    Greetings all

    I'm new on the DB side of Talkbass. I just bought my second EUB, a NS design CR5m and want to share with you some soundclips I just recorded...Just to know what you think about this "hybrid" sound. Hope this thread is at the right place.

    By the way please excuse my bad English, I try my best.

    First of all, your English is fine.

    The bass sounds quite "fretless slab"-y to my ears. That's not a bad thing...in fact, I'd consider one of these if I needed a fretless sound, since I enjoy basses that point towards the sky versus basses that point towards the horizon :smug:
    It sounds pretty organic and growly. I certainly wouldn't mind having one in my arsenal. My current needs dictate that my EUB sonically mimics a double bass, so I use an Azola for road work. But the NS sounds nice in its own right.

    Thanks a lot, Marcus to share your opinion !

    The azzola must be a great choice too , Do you know where I could find sound samples from it in order to compare both ? maybe You recorded some yourself ?

    I used it to record all tracks on Amy Hanaali'i Gilliom's release entitled "Pu'uhonua", in 2001. If you go to http://www.amygilliom.com, you can hear it on a couple of sample clips. You can also see a blurry pic of my shining head onstage in the photos section, behind the infinitely more attractive Amy, taken while on tour in Japan (I'm playing a real DB in that pic, graciously provided by the Japanese promoters).

    I listened to the 2 samples. the first , with those long sustained notes in the bassline allows to hear in detail the sound of your EUB . it sounds really different compared to the Ns, there's also this little fretless bass side (I guess we can't avoid it on a solid body instrument) but it's fine in the mix !


    thank you for the soundclips.
