Why more than one bass?

from a discussion at talkbass.com, I answered:


I record much more than I play gigs, so I have a number of basses for different sounds.
Wrapped strings, flats, rounds, active EQ, “low”-guitar tuning, acoustic/electric, fretless electric, fretless acoustic/electric, slide set-up, single-coils vs. humbuckers vs. piezo/mic’d and P vs. J … they all sound different, and make me play a little different.
