    ok, this is for neptoon. i started a new thread because sound clips are always something special. :D

    the bass was recorded through a hartke kickback 15-combo's headphone-out into a sb-live's line-in. everything set flat. i played some (midi-)drums and keys to hide some of my miserable intonation and technique. i played two different basslines over the loop. one features the bridge p/u(s), the other one the neck p/u(s).

    unfortunately some distortion occured and i didn't have the time to tweak the settings. but it's not too bad.

    you can download the clip here:


    i hope you like it.

    hey, right on, man! thanks for the clip. i would've thought that you would've gotten a more trebley tone with the steel fingerboard, but it doesn't seem that way at all. very cool. thanks again!

    thanks for the nice comments!

    they actually motivated me to record another clip.
    this time i removed the hartke and plugged the
    bass right into my line-in using an adaptor.

    it was done in a bit of a hurry, but "shows" the bass' great sound nicely.

    this clip features two different p/u settings, but both feature the neck p/us:
