Look back a bit in this thread...you're welcome.
But listen to the beauty of the P Bass in the mix.
If no one has mentioned this yet:
Yeah. It does sound pretty badass in the mix...well, REALLY badass in the mix...long live Deacy!
The reason I started to play bass was the absolutely amazing Precision tone which Guy Pratt used during Pulse tour with Pink Floyd. Sometimes is very close to Jamerson´s tone.
John Wetton. SVT head for cleans, Hiwatt heads for overdrive, has to be one of the Pbass tones.
I agree , Dee Murray is one of a kind.
I agree totally
Just reading this thread - interesting reading.
Can't believe only one mention for Glenn Hughes - his Purple tone is killer. Ric on 'Burn', P-bass all through the rest. 'Made In Europe' (confirmed Precision - although GH is pictured with a Ric) is sublime.
...and yet another vote for John Wetton. His King Crimson P-bass tone remains an absolute pinnacle.
Nate Mendel of the Foo Fighters
Rob Wright, Nomeansno.
Too many posts to read! But my nominees would be :
Eric Avery (Jane's Addiction)
Andrew Weiss (Rollins Band)
John Nowlin (Barkmarket)
Totally. I also dig his tone with Black Country Communion and California Breed.
Way too many to pick from! Mars has to be one of the top in my book.
Anyway, I was just listening to Moisture by Dishwalla. Don't know if it's a P, but holy cow what a great P tone.
Anyone know if John Deacon played a P Bass on Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy? I love the deep, bouncy-sounding bass tone on that song.
Jeff Pilson on the "Shadowlife" album by Dokken.
Well, he uses a Stingray here, but a lot of bassists used different basses for the music video IE: the fabled Geddy Lee. I think just about everything he recorded was done on the P bass with flats, and sometimes with the Stingray double-tracking and boosting it. (IE: Another One Bites the Dust.) That was one of the earlier songs, so it was most likely the P bass.
Bob played a Gibson EB-3 on the first album.
