: : i need to know if there are any black or death metal bassists out there and what type of rigs sound best for sick tone are hartkes with those aluminum cones ok or too clean? p.s. i tune down to c# and would like set up- action and string guage tips too. please post on-site, thanx out there .

: I tune to C# and use GHS Boomers(medium)through a carvin 600R into an old
: Peavy 4x10 Cab. it does the job. the floor shakes. I am curious...why do you
: tune to C#? I do it because I play alot of Black Sabbath......late....john

i tune so low for the sole reason of sheer heaviness. for examples check out bands like Immolation, Obituary, Mobid Angel- etc. it gives a very sepulchural almost subsonic feeling bass tone that fits the music. since youre a Sabbath fan think, "Sweet Leaf" type sound but even heavier!! -sik.
