let's hear your fretless
Ibanez Gary willis Gwb1
conklin custom sidewinder (using piezo)
not the greatest recordings in the world
Blue in Green
Did it a few years back.
Swamp ash Warmoth body, Carvin neck w/ebony FB, Lace Sensors.
Here's a little clip of my Elrick singlecut fretless five:
Elrick fretless passive
Here's me playing mostly the same thing but with the bass active.
Elrick fretless active
And I made this one just now.
BTW, if anyone listens to this track, can you tell me what time signature it is? I thought it was in 11/8, but I'm still having a very tough time figuring out time signatures by just listening to them.
I'm using my Boss RC 20XL looper on all of them. No effects otherwise.
nice work fellas
That are some really nice samples... Suddenly I'm feeling heavy GAS for a fretless
when the second part comes in it stays in 4/4 to me....the intro is a fragment of the whole ostinato (in other words--pickup measures to 4/4)
anyway sounds like 4 to me but i know not much
Bassius, what are the specs on your LB76? I'm looking at having one built as my next electric fretless. Also, are you using roundwounds on the ebony (I presume) fretboard?
here's a pic
it's from 95/96 old wilkenson's bridge.
i use rounds on all my fretless basses...ebony is tough stuff and i probably wont be needing to sand the fingerboard anytime soon.
i've had that thing 10 years and the fingerboard is in great shape.
Fender jaco pastorius fretless with sadowsky pickups and boss ceb-3.
That is a mighty fine looking bass, and it sounds even better!!
My fretless sounds nothing like that, i really want that sound, my sound it much warmer much darker. I want a bit of bite!!
Sweet bass Bassius, sounds absolutely fantastic. What are the neck woods on it? I'm just wondering whether mine will be mahogany with 2 maple stringers or walnut with maple.
As for fretless clips, here's my Fender standard MIM jazz bass in "Finding the Empress":
Click on "Finding the Empress" else it will play Autumn Leaves by default (which is on a Fender precision)
mine is a 1 piece maple neck...
Here is a couple sound clips I did with my 5 sting stingray fretless.
The ones that say stingrayfretless1 and stingrayfretless2
Here's a garage take of Little Wing by our band. Be kind - garage mix's aren't my favorite. Also, please disregard the very obviously missed note in the second section (caused as someone barging into the garage at the wrong time) Also be kind with the intonation (I've only been doing the fretless thing for about 3 months)
The bass is a Dean Edge 4 Fretless (rosewood board) preamped to the board (pretty much the natural sound of the bass). Here's a pic:
Here's the link:
Another track with the Dean Fretless:
Really nice! My compliments.
How's this for fretless on a old rock tune? I was able to dial in an older tone pretty easily.
Here it is:
Awesome! How did you get so much *mwah* out of it?
mmm that elrick sounds fantastic, the active one is beautiful. Bassius your clips aswell a outstanding as to be expected, some of the coolest slap I've heard done on a fretless
