a busy weekend. Saturday night doing a semi-private party with jazz followed by live band karaoke. The 6'er handling the jazz set, the P-bass doing karaoke as there tends to be some swapping of instruments between players. Then Sunday night at The Canyon with Steely Jam, YYD as the main culprit with the P-bass taking a turn or two on Rikki and Takin' It to the Streets.
YY5S holdin it down last night for top 40s pop. No preamp, just DI into the board. I never get tired of playin this thing.
That top looks like a Jupiter... beautiful
Not a Fodera this time, but I thought you might all be interested in seeing my latest dream. A custom semi 5 string build in Sydney, Australia by master luthier Jeff Mallia of Mallia Lutherie. Enjoy. It does have Fodera strings on it. BTW the B is huge.
The imperial and walkabout stacks are all my favourite!
Probably one of the last tenor tuned videos with this lovely Monarch VW before I switch it back to EADG!
Mike Pope told me that the preamp will work fine down to 9 volts. in other words each battery can be down to 4.5 volts before the preamp is "unhappy". But I imagine that you would lose some headroom.
Have the pickups and covers back from the factory
Sound a lot more open and dynamic
The Jaco tone is back in single coil mode.
It sounds beautiful..even tho I am a ebony guy for solo bass..
Not what I'm wanting to hear right now! I got radiused, closed-pole ebony covers on my Monarch, which I really dig the feel of... like having a ramp, without losing that open space between pups I prefer for palm muting. But... been wondering for some time how much more "open and dynamic" the live sound would be if I exposed the poles. Not to say I'm unhappy with the tone, just curious how much bite I'm sacrificing with the covers. Oh the inevitable trade-offs of bass speccing.
You rock a YY Deluxe and an MIM P? That's quite the spread.
Spoke with Jason about this. He told me he could hear a difference but if you like playing over the pickups it's not really worth it. paraphrasing of course..lol
Interesting as well, thanks. I've convinced myself that in the mix, I'm making up the difference with eq/comp/tubes/etc... but as they say, its alright to wonder...
Anyone prefer TI Jazz Flats over rounds on their Fodera? I have a set on my retired Ibanez, but haven’t taken them off to see if they’ll fit on my YY5S.
prefer? i use them on a couple foderas (fretted/fretless), and have since the 90s. i also have a couple with rounds.
try them and see if you like them.
The MIM P is a very good bass. Punches way above its weight. Not a Fodera, but a great backup and certainly a better choice if I'm doing a gig where other bassists will sit in.
Yes I use them on my monarch which is dual coils and they sound great. Warm and punchy
