommend using a setting that lowers the mids and boosts the lows and highs, a so-called "I don't care" setting.
