my first recordings with a piccolo bass

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by thumbknuckle, Jul 12, 2016.

  1. I came upon a set of D'Addario piccolo strings at a music store, and on a whim grabbed them and put them on an old and retired bass I had kicking around at home. They are fun! It's like being able to play guitar with my same dumb and clumsy bass player fingers.

    I recorded a quick run through the head of one of my tunes with it and put it up on the internet, here it is:

    The piccolo bass is an '83 Ibanez Roadstar II that I love to death but which is really, really in need of a lot of work. It got gigged often and hard when I was younger. The 'bass' bass is a Peavey Axcelerator 5. Recorded in my garage.

    Here's the tune:

  2. Sounds pretty good for a quickie, just need to add some defects on the Tweety bass. I picked up a Zoom G1x years ago that has everything.
