5-string through my DNS410

Postby RipVanDan » Tue Sep 10, 2019 10:41 pm

So I finally got a chance to play my 5-string bass again for the first time in around 4-years. I bought it back in 2009 because the group I was playing with had 3 or 4 songs that needed a bass below low E. None of the groups I've played with since 2015 did any songs that really needed one. Well we started doing Shine by Collective Soul and we do it in D (original is C#/Db). So I had to bring it along to our gig last Friday.

It just coincidentally happened to be the first time I played it through my DNS-410 because I bought it in April of 2015 right before I moved to Washington. We played outside on Friday night and man did that 5-string sound good through my DNS410. It just had a really tight and solid sounding bottom end. That signature riff they do on that song really sounded great through my DNS410! If I plucked it back by my bridge pickup, it growled out the riff. No mud, no indistinct roar. It just sounded GREAT!


And yes, that's my Sennheiser mic in its bag on top of my amp patiently waiting as my son to brings my mic stand from home...

Yes, great rig for 5 strings. The band I'm in is tuned to A and there's no mud, just a great tone.
