How do I get good Jazz tones out of my Jazz Bass? Do I drop any of the levels, or the mids? Thanks
well for the Jaco-ish sound i solo the bridge pickup and play with fingers towards the bridge.
i keep the EQ flat and the tone knob turned up about halfway.
that should give you the sound you are looking for.
(i have two fender jazz basses and a fender bassman amp as well)
I play a Jazz with both pickups on full, and tone about half way, playing over the neck pickup. That's a nice low growly tone, and it's sometimes cool to solo the neck pickup.
Have fun with you're new bass
lucky bastard, i wish a had an ampeg 8*10" cab + SVT-2PRO under the christmas three, but according to the size, it's not my lucky day.
Anyway, congrats on the new bass and amp. I have a mexican fender Jazz, en play mostly with the 2 PU's
When I play J's, I always keep both volume at full, and the tone at full.
But sometimes, I lighten up on the neck p'up so it gets jazzier.
You will get alot of different opinions try 'em all. I have my bridge pick up on full, my neck pick up about 90%. The tone at 50% I usually finger pick at the bridge pick up or halfway between the two pick ups. Sometimes I finger pick up by the neck when I want a duller thicker sound. usually on ballads.
