            This right here. I never really paid attention to bass tone until I heard this at age 12. Digging into a lot of Yes, I think while this is the most obvious (outside of Roundabout), their catalog has a ton of very excellent bass tones.

                      Ray Shulman always sounded great. Quintessential P-bass tone. He was a heck of a guitarist and violinist too.
                      I love that everybody in the band played three or more instruments.

                              Sorry, I've now posted two tracks... one electric bass, one electric upright .

                                One of my favorite live bass tones was a J-bass through a GK 1001-RB. A player known as Matt Hernandez laid down some thick bass lines on some muggy nights in small clubs across the U.S. back in the day. His tone is legendary to me and it always will be. I bought a GK 1001-RB because of his tone. I love playing a swamp ash J-bass through it all day...

                                I do love a lot of the old reggae bass tones, a lot of swamp ash bodies used in the old days.

                                I love Paul Simonon's P-bass tone, that is up there for me. The Clash have some great music.

                                Jaco, of course, but for many different reasons than just his tone... his technique was incredible.

                                I love a lot of the Music Man tones I hear across a wide range of music. Their 3-band EQ puts down some serious thunder. I used to use one through my GK and some of my old recordings have a nice, thick bass tone. My goal is to return to that ballpark again with my upcoming bass.

                                Of course, it is impossible to discuss bass tone for me without mentioning Sublime's Eric Wilson...a true diety of thunder.
