Benavente SCD!!!!!!!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by caesarbass, Jun 14, 2007.


  1. It got here one day early!! :hyper: Thanks Brian!!!!
    I am pretty much in awe over this bass, it is a functional piece of art!!! I've been doing a bit of recording with it, just getting an idea of the tonal characteristics of the bass and the eq and pre. I will say this, it is VERSATILE!!! The wide humbuckers are very warm and thick sounding, and I really love the way they sound passive. In active mode, there really is no bad setting, I can dime the mid, bass, and treble and it still sounds great, I love the 18V pre, plenty of headroom!!!
    Here are some pics and I will soon post some soundclips!!!

    I am leaving it B-G!!!

    Here are some soundclips:
    Latin Groove, chords were done with the bridge pup boosted and the mids boosted and a little chorus and verb. The bassline is the Neck pup with the lows boosted and a little compression.

    Slap thing, both pups on and bass and treble dimmed, and I know there's too many notes, I just wanted to see what she could do...

    I recorded the bass directly into my DAW through an Avalon U5.

  9. I'm sure Chris is building them, I thought maybe you were getting a used one, or a custom one built.

    i think they'll be in the fall build for the jan NAMM show, more than likely. I have yet to decide what to do with the next oracle. the LEJ is all set I just have to decide which quilt billets(s) Im going to use for the body

    and no my basses arent finished, between my 2 business and an ongoing lawsuit I have no time whatsoever, its 90+ hours a week for me at work(s)!
