Perfect for slapping and fingerstyle, this bass suits the playing style of the bassplayer being the main man in the band but in my opinion falls a little bit shortly when you go to the level of a sideman or as a band anchor. With the mids scooped in this bass, it hardly cuts to the mix especially if aim just to provide that anchor the band is looking for. If you are playing with a trio, its great. But with a fullband with a keyboards and a brass, you need pedals and a an amp with a 4-5 band EQ with mids to cut through. It doesn't mean the bass is bad, I mean the sound quality is perfect! It's just that it has its specific strengths. You also need to cut significant bass or treble if you want to play mellow songs to get that warmth tone in, or else you will sound very aggressive which will not match those flirty tone you are looking for.
It 's a slap machine , who really like to slap this is probably the one you should try out . The top end of the sound is so punchy , but for the low end is a little too muddy for me . if it has been changed the electronic ( especially the pickups ) , it would be one of the perfect bass for me
