a low male voice
Low frequencies, often tricky to reproduce. A review that says bass is slow means it goes 'whoompa-whoompa' and can dominate the music. The ideal is good bass extension (ie low down) allied to speed and rhythm.

The lowest sounding note in a chord. Do not confuse this with the root; the bass note is the root of the chord only when the chord is in root position.
The low notes; the role of any instrument that typically plays low notes. The term often refers specifically to the acoustic bass
Low frequencies; those below approximately 500 Hz.
Low frequencies in movie soundtracks. When sound engineers are mixing a soundtrack, they emphasize the bass effects for rumbles, explosions, and bangs. To get the most from the bass effects in movies, you need a separate speaker to handle the low frequencies, known as the subwoofer.
low-range male voice
The lowest audible frequencies, between approximately 20 and 200 cycles per second.
is the lower frequency range of a sound, usually from about 200 Hz down.
The word "bass" has four possible meanings: 1) lowest classification of male voice; 2) in an ensemble (particularly a choral ensemble) the lowest part is often referred to as the bass; 3) short for "double bass" (instrument of the string family 4) applied to low instruments, eg. bass clarinet.
The low frequency range, generally considered to be below 100 hz.
the deepest range of pitch of a man’s voice; the range of pitch of an instrument within a particular family of instruments
(low frequencies) - The low end of the audio frequency spectrum between 0Hz to about 200 Hz.
The lower end of the frequency range, from about 20 Hz to about 300 Hz.
base]: the lowest-sounding male voice; or, the lowest register in an instrumental work. Bassoons and cellos are two instruments which usually play in the bass range. basso continuo: perhaps the most important characteristic of Baroque music. Often shortened to continuo, the basso continuo was composed of a bass-register instrument that could play melodic lines (such as the bassoon or cello), and an instrument capable of playing chords (the organ in church music, the harpsichord or sometimes the lute in secular music). Both the melodic bass (pronounced like "base") instrument and the keyboard instrument would read the same part. The cello or bassoon would play a single bass line, but the keyboard player would play the bass line in the left hand and improvise chords in the right. A system of numbers would indicate to the keyboard player what chords were expected.
Having a low pitch or deep tone; also, a four-stringed guitar having a low range.
Low-frequency audio signals. Frequencies below approximately 300Hz.
Low frequency Sound. Also see Woofer
Male voice of low range.
The frequency range covering approximately 20-1000 Hz.
Lower register of pitch; also a stringed musical instrument designed to play low frequency sounds; also a voice lower in pitch than a baritone.
Low frequencies; those below approximately 200 Hz.
1) The lower range of audio frequencies up to approximately 250 Hz. 2) Short for Bass Guitar. 3) Lower end of the musical scale. In acoustics, the range (below about 200 Hz) in which there are difficulties, principally in the reproduction of sound, due to the large wavelengths involved. 4) The lower frequencies. 5) On the soundboard this should refer to the bass guitar channel, not the bass drum. 6) The lowest frequencies of sound. Bi-Amplification uses an electronic crossover or line-level amplifiers for the high and low frequency loudspeaker drivers.
The lowest three octaves of the audio band. Low bass is the bottom octave (20-40Hz); mid-bass is the middle octave (40-80Hz); and upper bass is the 80-160Hz octave.
The portion of the audible sound spectrum that contains the lowest frequencies. These frequencies have the longest wavelength and require considerably greater electrical power to render them at their original strength. In a good modern speaker system, the bass portion of the response curve extends from as high as 500 hertz, down to 20 Hz (see Hertz below).
The lowest frequency sound on the djembe. To get this sound one's hand, incuding palm and fingers, must flatly land on or near the center of the drum head, with an immediate bounce, preventing the sound from muffling. The frequency of the bass is determined by the total length of the drum's pipe and bowl. The resonance of the bass hit is determined by the width of the hole at the base of the bowl and also by the length and slope of the pipe's interior walls. Click here for image.
The lowest male voice; there are several categories of bass singing, generally referred to in Italian terms.
Low frequency audio signals (below approximately 200 Hz.).
Keys that are toward the left end of the keyboard that produce the lowest-pitched tone.
Low frequencies typically below approximately 250 Hz.
Audio tones of low frequency--typically below 300Hz.
The lowest pitched male voice.
The low audio frequency range typically below 350Hz (Hertz).
The deepest frequencies of the audible spectrum - generally those below 200 Hz.
The range of the lowest male voice.
The lowest male voice. Many bass roles are associated with characters of authority or comedy.

The name for low frequency sounds, usually below 200 Hz.
(L. bassus: "low"). The lowest adult male voice.
The lowest audible sound frequencies, roughly 20 Hz–160 Hz.
Low frequencies, such as those produced by a bass guitar of lower register of a piano.
The particular low-range area of the sound spectrum where low musical notes and sounds are located.
The low audio frequency range typically below 500 Hz (hertz).
The low-frequency range of the audible spectrum, running from 20 Hz (or a bit lower) up to anywhere from 200 to 500 Hz, a total of four octaves or more.
The lowest male voice, frequently subdivided in several categories (see following entries). The range is between E and C'. This example is Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov.
(IPA: , rhyming with "face"), when used as an adjective, describes tones of low frequency or range. Played in an ensemble/orchestra, such notes are frequently used to provide a counterpoint or counter-melody, in an harmonic context either to outline or juxtapose the progression of the chords, or with percussion to underline the rhythm. In popular music the bass part most often provides harmonic and rhythmic support, usually playing the root or fifth of the chord and stressing the onbeats.
There are a range of musical instruments that can be collectively regarded as bass instruments since they produce tones that are in the bass range. They belong to different families of instruments and can cover a wide range of musical roles, often going well beyond simply providing a rhythmic and harmonic foundation for other instruments to build on. What they have in common is that they are the lowest tuned and largest instruments of their respective families.
A bass (or basso in Italian) is a male singer who sings in the lowest vocal range of the human voice. According to Grove Music Online, a bass has a range extending from around the F below low C to the E above middle C (i.e., F2â€“E4).OWEN JANDER, LIONEL SAWKINS, J. B.
