Following bassaussie's thread about the sound differences between the J/J5 and the P/J5, I recorded a few soundclips because notes speak better than words! Both basses have fresh 045-128 Sadowsky Stainless Steel Strings. I have used the onboard preamp to boost the bass and treble on each bass. For the neck pickup slap sound I lowered the treble a tad. As usual, sorry for the bad playing Harmonics test #1 JJ5 PJ5 Harmonics test #2 JJ5 PJ5 I feel that the harmonics are richer and stronger on the PJ5. I don't know if is because of the alder or because of the different pickup placement though. Fingerstyle, both pickups full JJ5 PJ5 Fingerstyle, neck pickup only JJ5 PJ5 Fingerstyle, bridge pickup only JJ5 PJ5 To me, the sound of the PJ5 seems stronger in the mids, it sounds a bit "fuller" IMHO. Must be the alder... Slap, neck pickup only JJ5 PJ5 Slap, bridge pickup only JJ5 PJ5 Slap, both pickups full JJ5 PJ5 BTW, I am putting the P/J5 for sale, will post an ad soon!
