So, starting in April I am going to be playing bass on my friend's record, he has an extremely impressive home studio, and has hired a producer (I will not say the name, but he is legendary). I am having anxiety about the project, I want to bring in my Wal, Benavente and my Low End jazz for the recording, but I get the feeling that the producer is going to look at my basses, (they all have more than 4 strings) and say that they are not going to work, they are not 4 string fender basses from the 60's, and they need flatwound strings, and why don't you have a fliptop? I know I can get any sound out of the basses that I normally play, in a way I feel like an idiot for even worrying about this. I should just go and get an old Hofner with flats and a p-bass, or better yet just sublet the gig to a bass player with those basses. Is this normal, do they really look at your gear and decide from there weather if you are going to work out or not? I have no track record, no metal plated records to hang on my wall, am I making more out of this than I should?
