Re: SINGLE STRING SLAP PERMUTATIONS??

Hi Aaron, welcome to OBF. We like stingrays and bacon, so you should fit in well around here. :) A couple things stand out to me (as a teacher and a player)... 1. A proper DI feed from the bass into the camera/computer will make the bass sound a lot clearer. 2. Slow down each exercise to a step by ...

Billy is a great example and I like what I'm hearing with that pedal.

Re: Any Markbass Evo 1 users/opinions?

BTW, this 'split' sound/channels thing is not really new. The guy who has been doing longer than anyone else is Billy Sheehan (Steve Via/Mr Big/Tallis). Here's his drive pedal. It's pretty good and a fair bit cheaper. I thought John Entwistle had been doing it longer and did Chris Squire do it too....

Re: [FS/FT] 1966 Fender Jazz Bass (Vintage)

Not so sure I would describe it as darker and quieter ,actually hard to put your finger on,you just know it’s not quite doing what you want.Probably thinner sounding comes close. My mate owned a studio and had a 62 ri stacker and said to me it was not right and stopped using it,he bought a standard...

Re: [FS/FT] 1966 Fender Jazz Bass (Vintage)

Yep,pre 65 j basses are hard to come by. The case looks to me to be about right imho.Vinyl binding like a Stanford 64 case.Re stackers. If you do some research and dig little deeper with people that have both you will find a slab vvt will sound nicer than a stacker,harder to find as well.The guy fr...

Re: Happy New Year !

Happy New Year from me too. I was supposed to go see the fireworks at the Gosford waterfront tonight, but couldn't go because I couldn't walk that far....... Why? Because I smashed my little toe against....... a bass cab this afternoon. I'm guessing there aren't too many people who can claim that as...

Looks great Greg
It does. Not my bass though, unless you're saying the schematic looks good. :hmm

Re: Ebay thread PART TWO - the good, bad, and ridiculous...

The body shape on this is very strange. When I saw the first photo of the body I assumed that it was just taken at a skewed angle, leading to a slightly odd look. All the photos show the same odd shape though, so now I think it was faked by somebody working from a photo taken at an angle :-) I gues...

Re: Betsy, the Fried Egg Bass

Had time to do some more work today. The body was from the Warmoth 'In Stock' section, so was routed for two Jazz pickups. (Assuming Warmoth have it right) it's interesting seeing exactly where a P and J pickup sit along the body. The P coil closest to the neck, is much closer to the J position tha...

Re: Ebay thread PART TWO - the good, bad, and ridiculous...

Be aware of a cheap StingRay for sale on Gumtree. It's clearly a fake, really cheap but advertised as Made in USA. Serial no#: E22554. The actual bass this serial number belongs to is a 5er. There are also 2 others that I've found with the same serial number on Ernie Ball website that are fakes. ht...

Re: NBD Fender Jazz 62 RI CIJ Ocean Turquoise

This looks to be correct. A pair of 220k resistors from the wiper of the pot, which means the two pickups/pots/capacitors, don't 'see' each other. Same way a simple passive mixer works. I don't know you could go any lower with the resistor values? As you have it at the moment (and the way most seem ...

Re: Betsy, the Fried Egg Bass

I believe Betsy is complete, other than the binding getting fixed in the new year. Sounds great (even if I say so myself). https://i.imgur.com/qFztZp9.jpg https://i.imgur.com/RMVFo1l.jpg I used a Hipshot Kick Ass bridge. I'm a fan of the old Badass bridge and the owner of this bass, really likes my ...

Re: NBD Fender Jazz 62 RI CIJ Ocean Turquoise

I used to have a Japanese Ocean Marine Turquoise Jazz. I really miss the way that body looked. Great colour. Does the control plate have the 'mixing' resistors? Very few seem to and most schematics leave them off. They are the reason the stacked knob circuit sounds darker and quieter than the standa...
