What's your favorite Hi-Fi sounding bass and why? Pictures and audio encouraged!
what constitutes a bass being hi-fi? (free bump, but i want an answer)
i guess for starters a hi fi sounding bass will have active pickups?
The sound. Like the tone musicman's are often catagorized as having
I always thought a Rick through a Mesa sounds like Hi-Fi dirt..
You can hear everything, but in a grindy type of way, I guess...
To me Hi-Fi does not = mid-scoop, it just means clarity...
I guess a nice, clean Hi-Fi bass would be an Alembic, a Wal, or even a Stingray with a maple board...among many others, like Sadowsky, Roscoe, and such....
The opposite of Hi-Fi to me is a Gibson EBO....or a Hofner..
Well, I'm a Music Man kinda guy.
I guess no one around here likes hi-fi sounding basses other than EB's.
In my limited expirences with Sadowskys, I've found them to be quite hi-fi.
To me, HI-FI = Modulus.
+1 I concur!
v-12, i think you hit the nail on the head
MTDs are to me the epitome of Hi-Fi basses
Foderas, at least Vic Wootens sound pretty Hi Fi too
and of course Modulus
Wow, I guess the rest of the Dingwall fanboys must be on break or something, so I'll have to say it: DINGWALL! Take your pick, they're all good. My weapon of choice is an Afterburner I.
my Adlers use hi-fi Villex pickups, with a wide frequency range.One of them has a preamp with an output frequency spanning 2hz-200khz.The high speed preamp prevents harmonic realignment,giving the bass the ultimate hi-fi sound.
Yeah I can't think of anything more hi-fi sounding than the couple fo MTD's i have played.
Hi-Fi is in the electronics, not the bass.
Hi-fi is just short for high-fidelity. Fidelity is faithfulness to the original. So if your signal-chain faithfully reproduces the source of the sound, it is hi-fi. That's something I normally associate with a sound reproduction system, and not a sound production system. To me, your whole rig is part of the sound production system. It's like... what is the source? Is it just the vibrating string? Or is it the tone added by the wood of the body? The bridge? The frets/pickups/tone pots/vacuum tubes/cable/speaker/cabinet/pick?
Hi-fi is something that passes on the signal without adding coloration. But if you're the author of the signal, you get to make it sound however you want. It's the guy who's listening to it at home on his stereo that should be concerned with hi-fi.
