    Alright gents, for all of the curious folk here is the demo of the Jack Bruce Survivor. All in all, it's a really sweet bass that has grown on me quite a bit. I really dig the vintage sound with teh Warwick growl.

    That amp sounds so deep and thick for it's size. Bass sounds great too. Thanks for the post.

    There's a demo for that coming; had one recorded previously, but the audio level on the recording was clipping a lot so it's out. Last thing I want is someone to think the clipping from the mic level is actually from the amp, which is isn't; this thing is CLEAN.

    The Jack just got a lot more work. I talked with GHS, and we're going to be making a lot of audio samples for them to use on Soundcloud that will focus on many of their bass strings, and we're using this bass for it.

    Yeah, it was pretty cool. We're going to do some clips of seven different sets of strings, in various styles to hopefully get them a fairly robust collection of samples that will be easy for anyone to be able to compare/contrast with what their tonal goals are.

    And to think, it was initially between this one or the AS Stuart Zender (which I kind of still lust for).

    Honestly, I don't think you could've gone wrong with either of them! They both have such original sounds...and uncommonly seen appearances. Enjoy the JB!

    Oh, I plan to. I'm in talks to play in a production of RENT at a local equity theatre, and the Jack is going to be on that gig. It just HAS to.

    As for the Zender, there's always next year... :) That is, if the wife doesn't shoot me.

    Nice demo. we can catch the juicy bottom end voice this bass have... Seems to have a lot of low mids content in the sound...

    Thanks !! :)

    Seriously Garey, more people need to know about this bass because it's a SERIOUS contender to many of the others out there.

    I took some time over the holidays and modded it a little; put on a Hipshot DeTuner, installed a JAN I nut (which I've always loved), and also sanded down the neck a bit, so it has a satin finish now, and is super super super smooth and slick.
