I have had a bunch of people asking for samples of what my two PJ5's sound like so here they are. One problem, I cut my left index finger really deep last night. The slice is almost exactly where the string touches my finger in normal palying position. SO, if my timing is a bit off or I am a little sloppy cut me a little slack. By the time I finished the last track finger was really sore. Won't be palying for a few days. The things I do for people. Geesh. Ok, I do not slap so this is all finger style. I have a very simple groove that I play anytime I try a bass out. It is just a good reference point for me to hear the bass and let it speak to me. All the samples are the same groove. Finally, the compressed MP3's DO NOT do the originals justice. So when you listen to them imagine them...well, well, on Steroids! Bass #1 - Sadowsky PJ5 (reverse P), Alder, Morado, Sadowsky Flats. Sadowsky preamp on. Set flat. VTC not used. Sadowsky P Pickup Solo'd Sadowsky J Pickup Solo'd Sadowsky PJ Pickups - Blend Dead Center Bass #2 - Sadowsky PJ5 (reverse P), Ash, Maple, Sadowsky Bright Nickel. Sadowsky preamp on. Set flat. VTC not used. Also, the P was switched to match the other PJ5 with the three sets of pole pieces under the B, E and A strings. Sadowsky P Pickup Solo'd Sadowsky J Pickup Solo'd Sadowsky PJ Pickups - Blend Dead Center Both basses were sent direct into a Digi 002 rack. No DI, No EQ, No Nothing. The Alder/Morado bass is deeper. I am not sure how much of that is the Alder and how much is the flats. Anyway, hope you enjoy them and I hope that it helps those asking about Sadowsky PJ5's and the differences in my two Sadowsky's.
