Ok guys, which is the P bass?
Wow tricky. The both have a certain P-ness about them (snigger)
I vote 1.
I'll tell you what, you guys are going to be surprised which the p bass is.
The second track is the true p bass. The first track was a schecter stilleto elite 4 with the neck pickup solo'd. The schecter is an active bass as well. The P is passive.
knew it! but...i'm playing my p-bass right now
I was shocked about how good the schecter can nail a p bass tone. I can tell a difference between the two recordings but not a defining difference. They both have some good low mid action which is usually a good sign.
Yay!!! now I feel really important!
I thought it was the second track because I have a Jaguar bass with a P neck that, in active mode, sounds really like a P bass with the neck pup solo'd.
I don't know, the second one sounds like every P Bass I've ever tried in a store, and the first one doesn't so much. To me, that is. Maybe I just guessed lucky but I felt like this one was pretty clear-cut?
You have quite a loud backround noise....
And your rhythm for Runaway is a bit off
Just goes to show what a lot of us have said - a LOT of dual pickup basses can nail the 'P' tone with the neck pickup.
I could tell when you got to the lowest note that it was #2. A real P doesn't have that kind of smooth low end as the bass in example #1.
I bet neither of them are P basses!
I guess bass 2. The first sounded to me like some sort of humbucker like pickup, Musicman, or something like that. The second track sounded much clearer, and I could never tell the difference between an active and passive bass. Total guess for me, really.
EDIT: I listened again, so deceiving! Eager for the answer though. Love these sound polls.
Excellent playing by the way, whatever that was, I dig it.
Ya it was a little bit, but I wasn't being too picky with the recording, i just wanted to throw something together real quick. But your right, upon a second listen i know exactly what you are referring to.
And as for the background noise, I didn't even notice it until just now when i whipped out my headphones. (i didn't check the recording on a quality sound device) But, I'm sure its because of the way i recorded it because I did it differently.
i wanted to say 1, but i just knew it was going to be 2....
He already answered it in post #5. I was hoping the op would hold off telling us the answer a little later too.
I didn't want to but plenty of people votes for the wrong one so I figured it was enough to justify answering. I figured most people would vote before reading the thread anyway.
I thought it was the first. It sounded the fattest of the two and it has the mid-fart/burp that I associate with a good P-bass. I thought the second was a Jazz.
The second bass is a Rogue Junior bass and the first one is a Fukai Project-P one, I'm sure!
