Hi everyone. I'd just like to post a blindfold test of my two main basses, a 2005 Fender Jazz Bass American Deluxe and a Carvin BB75, probably from 2000-2003. Here are the photos: And here the specs: Construction: Bolt-on (Fender) vs. Neck-thru (Carvin) Body: Alder (Fender) vs. Koa (Carvin) Neck: Maple (Fender y Carvin) Fingerboard: Maple (Fender) vs. Ebony (Carvin) Electronics: Active (Fender y Carvin) Pickups: Jazz SCN Noiseless (Fender) vs, Carvin J99 Bridge Stock (I don't know the exact model, sorry) (Fender) vs. Hipshot A Style (Carvin) Nut: Bone (Fender) vs. Graphite (Carvin). As you can see, we're speaking about two very different instruments, both technically and conceptually. Both basses are equipped with the same strings (Elixir super light, with five month of intensive use), and were recorded through my EBS Gorm ET (flat EQ, no compression) to the computer. Here's the audio: Test 1. All-around Balance: Neck PU (50%), Bridge PU (50%) EQ: Flat Recording A Recording B Test 2. Bridge PU Balance: 100% Bridge PU, 0% Neck PU EQ: Bass (+1/3), Mids (+1/3), Treble (-∞ Recording C Recording D Test 3. Neck PU Balance: Neck PU (100%), Bridge PU (0%) EQ: Flat Recording E Recording F Test 4. Slap Balance: Neck PU (50%), Bridge PU (50%) EQ: Flat Recording G Recording H I hope you find the blindfoldtest interesting!
