    Live, studio, solo in the bedroom, WHATEVER! Maybe even a sticky if we have enough of them between all of us. I'll work on getting some of mine up. I've got some good representations of two ash/maple PJ5's, one NYC and one Metro, recorded at the same venue with the same equipment.

    Sounds like a fantastic idea! I hope there are clips of basses strung with flats as well as rounds, and that there are clips free of slapping for those of us to whom slap tone is irrelevant.

    If you go to my MySpace page you can hear a song I wrote using my Sadowsky Standard 4 and 5.

    The Track is called "BASSically Speaking"

    This was recorded direct to the board with no amp or effects. Both basses have the HC pups in this recording.
    Note: I have since switched to the Singles in the Standard 5.

    If you got a myspace account add me as a friend while you are there!! Enjoy!

    Above is a playlist I created from a recent live show. That's my NYC PJ5 (ash/maple) strung with DR Black Beauties, being recorded out front on a Zoom Q3 recorder. The sound is basically the bass through the DI channel of my Aguilar DB750, going through the PA's mains.

    Most of the other tracks aside from the 3 selected are me on my BSX EUB. Good example of how these basses sit in a mix. I'll try and get some solo recordings up featuring the same bass strung with Sadowsky flats. And I promise that I'll keep the slapping to a minimum!!!

    Some live clips...

    #M3912 - Metro U/V ash/maple five-string; Genz Benz Shuttle 9.0 > Aguilar GS112:
    So What
    A Night in Tunisia

    #M432 - Metro M5-24; Epifani 502/902 (varies from clip to clip) > Epifani UL310/410 (ditto):
    Sound check jam
    Ain't Got You

    Both of those M5 clips were recorded before I had the VTC installed. I'm hoping to have some fresh recordings soon - all the recent gigs have just had too much ambient noise to capture anything worth sharing. I've also used it on a couple of recent sessions, and I'm anxious to get my hands on some rough/final mixes - it sounded absolutely amazing.

    You're a good man, Vic. I know you've heard 'em before. :D

    Definitely a great thread idea, though. There's a similar one in the Roscoe forum, and it's a terrific means of hearing the instruments in action and [DEL]stealing other cats' ideas[/DEL] err, gaining inspiration. ;)

    Cool! I'll share mine, even though this one is with a camcorder, but you can definitely pick up on some of the goodness part way through.

    Plus.... just look at the huge crowd, huh?

    I'm using my Modern 5 JJ. Roundwound strings... no VTC, I boost my bass and treble a little bit and I've got a Sansamp with the drive set to be clean when I play normally and dirty if I pick a little harder.

    Here's a clip from a couple of years ago of the Vintage 5 string direct through a 300W all tube head (6 6550's), 2 4x10 cabs blended on the board at the Sky Church at the Experience Music Project in Seattle. Very simple blues tune with a "flat tire" dotted 8th groove, but the tone gets pretty nasty.

    Very cool arrangement of So What-very nice!!! I really like the way that the M5-24 sits in the mix and the growl factor as well!

    A Groove is a Terrible Thing to Waste! :cool:

    Here are a couple of short clips from a recent show: Metro RS4 with SBF40 flats, no effects, pickup selector midpoint/bridge, preamp off, through a Markbass Mini CMD 121P 1x12 Bass Combo Amp, recorded through a single Zoom placed in the front row of the room.

    Not the greatest solos, but the tone of the instrument cuts through nicely for a sound sample.
