Fender BG29 Acoustic/Electric Bass
This fantastic SoundFont was originally created by Marc Wielogroch. It includes multi-samples and release samples as well. There aren't a lot of SoundFonts that make use of release samples, so kudos to Marc for including them here! I haven't made any changes to this SoundFont except to tune the samples. I had noticed they were quite off-pitch when I tried to use the bass in a project of mine.

Musical Box Fingered Bass
This is the fingered bass from the Musical Box GM SoundFont. I have added a "sustain" preset that I use often when performing certain songs. Here's how it works:
- The bass is monophonic (only one note can be played at a time).
- Notes you play will sustain until another note is played.
- Any note played outside of the bass' note range will stop any notes that are currently playing.
This allows for a more natural result when performing bass lines that consist of a lot of repeated 8th-notes (for example, the bass line in Clocks by Coldplay).
