    Hi Talkbass - I played on The Late Late show with James Corden earlier this year and was really happy with how the mix came out on my Elite jazz 5! Let me know what you think! Anyone else using the Elite Jazz and digging it?





    Cheers,

    Bill.

    The bass sounds awesome, but I think the outstanding player holding it is primarily responsible for such an impressive performance.

    I saw that, and even before I knew it was you playing the bass thought it sounded killer.

    #1 Lovely tone !
    #2. I like how you kept the attack soft, yet muted the decay during the verse. You made it a strong heartbeat which made the vocals stand out more.
    #3. Love the rolling figure you play in the chorus ! Really brought the excitement up.

    You should be very proud of this performance. Hope you'll share more when you can.

    Great playing and great tone. You and drummer are a great combination. Wish I could find a good drummer match.

    Thanks dude, yeah it always makes it a lot easier and nicer when you've got a good drummer to lock-in with!

    Nice job!
    The Elites I've tried have all been great playing, great sounding basses.
    I'm still deciding whether I want a tobacco sunburst 4-string Elite, or a purple sparkle Adam Clayton Jazz to match my purple sparkle AC Precision.

    Oooo, I'd go with the classic tobacco sunburst personally, but I'm sure the purple sparkle would look cool!

    Loved it! Great song, great tone, great playing!!

    I’ve got a pair of Elite J 5’s (ocean turquoise/ebony and surf pearl/maple/matching headstock). They work perfectly for what I’m doing, I’m completely happy with them.

    Lovely! is that a custom shop job on the left?? I believe the 4 I'll be getting will be a different turquoise actually, a little bit more greener! but love that colour also!
