identify the bass from the clip;
I have no guess as to what it is, but I want some of it!
It sounds like a Fender Precision (type) bass with flatwound strings* being played with a pick, and the tone control at about the halfway point. The strings are being plucked just in front of the pickup.
That's what I'd guess.
I could be wrong. When do we find out what it is?
This is so exciting!
* I originally said rounds, then changed my mind.
I'll double that Pbass type, with a pick. Quite trebley..
this is a P bass;
Hmmm. The first one just sounds like a brighter version of the second one.
You ain't foolin' with them amp settings, is you?
Instead of basses, I'd like to try U.S. Presidents for $500, please.
Played with a pic.
Possibly active? Just guessing from the extra little bit of honk.
the first one is my Dearmond Jetstar Special, with the neck coil of the Kent Armstrong MM pickup I shoehorned in there soloed.
I was hoping someone might say Rick, as the coil is in about the same spot as the bridge p/up on a Rick 4001.
maybe if it had a neck p/up too....
I was surprised you thought it was strung with flats, and with the tone turned down- it's actually a boiled set of rounds, with the controls bypassed.
the second one is my Warmoth homemade P, boiled rounds, in controls bypass.
I might have to look at getting a DI box instead of running through a mic channel of my Tascam 414.
BTW. the riff is from "down in the tubestation at midnight" by the Jam.
I was 100% correct all along. After I edit my original post and delete this one, no one will be the wiser.

i woulda said ric with rounds if i had the chance that was what i was thinking.
To me the firs clip sounds like my Roscoe Beck V
recorded "live" via cellphone (sorry .
Now, the second clip is like one step on the way to a P-bass played with a pick (IMO).
Short scale. Single-coil pickups. Maybe a Bass VI or a baritone?
Hmm. Sounds a little twangy for a long-scale bass.
After listening to the clip again i find a little "Stingray vibe" in there somewhere.
