how to get ultimate fretless Mwah!
I wanted to see how all of you guys get the most Mwah out of you fretless basses, this includes set-up (With pictures of the basses string height and neck relief and how you got said set up) strings, amps, and sound clips if you have such.
I would also like if you could share how you got such Mwah! (The set up of the bass not the equipment).
Hope to hear from you guys.
I love fretless.
My first and second experience is with the same SX jazz bass.
First I defretted the rosewood neck and filled the slots with JB Weld epoxy.
Fender tape wound strings.
Good maou maou, a nice woody sound I liked, but the G string is dead on C and goes wild on E, F, kind of a horn like sound.
I bought a Mighty Might P neck with an Ebanol fingerboard, a very hard surface.
Now it has great punchy attack almost like a fretted neck, precise and the sound is much more consistant from string to string and note to note.
But it has no woody sound to it. :hmm:
As for playing, if you have to play your notes quickly, you might as well use a fretted bass.
To exploit the maou, you have to play slowly, slide up from the flat to your note and hang it there for a beat.
And have the space to be heard.
Single your bridge pickup, boost approximately 800hz - 1000 hz on your midrange and cut everything else = Mwah.
