Elixer Nano vs Rotosound 66 vs Chrome Flats
I'm having trouble deciding which of these i like the most. I created a guitar/drum track and then I tried them all on my 2010 Am Std P bass and went direct into Garageband to create a sample of each that is cleanish and then one that is overdriven.
I think I like the Daddario Chrome Flats the most for their thumpyness, but the others have awesome character as well.
What do you guys think?
I play 99% of the time with my fingers, and some slapping well. I'm also somewhat new to bass, but have played guitar for 20 years.
I currently play through a Ampeg Micro-VR with the matching Cabs.
Clean Rotosounds Swing Bass 66:
The rotosounds. I like the way they 'snap'.
But I'd suggest looking up some bass EQ tips. It sounds all scooped and gets buried in the mix a bit.
I left it mostly the way the garageband preset started, and just adjusted volume to match so I didn't change anything on each track to affect the strings tone
I has a hard time hearing the bass to really tell the difference.
I'll try to push the bass up and repost later this week. Thanks guys-
Bluesman, I can hear the bass cleary :) the chromes seem to make the bass sit in the mix better than the rest :) and thats coming from someone who used to swear by elixir and currently using rotosound which I don't think I'll be using in the near future after hearing how better chromes sound :D
Thanks rob! I played with the band last night with the chromes on and I liked the low/low-mid thump a ton. The elixers and roto's both sound good too, but I think they sound better without the band. With the band I think I'm gonna stay with the chromes. Anyone else take a listen?
