    Hello there. I just got myself one of those little garage band type page things to host some songs. So I was wondering if anyone would like to listen to a jazzy recording, featuring myself on the double bass. We're just a few 17 year old kids, so the recording quality is a little low. I was just using a Fostex 8-track digital recorder, and it's internal mic. The bass was amplified using Fishman BP-100 pickups, a 2-band Fishman preamp, and my Peavy 800 watt amp head, powering a Peavy 2x10 cab. Any comments, suggestions or questions are more than welcome! Thanks for your time!

    It must be my speakers at work cause all I hear is piano and drums. I'll get headphones and get back to you.

    Yeah, the recordings aren't the best. Some speakers you get overwhelming bass, others it's a really good mix, and others, it's really hard to hear the bass solos in. I wish I had money and good recording equipment, haha.

    :D Sorry for the delay.

    Sounds pretty good, although I don't think that BP-100 is doin you justice.

    Keep at it man.

    Thanks Nadav.

    Matt, I know whatcha mean...gettin' a good sound from it sucks. I'm sure having a more specific amp and a little more knowledge wouldn't hurt, but if this bass were mine I'd definately try something like a Realist or Barbera bridge transducer set up. Thanks a ton for the kind words! I never can have too many comments, haha.
