    Wanted to share this ... after 3.5 years with this band, at our last gig I finally found the tone I've been after forever... Would love your opinion on it:

    Nice, good filming too. ( Do you guys go for the black and white theme between the bass/guitar/ singer shirt, looks slick)


    Now, how long do you think this will be your tone? The quest never ends in my book, the grass is always greener...

    My opinion is that you-all have got tight.
    I love the sound you are getting, by the
    way, did you use any effects?

    My phone doesn't do it justice, but I love that song. Gotta listen on my computer when I get home.

    I have to agree with the above post,but Im a new convert to P after a decade on Jazzes.
    But in saying that I do also dig that tone in the first clip too,I guess Im looking for something in between.Plus I gotta dig in more :)
    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Very nice! I am probably a new convert in the making. I played a Fender pbass with a maple fretboard a few days ago and was surprisingly floored by the tone.

    Very nice, Pete! I listened through my laptop and I'm looking forward to putting on some headphones later and giving it an even better listen.

    My P bass in on the bubble whether it stays or goes, but videos like yours give me a moment of pause.

    On a side note, I know you're a NJ bassist, but I just now noticed you're from the Clinton area. I used to live in Hunterdon Cty (Lebanon) and was just in Clinton 2 days ago. Damn, I miss living out there!

    Merry Christmas!

    Thanks! Merry Christmas to you too. I've been through a hundred effects, amps and basses but this combination seems to finally be magic. I was a jbass devotee for my first 25 years then got that P-bass 3 years ago and haven't looked back.

    Sounds great.

    Been a while since I played Cumbersome.... Or my Precision!

    Also, a fresh set of Rotosounds didn't hurt either.

    I was about to guess this, no lie! I love the tone, and the fact that you achieved this without any effects is a true testament to the consistency of your technique. Very nice.
