: I'm a composer needing some advice regarding the lower range of a bass with C as its bottom note. How easy is it to play down there? Can one play lots of fast notes easily? Are quarter tones (microtones) possible between the E and the C?
: Thanks in advance.
"Standard" basses, which make up most of the population, can only go down to E. Only those equipped with an Extension, or a player with a five string bass with a low B string, can go down to C. Mechanical extensions cannot play microtones, and from my limited experience with them, speed is not something they excel at.
