What is the collective term for a bunch of bass players?

On a serious note; sorry can't help it's built in my psyche, how about a "Profound" of bassists.
From the phrase Basso Profundo (or Profondo), Latin for deep bass. It might be written on a score somewhere.

It sounds obscure enough to be a question on "The Chase".

Basso Profondo is the Italian term for a solo bass singer who has not only solid low notes, but also a heavy, dark tone throughout their range. Of my two Yamahas, I would only dare let one of them have that title.

In Russian choral music, the basso profundos have extraordinarily deep voices, lower than a cello. I think I can hear 5 stringers clearing their throats at the thought of a 4 string with standard tuning being permitted that title ;)
