Precision tone identiy

  1. What is the best way to know if your bass has the right p or j sound from the said pick ups? :meh:
  2. Your ears will let you know.
  3. I know your ears will tell you if you like the sound but what tells you that its the right p sound or the right j sound. How does the pick -up get its identity?

    your ears will let you know thats for sure... but for me I really noticed the way my P worked in the studio meaning I listened to how it sat in the mix of a song. As well I also play it out live alot and for me I have not had a situation where it came off sounding bad it has become a very dependable instrument in almost every situation.

    I guess you need to just play and see how its works for you... if its giving you the tone/feel you need.

    Yup. The only "right" sound is the sound YOU like.
