love the 50's single coil p bass and just wondering how they sit in the mix?
Versus split coil pickup, I do notice it doesn't bring the same authority in upper registers. EQ fiddling, which I don't like to do a lot, could be the charm. Thoughts?
I've only ever played jazz basses and when i see stings beaten up single coil p, i have to have one!!
bass face anyone
he does look a bit like a skinny overgrown old drunken leprechaun there - that smile....
In the mid-late 70's I played a 64 P with Rotosounds into an SVT. When I needed to refret it, I found a 68 Tele bass. I strung it with Rotosounds.
My hard rock band was loud and my P bass cut through nicely. My Jazz bass cut through. My Ripper didn't...it just got lost.
The Tele bass punched as well as my P. The placement of the pickup made up for the low end punch that might have been missing if it were closer to the bridge.
It sat well in the mix. It actually was very close to the P.
Dusty Hill seems to be doing OK with his.
