What the drowned man told the world
This recording uses my new (made in 2000) Warwick Thumb. I really enjoy the tone I can get with it.
I think my band is going to take on this song, so there'll be a better recording, with a proper guitarist, keyboardist, singer and lead solos and everything! :hyper:
ETA - I should mention that the drums here are Jamstix, and that there'll be a real drummer on the final track too, and he's pretty dang good.
Here's a picture of the Thumb in question.
I first thought I wouldn't like the tone with the way the pickups are voiced, but now I see that it sounds awesome in the mix. And it's very easy to play. I know it's supposed to have neck dive, but I haven't noticed any. That may be because that Levy's strap came with it, and the leather on it grabs my shirt pretty well. In any case, it hasn't been a problem.
I'll be gigging with it for the first time tomorrow night. Can't wait!
I dig it. Bass sounds really good. Though the drums really make it sound like a demo. It has no life. A set drum beat never works, it need to be programmed to play the song. I also get the sense that the band wants to push the tempo a tad.
Vocals are good but some of the harmonies are a little pitchy.
Sometimes a few corrections make the difference between great and "so so." This could be great.
Thanks for the feedback!
The drums are Jamstix; a real drummer will get a crack at it soon. Likewise a real singer, keyboardist, guitarist too. I'm looking forward to it.
I like how that thumb sounds. What effects are you using?
On the Thumb I'm using Ampeg SVX set to the B-15 model. On top of that I'm using Sonar's ProChannel effects to tweak it a little, but that's it.
Is your Thumb a bolt-on or NT?
It's a bolt on.
