What makes the rich, mature tone that Basses have?

I'm a rather young Bass singer: only in my early teens, and I'm trying to improve my tone. I've been told by my teacher I have a very dark tone, so I've been working on brightening it for the past month or so. However, now that my tone has brightened significantly, I noticed that my voice sounds much less mature than other Basses that I've listened to. Now I'm confused about what gives a Bass, especially a classical soloist, that "Bass" sound other than the brightness/darkness of their voice or if I simply made my tone too bright.

By darkening your sound you were falsely reproducing  a "Bass" sound. As an early teen singing with a relaxed natural tone you are NOT going to sound like a mature Bass singer. The "Bass" sound comes from vocal cords big enough and long enough to create the bass sound. At this point concentrate more on singing the pitches and learning vocal techniques. The Mature sound will come when your voice matures. Do not rush things and hurt your singing by trying to get a sound that you do not yet have.
