About Bass

In the music world, electric bass guitar is often referred to as bass. Just like an electric guitar, it is an electrically amplified plucking string instrument, however it usually has four strings instead of the guitar's six. Also it has a larger body and a longer neck and scale length. The strings are tuned an octave lower in pitch, in the bass range. Basses come in both varieties - fretted and fretless, though the fretted variety is more common. The electric bass is used as a soloing instrument in jazz, fusion, latin, and funk styles, and bass solos are sometimes performed in other genres. Paul Tutmarc developed a guitar style electric bass instrument that was fretted. It was one the first designs that was meant to be held and played horizontally. The first mass produced electric bass was made by an electric engineer James K. and it is called Fender Precision Bass. It was introduced in 1951 and became a widely copied industry standard. Throughout the decades that followed, bass guitar began to evolve. Several manufacturers entered the market such as Gibson, Rickenbacker, Danelectro, ESP Guitars, Alembic and Music Man Instruments. Music Man produced the StingRay, the first widely produced bass with active (powered) electronics. Ned Steinberger introduced a headless bass in 1979 and continued his innovations in the 1980s. Today both the electric bass industry and the playing community have matured and seek newer technologies and designs. Today basses are mainly made of wood (alder, rosewood, mahogany, ash, bubinga, etc.) while some guitars are made of granite. Artificial materials like luthite are also used. The material used in the making greatly influences the sound of the guitar. Guitar necks can be made of a variety of materials like wood, graphite, wenge, ovangkol, and goncalo alves. One can go for fretted or fretless and also there is a choice in the shape of the guitar (carved or flat design). Modern basses accommodate a variety of tunings and can be run on dry batteries or an AC power supply.
