Thread Name: Washtub Bass Stick
Subject: Washtub Bass Stick question
I played my electric washtub bass at a gig last night. I've always used a tree branch stick because i like the look. The stickj i used last night was a few years old and i brought a broom stick just-in-case. And as fate would be, the end of the world didn't happen but the end of my stick did. It broke. I grabbed my spare stick (as if i were a guitarist) and suddenly realized that i lost MOST of my bass tone! I dont know if its my imagination, i use pure cotton rope and the broom stick length matched the tree branch. Do you think that the stick offers tone to the washtub bass sound?
