Have a listen. It sounds nice, low and boomy.
He played J's and P's, but this sounds like a P to me.
The nice mid-bass and lack of low bass makes it a P for sure. Mine sounds just like that.
Nice bass/kick EQing, classic sound.
That 'boominess' is what most people call thump, part of the P sound, especially with flats.
I'm guessing it's a P but on recordings you never know.
Sounds like flats for sure, but I can't tell much else through my laptop speakers. Great tune though. Fantastic groove.
I had a chance to buy the Pensa bass that was played on a Dire Straits tour, complete with documentation and photos. It was a great playing and sounding bass, but too much money for my budget. You run into some great used gear here in Nashville.
Strong mids leads be to think P bass
Not sure about what was used in the studio, but in this video he's using a P bass (cant make out headstock logo). Nice shot of bass at 2:00.
Great song. Knopfler is awesome.
P bass, classic sound.
Neato. Thanks all. Makes me wondering if my next bass should really be a J...
