I finally had a chance to use my new Lakland Joe Osborne in a full band setting. All I can say is, wow. The lows were so full, nice punchy mids, and clear but tame highs. I have to say that I love this bass. I played around with some different settings, using the neck pickup solo'd on some old Hendrix stuff to get a throaty fat tone. Then I rolled off the tone a bit to get some serious thump for some motown tunes that we're working on. My usual setting of both pickups full on, with the tone wide open, yielded "the sound" that I've been looking for. The profile of the neck, coupled with the satin finish, makes for a super playable bass that I didn't want to put down even after 3 hours of straight playing. All the guys in the band commented on how great it sounded. I'm a convert. The Geddy Lee is gone, and my other main "player" bass is moving on to a new home this Friday.
