    What router do you use?

    I have a cheapo router from lidl. I bought it because i wanted to build one (yes,one,1) bass and no more (yes,NO more,0) Poor me..i fidnt knew it..i have build threbasses already.Even the torzal twist is made by this cheap router. But this month i will buy a stayer pr10ek. 1800watt and 12mm shank.For all the heavy works

    Tried a Dingwall combustion NG today

    My opinion is,eood doesnt matter on ekectric instruments. I hearing guitarist talkung about woods and they finally playing withoverdrive and distortion and 10000 other effects,and they thing after all this,they can hear the difference in woods..

    The funny thing is that,all the "wood experts" dont like basswood because its used in cheap basses.My vig cobra is basswood and it sounds amazing

    Tuning question/ recommendations

    The "no definition" is my mistake.Sure there will be definition in each note,otherwise all the notes should sound the same.So i have to apologies for this misunderstanding.What i am saying is that there will be less definition.And this is exactly what are you saying

    Its a low pass 15" + high pass 6" There are many good cabs out there.My next target is a BFM omni 15 but i will not rest before i will try a low passed 18".The accougroove el wapo grande (21") will be there only in my wildest dreams

    If you have a longer scale but a cab thats not good,its big problem. What i have learned all these years is,the cab is more important that the bass guitar if you are looking for "huge" lows. I have tune my vig cobra select 5 in F#BEAD and the sound was very impresive (my cab is a fearful 15-6) and this is a comon 34" scale cheap bass

    Tuning question/ recommendations

    I think we are saying the same thing with other words. Lower tuning means bigger string gauge.Bigger string gauge means darker sound.Darker sound means less harmonic content.Less harmonic means less note definition. Of course,there are more things that have to do with this,as scale,electronics,pickups,pickup position,how is the string winded (how many wraps it has) string material,is it flat wound or round wound etc. For example,my 40" scale p-bass with 19 frets and a dimarzio dp145 right after the fretboard wired in series and dp127 wired in series,and they are wired together in series with a 250K tone pot and 0.168μF capacitor,tuned F#BEA with heavy strings (the B is .135 while kalium quake has it .118) and the sound is darker than dark.When you hear it,you change your opinion about how a bass should sound.But the definition..ok,there are basses out there with better definition.The same bass has a piezo bridge.If you hear it from the piezo (same strings,setup)the definition is huge.You need to turn of the mid and treble knobs in the amp to make it sound like a bass

    The bad thing with down tuned basses,is that there is no definition on the note you playing,but some songs (like enter sandman) sound better if you transpose them and play them lower. For me,i like to try new things with my basses.When i say "i play bass guitar" its not clear what i am actually doing.Because i dont play bass guitar. I play with bass guitar.That means,i try different setups,effects like flanger,making "horror movies ghost sounds",tune them different than normal,and other things. C'mon guys,is not just what you need to play,is what you like to play or try.Is like a game.Experiment with your instrument and have fun.Thats the true reasson for playing an musical instrument,have fun.

    The lowest tuning i have tune a bass is B00,this is B one octave lower than 5-string B,its 15Hz. I have make many weird tunings,and what i learned is: You need a gauge that gets the pitch you want with the tension you like in the scale you have. So,you can ask Neil from newtone strings to build you a string that do all these.Tell him the pitch,the scale and how stiff you like the touch of the strings,and he will do the rest 😉

    The truth is,there are guys eith better building skills than me and they would have better job.The bass has a few misstakes because its my first torzal build. BUT its very easy to play (i can play "killing in the name" very easy,slap and pop it) So,i thought it will be hanged on the wall and i was thinking to build a new 5string to be my main bass,but tgere is no need to do this. A 34" scale is eadier to play,but navarone is my main bass for now (you know..till the next build be done..)
