    i work sometimes with a bass player who plucks the strings with his thumb and not his fingers
    it usualy sounds muddy and (indistinct)?
    how would one tone it up a bit to get that clear definition the low end needs?

    New strings. The ones with the edgy feel to them ... I can't remember brand names?

  6. Have you considered having someone who can play step in to do/redo the tracks? It works like a charm. Definitely one of my preferred tricks on bass... :D
