The premier online community for bass players. Bass guitar and double bass forums, gear reviews, and more.
Just a few minutes ago TalkBass opened up our latest forum, and we couldn't be more excited. @Leland Sklar has graciously agreed to host his own Ask A Pro forum on TalkBass! Come learn from a bassist who's played with more big names than any other: James Taylor, Phil Collins, Billy Cobham, Rod Stewart, Linda Ronstadt, Hall & Oates, Jackson Browne, David Bowie, Ray Charles, BB King, The Doors, Peter Frampton, Aaron Neville, Lyle Lovett... Sklar has recorded more than 2,000 albums and is certainly a legend that we can all learn from!
Warwick’s cooperation with Adam Clayton of U2 goes back to 2008, when Adam contacted Warwick- founder and managing director Hans-Peter Wilfer about building a bass with his specific specifications and requirements. In 2010 the first Adam Clayton Signature model, the Warwick Reverso was born.
In 2013 Adam Clayton bought a new Warwick Streamer CV featuring a P-pickup. He liked this bass so much that he expressed the desire to make this his new signature-instrument. From this collaboration, the Warwick Adam Clayton Streamer CV Signature model was born. Adam showed and played this bass at the record release for U2’s new album “Songs of Innocence”. In addition, Adam uses his new Warwick signature bass for recordings and live gigs all around the world and you can see Adam playing his new Signature bass on their 2015 Innocence + Experience Tour. This Masterbuilt beauty is now available from the Warwick Custom Shop in Markneukirchen, Germany.

Distorted sounds can then be blended with Dry signal using the independent Level controls. Fine tuning the balance between Clean and Distorted signals, the user can obtain the ideal mix for their particular playing style and equipment.
Italian electric upright bass maker MK has released a passive jazz model of their striking EUB.
May 11 2015 - The electric double bass MK mod.JAZZ-P passive(P) is our best production for the solid body sector. The JAZZ passive doesn't put electronics on board so no batteries are discharged. The signal is taken from the output and directly sent to the amplifier.
With this system we have solved many problems on the sound of the double bass, also the signal is free from noise background even at high amplifications.
The piezo transducers are specifically designed for the sound of the double bass, all transducers are strictly manufactured by us....
