    This is from the Women's Day service 9/24/17. I used a Boss Super Octave pedal on this song. Please listen to this through headphones.

  5. I put La Bella Original 1954's on my Fender P/J bass a few days ago, I love those strings. I had always been hesitant to try them figuring they would stress the neck too much but nope, after setting the truss rod the neck is still straight as an arrow and there is more to go. You can put the action way down low and dig in pretty much as much as you want without slapping the frets. They have a big sound too, they are definitely keepers.

    Pbass with Chromes can do anything. I was bored this morning and ran it through a fuzz and OD, used a pick and it was just this throaty, cutting tone that would be great for heavy rock.

    Of course for R&B/jazz it is incredible clean or with effects. One thing you may want to try is running it through the sadowsky preamp. I use the Noble 2 band pre and just add a bit of treble and bass an always on. Works perfectly with Pbass and Chromes.

    Sounds good! Great choices all around.

    I debuted Chrome's on my ovation magnum 3 this morning. Played mostly with neck pickup solo'd. Was great in our slower/ballad songs. What a difference a week makes on these strings.

  10. It is an epiphany that lasts awhile.

    When I play "What Is Hip?" on the one Fender P I own with flats, I get it. I'm almost a full-time convert.

    I know how you feel. I love my Peavey Fury with flats, but I am keeping rounds on my fives. Round wound brightness is a beautiful thing too.

  12. Same here. Tonal variety is the spice of life.

    I don't have headphones to listen to it properly! :(
    Time ito invest in some headphones.

    Did any of the church members comment on whether or
    not they liked the octave pedal?
    Did anyone even notice your tone was different?

    Anyway, looks like a great time and a man enjoying his
    craft! :)

    Love your honesty! Too many bassists blame the bass!

    I would love to put my basses in the hands of someone like Marcus Miller to
    hear what they are really suppose to sound like! :D:roflmao::D

    At a rehearsal, someone noticed the tone. The effect is more noticeable on D and G strings, but it really thickens the sound, and can substitute somewhat for a five.

    FWIW, the tone of the Peavey Fury was already pretty thick, so the
    octave pedal probably turned it into beast! :)

    I like my lows the same way I like my ice cream. Two scoops please!

    Thanks for delivering a double dollop there. Sounds great! I get so tired of that nasal scooped out tone that's become the norm. :thumbsup:

    Yep. I dig it. Chromes on my LB-10 P bass and TI Jazz Flats on the L2K. Meaty, punchy P sound. Yummy.
