I've been messing around with recording these two basses for a couple of days for comparison, and thought that some here might be interested in hearing this clip. Thanks to the magic of recording, I've got the silver Valenti PJ five string on the left side alernating licks with my Fender USA Deluxe P V on the right side. I've recorded them over a drum loop to give a better perspective of how they might sit in a mix. Basically, there are four, four bar riffs. Low register, middle register, and high register fingerstyle. Then, there's a slap riff. You've got to be careful with Fenders these days, but that doesn't mean that they don't make good ones. This one has an alder body and maple/maple neck. It is, IMO, their most underrated model. The Valenti uses the same woods and also uses D'Addario medium light strings. The Valenti is panned somewhat to the rear pickup with no added eq. the Fender is also panned a little to the bridge pickup, but has the bass eq boosted a little. I didn't use an amplifier. After all the talking we do about woods, finishes, pickups, and whatever, I always find it interesting to really hear these instruments.
