Sound clip of an 8 string?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by AmazingGracePlayer, Dec 23, 2006.

  1. Happy Holidays everyone!

    Can anyone post a sound clip of an 8-string bass? By 8-string bass I mean the kind of bass with 2 E's, 2 A's, 2 D's, and 2 G's stacked together in pairs.

    Well, you could always come by and check out my 12 string ;)

    There's a Hagstrom 8 stringer on the wall at GC Springfield.

    Other than that, I can't find any 8 string clips for you.

    Any JPJ from his work with Diamanda Galas or solo.

    Any of that Zep's "Presence" album - Achilles Last Stand, Nobody's Fault But Mine, etc.

    The intro to Pearl Jam's "Jeremy" is a 12 string bass, but same idea - bass string and two strings one octave
  5. Diamanda Galas looks like she can bite everybody's head off :eyebrow:
    great vocal though and superb playing from JPJ

    The whole album rocks. I consider it one of the top albums I own.
  7. Listen to the bass hook on "Dream Police" or the entire "Live at Budokan" album.
  8. I'll drop by sometimes at your house. I'll be going to GC today I think =)

    i'll try to post my fretless 8 in a few days (family takes dim view of me locking myself in my studio during the holidays).

    In the meantime listen to Michael Manring's Fire Sermon--beautiful but then again it unlikely any of us will get that sound out of ours.
