Me too. Played Tenor Saxophone prior to picking up the bass.
Isn't this bass topic going a little off road ?
All roads ... tuba/saxaphone/trumpet ... lead back to Sadowsky?
We all came to our senses and should light a candle to Saint Roger?
Wait, why is a Saint Roger Sadowsky candle not a thing?
Fixed I for ya..
I was a flautist from 3rd grade thru HS. Started on sax but I rode the city bus everyday so that thing was a hassle to carry around. Flute fit in my backpack, lol. Did local junior orchestras, all that hooey.
I'll never forget this.. I was 11 in 7th grade music class, this new kid - a 9th grade "stoner" with a bass guitar sat behind me. I had been a budding air-guitarist up to this point, but when he plucked that first note... It was over. I wanted THAT in my life. All day every day. And I wanted to do it better than him. I don't know why, but I got a chip on my shoulder that day... it's kinda weird what can motivate you .
Can I get a Sadowsky flute? (Trying to stay on topic)
Hearing electric bass live did it for me too. Downtown Sarasota. Some guy killing it on a Musicman 5. I heard those big ol' notes and like you said ... 'it was over'.
Wow... Congrats... There isn't much Sadowsky P bass videos on the Internet. If you ever record some video please share with us.
I wonder if these are the stock strings that came on my mij metroexpress. If so I need to get some as well because I’ve been recording a lot with it and I wouldn’t change a thing, so versatile.
I’ve posted a few in this thread FYI,
I love seafoam, but not sure I like that anodized guard with it.
needs tort IMHO.
Hey, you're right! @ElMon Can you have a Tuba with Tort?
It grows on you. Kind of a 50's Pbass 'thang'
I've got a tort guard and am even considering coloring my pickups a cream color. Just for funsies, and because I've always liked this when I've run into it:
My attorney strongly-advised against it.
I ventured out to the Sadowsky shop to check out some basses and chat with Roger.
My buddy Paul tagged along to join in on the experience. Paul is a saxophonist.
Looking and playing some Basses I’m looking at the price tags and my blood pressure is starting to go up.
My friend Paul calms my nerves and says he has a few saxes, each in the $6-9k range.
It certainly worked, because what Roger is charging is a bargain for such perfection.
My other buddy is a drummer, he has drums worth double what a Sadowsky bass costs.
Playing catch-up up with funds fixing up the house, but I assure you when I’m ready, I know where to go.
The Roots double down and use tuba and bass guitar simultaneously. The effect in their live show can be pretty amazing, and they play off each other well. And to keep on topic, here's their bass player, Mark Kelly, with a Sadowsky.
Stage name of the Roots' tuba player ... wait for it ... 'Tuba Gooding Jr.'
Another tuba player, here. I have done my high school alumni band the past several years (since my kids are in marching band), and I must admit, I kinda have the bug to grab me a tuba! My wife is opposed to this for some reason...
seafoam, no tort or gold. just as reference
This my surf green Reimer has nordy pick ups and sadowsky pre amp...got to have the tort...
Good correction in a sense. My wife who played flute back in the day corrected me before that flautist is if you're from England and it's flute player in the US. I guess it depends on where you come from or who taught you.
2 things hooked me on bass, my friend getting a Lotus P bass for Christmas and he taught me how to play Money on it and I wound up playing it better than him. Soon after I tagged along to one of my dad's gigs and the keyboardist played bass on a Moog with his left hand. He had this relatively small Polytone amp that just felt like thunder in the room. Stand up close to that amp and your pant legs would shake. I was hooked on bass after that, i actually borrowed one of the keyboardist basses for a while to learn on.
Seafoam w/parchment and matching head!
