Band performances come out perfect when musicians not only know how to rock out their audience with their musicality, but also when they use quality instruments and instrument parts. The bassist has an important part in the band’s whole sound giving life to their songs with the slapping and pounding of the strings.
For extreme metal music, bassists are advised to use a five-string bass to achieve that heavier sound. But of course, in order for a five-string bass to sound really good, it needs to have an excellent pickup.
A lot of fine five-string bass pickups are on sale at the Musician’s Friend website. You can choose from a variety of awesome 6 string bass pickups from Musicians EMG and Bartolini series for classic and original five-string bass guitars.
Impress your audience with your cover of a classic jazz song or with your own rock composition by sounding good with these five-string bass pickups. Who knows, but one day soon you can follow the footsteps and be as popular as other five-string bass guitar players like Jason Newsted of Mettalica, or like Fieldy of the band Korn.
