I’ve always thought the 2-band EQ is more usable than the modern 3. Great job from Lobster as usual!
Agree, I find the 3 band less ‘smooth’, and more brittle sounding
Enjoyed that !!
I have never had a problem with two or three band Stingrays. I always get a tone I like out of a Stingray or Sterling.
Honestly, I don't like either preamp.
Do you buy aftermarket preamps or just avoid preamps.
If a preamp is in a bass, I'll probably just not use it. I don't like the eq centers on most onboard preamps and would much rather use a more flexible outboard preamp. I tend to like filter-based EQs, and I'm particularly fond of the Broughton Resonant Filter Equalizer.
You must mod Stingrays or Sterlings because their preamps cannot be bypassed stock.
I'm aware of that. I know the preamp imparts a certain sound, even with all knobs at noon, but that's alright. I'm not likely to twist any controls, though.
As for my question, you don’t bypass the preamp, I take it.
No, I don't modify the circuit to bypass it.
Man, now I REALLY want a Stingray Classic after watching this. And I already have several MM's and SBMM's. You guys are enablers.
Giffro<<<< = enabler lol
What pedal is this?
To my ears, Stingray Specials can still get the classic tone just fine.
I agree . That’s one thing that makes them SPECIAL!!
You’re quite right - they are - I can get a nice Bernard Edwards sound from mine.
I like what Lobster does and this is not to take anything away from his review but this review by the Bass Whisperer is also excellent and shows just how good and versatile Classic is (btw I get similar with my regular 3 bands, but cut the mids about 2/3 and boost the bass and treble a touch).
If someone wants to have a go at embedding this be my guest - doesn’t do it from my iPhone!!
@lowdownthump If I had it in my budget, I would get a single H Special like you have. Ideally, it would be green like one Da Maestro played in that video.
Why that's the well known athlete's foot pedal
