Bee Fretless Samples

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Stewmc5222, Oct 14, 2004.

  1. hey all,

    if anyone's curious, I posted some sound samples of my fretless 8-string Bee Queen here:


    they were just quick improvs the week I picked up the bass and were recorded straight into a friend's computer after we had gigged most of the day.

    from the lows,

    Nice stuff! Both in the tonal department and playing, thanks for sharing.
  3. Nice playing Stew, I particularly enjoyed the funky little number 2. The tone on the whole is great, lots of low mids and seems like it would sit really well in a mix.

    Thanks for the clips, keep groovin Stew.

    i love the fretless sound
  5. hey guys,

    thanks for the kind words! it's the same fretless that I used on the lone ballad on the new Brotherhood of Groove CD. it also appears on a track or two on a disc by a cat in Detroit named Joe Pedoc (although I think I misspelled his last name).

    Fred really knows how to make a great bass!

    Sounds great (as does all the playing on your site http://www.subcontrabassist.com)!

    Man, its time for me to go practice! :bassist:

    Edit: Question - Are those SIT Strings on the bass? Which set? Thanks!

  7. hey Marshall,

    thanks for the incredibly kind words, man! wow! I'm totally blushing...


    the strings on these recordings are actually a set of the Dean Markley SR2000 with a custom Basso low F#. I didn't have my SIT endorsement at the time.

    What a great sounding fretless! I'm constantly more curious about the Bee basses. Thanks Stu.

    Stew can you please supply the full specs on the bass like body wood, neck, fingerboard, pick-ups, even strings used.
