Ok, I'm a really bad player, I'm 15, haven't been playing two years yet and my bass is far better than I am... But incase anyone's curious, I did some sound samples of my Warwick Corvette 4 STD... It's passive, with a bubinga body, and set me back about £400 brand new including shipping from the US. In each of these samples, I move from the neck pickup, to the center, to the bridge pickup: Clean Slap Clean Finger Clean Pick These are the same as above, but I've added some EQ, compression, and in a couple of them some chorus. FX Slap FX Fingerstyle FX Pick This sample is just a ska bassline I wrote the other day and had handy on my PC: Clean Ska All samples were recorded with the tone up full, going direct into my sound card. The last sample went through my Sansamp, but all of the others just plugged into the mic input on my sound card. Edit: Ok! Thanks guys - You need to right click and the save the files to play them, sorry! Oh, and here's a piccy!
