Only thing, the bass used in the video has some very dead strings on it. It sounds like crap. I am surprised who ever produced this video would let that fly.
I like that "dead" sound, I play black nylon tapes
Yeah, I've seen this before. It's a cool interview, though.
A Groove is a Terrible Thing to Waste!
It's just slightly a more old-school vintage sort of sound, probably with nickel strings the maybe the VTC rolled down a touch. I certainly don't think it "sounds like crap".
It's a neat clip.
'Dead' is relative. Certainly they're not all crystalline, but that is not necessarily 'better', it's just a different sound.
I added that video to my favorites on YouTube. I've seen it before, but it definitely bears revisiting from time to time. Roger and his team have refined their craft to a near science. And his attention to detail is extraordinary.
From the standpoint of educating ourselves about proper setup and care of the instrument, you should watch this video. Roger's remarks about frets alone are eye opening.
Science, yes, but also art. Crafting instruments of that caliber can be made quite scientific with all of the specific measurements, as Roger shows us. However, he is first and foremost crafting, and therefore an artist. An artist with the attention to detail of a scientist.
Roger Sadowsky, one day one of your basses will be mine!
