Customizing Your Bass

In the beginning, most people didn’t long to play the bass. In fact, most bassists started out playing another instrument and then switched to the bass because a bassist was needed in order to complete “the band”.  However, as time marches on, bassists have grown to become a fundamental part of music both as solo artists and as strong members of the band.  These days, there are many Bass Players that newcomers can look up to and in doing so, they realize that playing the bass is more than just a talent, but also, an emotional equilibrium. That is, Bass Players tend to be more level-headed and calm. If this is not the case with you, no worries. Everyone is different :)

However, as bassists go, you are an essential part of the band whether your band members say it or not. Your audiences are not interested in squealing guitars and over-the-top drum solos. They listen to music for its calming relationship between the mind and the spirit. That is what you provide!

For that reason, it is important that you know your instrument well and are capable of changing it up a little, if needed. That is where NorCal BASSIX helps out. The founder, Wade Craver, takes you through the process of “Customizing a Bass”. This includes adding new circuitry and changing the tuners on your instrument.
