Is this a Stick?

    Does it sound like the bass in this recording is a Chapman Stick?

    Sounds a lot like one to me, but maybe something's different. . .

    I can hear something @ 20 seconds into the piece. Sounds like the person looped the track.

    As far as being a stick, it's hard to tell now-a-days. It sounds similar to demo's at the chapman stick website.

    Yep, it's looped one time.

    Is it a trick question if I already know the answer? :D

    Well, I'd hoped to get more bites. It's a trick question, because the answer is: No, it's my new bass!

    The neck pickup on my latest Hanewinckel is in roughly the same position, and has about the same width, as the stock Stick pickup.

    Well, I didn't read the last post before I came up with my answer, so can I play? ;)

    "No, it's not a Stick. The low-end is fairly comparable, but the high-end is somewhat muted as opposed to the treble side of a Stick - it still sounds like a bass played high."
