Alain Caron's Unique Punchy Tone
I have never heard a jazz player who sounds like Alain Caron. Love the tone and style. Very punchy. He plays on Markbass and F Bass. Of course much/most has to do with how he plays, but is there something else? Special compression settings? Or, is he just matching up with the bass drum better than most?
Take a look at Slam the Clown or Turkey Loose on the Kit on youtube. Amazing.
Maybe all I need is an F Bass. ;)
All you need is to become Alain Caron ;) Trust me, it ain't the gear.
Here's a video of him talking about his Markbass Amp:
It's a great amp. I got to try one but would really like to try it again with my bass.
when he slaps he does have stainless steel strings
To me it is more is tone with a fretless bass
