What kind of bass should I buy first? It is hard to choose the first one from many kinds, such as jazz bass and precision bass. Here is a brief explanation of how to choose a bass. I think that referring to this will help you decide.
There are two basic types of bass: Jazz Bass and Precision Bass. Jazz bass is often used as a starting point for beginners because it combines two pickups to create a wide range of sounds, and its thin neck grip. The precision bass is a model originally based on the jazz bass, with one pickup and a thicker neck. However, the powerful sound of precision bass with a thick neck and split coil pickup is still popular as a rock bass.
It is generally considered that many high-priced basses are good in playability and sound quality, but recently, even among low-priced basses, there are many solid basses based on top models. did. Sound House recommends PLAYTECH basses above all. At Sound House, we handle a wide range of low-price basses as well as our own brands so that everyone can enjoy music freely. For those who do not know what to buy for the first time, and excellent support with a trouble-free lineup.
In addition to the standard model jazz bass and precision bass, there are active basses equipped with a preamps on the bass body. Jazz bass and Precision bass are called passive bass, so let's remember. The passive bass has only "volume" and "tone" controls, but active basses can be divided into bands such as treble / middle / bass and equipped with a preamp to create positive sound. The active base uses a square 9V battery to drive the preamp. Because the signal from the bass body is amplified, it is less susceptible to noise before sending the signal to the amplifier, and the active type is often used for recordings that have difficulty with noise. Please rest assured if you have a passive bass! You can get the same effect by connecting it to an external preamp.
There are not only four-string bases, but multi-string basses such as five-string and six-string. For the 5th string, a thicker string (Low-B) is added to the thickest string based on the 4-string bass, and for the 6th string, the thinnest string (Hi-C) based on the 4-string bass and the thickest string (note: Lately, many basses have specifications added with -B).
There are also fretless basses with no frets on the fingerboard. This can produce an upright bass-like sound on an electric bass, so it may be necessary in some cases depending on the music. As a bassist you should consider this too.
