    For anybody wondering what this rig sounds like, I did some jamming in the basement on Friday night and got a stereo mic recording through my Hi-MD player. Here it is:

    Clarus SL, Epi 112UL, Epi 110UL. Volume to spare, I think I had the master and gain set very low. Like, 8 o'clock on both.

    It's E-C, but the E string sounds kind of big and boomy like a B! Thanks!

    It sounds good! You're drummer is all over the place though, its driving me nuts...
     
  5. Thanks for sharing!

    Sounds good. Your are a nice player and I enjoy it!

    Is that any sound different between your Clarus and your Focus?

    i quite liked the drummer,

    maybe it gets a little much at times but if everyone has good time and everyone is listening to eachother then i think it can sound quite interesting

  7. Nice playing, nice tone... nice even, full, balanced sound on that C string, which is not always the case...cool!

    I'm more into 'groove' drummers myself, but pure personal taste.... when a drummer 'listens too much' it can get quite interesting, but also quite grooveless:D

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it much!!!

    Sometimes I like the interactive thing, it just makes it fun when you can tell someone's listening to you...still, I also like to hear a "pulse" in whatever music I'm playing, whether it's being played or whether the feeling of the pulse is so strong it doesn't need to be played. My favorite drummer right now is that guy Thomas Pridgen who plays with trumpeter Christian Scott. He is the perfect blend of interaction and straight up nasty as$-kicking.

    Hou- I have a Focus 2 and a tiny little Clarus SL. I like the Focus because it has two channels for running a mic+pickup blend on my upright. However, I find myself taking the Clarus SL to nearly all of my gigs because it has plenty of juice and IMO sounds identical to the Focus. They have the same preamp section, with the SL lacking a notch filter (that I never use). I *have* actually heard someone say that they thought the Clarus SL is the best sounding of the AI amps, but I can't hear the difference if there is one.

    Damn Will. That rig sounds incredible. When ever you're ready to send me that bass just let me know. I can give up the B string for that sound.

    I think the rig and the playing are both great! (Drummer drove me nuts too!....I'm sure the guy's good, but he listens too much! :))

    Yup, cool playing Will. You and I use some similar stuff, rhythms especially. I wish we lived close so we could shed on things together (and so I could play that bass....:D )

    I've got to admit......I want to shoot the drummer. He wasn't listening at all. He was just trying to show everyone what he has. Drove me crazy.

    Great playing and I like drummers who "listen" in that format, but it doesn't work at all in pop. My favorite jazz drummers are the listeners like Roy Haynes and Tony Williams. But I've seen both and I can't imagine either one playing on a straight ahead pop/R & B tune.

    +1 on that man, and thanks for the words of encouragement guys. I would be taking lessons from you though Andy, working on that four finger business especially!!!

    It's funny, you guys hear things I never thought about. I just play and try to make it work no matter what's happening, I guess I'm way more self-critical than anything else!

    We'd be teaching each other my friend, I can assure you. There was some hip stuff in there.

    Dragging behind here! Nice playing and great tone Will.

    My guess is you could pull that out of most rigs. Sweet setup.

    Sorry, I'd love to hear it but the program is not compatible with the system I have at work. From the threaders know to have posted and their comments makes me feel like I'm really missing out.

    Thanks Jmain, I appreciate it man...it is a nice sounding rig.

    Mac- I haven't run into any compatability problems with the Icomposition site though sometimes it gets weird with IE. Sorry, I'll be glad to email it to you if you send me a PM with your address. You're probably going to be disappointed after waiting for it tho. :p
