    I've done a search, and apparently no one has ever posted a soundclip of a nordie before...
    Please please please - Can all those kind (and very fortunate) souls who own nordies please post up some soundclips for all of us here at TB to gawk at?? :D

    The ones on the site were recorded during NAMM... it's really hard to hear the bass through all that noise :(

    Thanks Adrian :) But how 'bout the other guys? Hman, Jeffrader, Embellisher, Funkycarnivore... I know you're reading this!!
    I'd love to hear what your nordies sound like!! :hyper:
     
  4. Todd at basstasters.com told me that Carey was sending him a bass to post soundclips of Nordstrand pickups. I haven't seen anything listed there yet but it's a very useful/helpful site if you haven't been there yet. Several differnt basses played through several different pre amps, etc. Hopefully he'll have something of Carey's there to listen to soon.
     
  5. Go here - and scroll to the bottom - there are clips of Adrian and Carey jamming and some solo bass lines that demo the sound of the basses really well:

    PS

    I WANT THE NAMM BASSSSSS!!!!

    Sorry - got a little carried away there...

    Actually Rusty,
    The clips on my site were recorded in my office. And direct to disk as well, with no mics. You may have me confused with another builder that has all kinds of NAMM clips and videos...

    I used a Read Purity basically as a DI(ie. flat) into a Digidesign Mbox. Everything is set flat unless otherwise noted.

    I will have a link to some songs that my basses were used on in a day or two. Then you can hear how well they record.

    I am also going to do a lot more MP3's as I start to develop more pickups and as I complete basses.

    My bad. Must have been some loose screw in my head somewhere. I just checked out the soundclips again - and they sound great :) Perhaps it was all a bad dream...

    New clips comin up from the man himself?!? Woohoo!! :hyper:
    I can't wait!!





    Slightly out of place here, but... GO DETROIT!!! 1 MORE TO GO!!

    Yes Mascis, that is a good sample of the different sounds possible with the NP4. In my personal experience I can only say that it's a bit addicting to play a bass with that pickup in it.

    Todd,
    I really should send that bass to you because it sounds really danged good. Again, addicting in a wierd way. But, maybe it's just my Aguilar db750 that makes everything sound so good...

    Adrian,
    C'mon bud. Let's have a chops showdown. J/K, I'm a builder not a player...

    Carey, I wholeheartedly agree! :D

    Perfect timing too, as I have EA, Thunderfunk, and Aguilar rigs to play through.

    thanks AG :)

    mascis, that's a nordstrand dual coil (not the fat stacks) and a set of RMC piezos. Mostly the piezos (its set up at about 70/30)
