Sunday morning was hectic. I woke up with about 20mm of water standing in half of my den courtesy Hurricane Ike. After pumping out the water with a wet/dry vaccum cleaner, I go ready for church since I was playing. I got there just a smidge late and did not have time to set up my Sadowsky outboard for my Fender Jazz V and grabbed my 55-02 instead. I know the older 55-02s get crticized for having that dark Bartolini tone, but that tone kills for alot of music! The youth choir is doing a version of "An Awesome God" with a sort of semi-hip hop/Middle Eastern beat, and that 55-02 really worked well on it. The song went over so well we played it twice. I am a child of the seventies, and I love bright, trebly bass tones whether it is Chris Squire, Geddy Lee, Marcus Miller, or Mark Adams (Slave.) The fact is, however, that the instrument is bass, and sometimes the bottom should be emphasized.
