    This is a pretty typical jazz fusion sound for his melody and leads. What is it?

    Just sounds like some compression. I bet someone will chime in with more knowledge about the more subtle effects like eq or preamp he's using

    Take this with a grain of salt since I'm not in an ideal listening setting

    Yeah, in terms of effects, I'm not hearing anything. No chorus, nothing obvious like that. Clearly there is typical studio stuff happening, like eq, compression, etc.

    You guys certainly have magic fingers that I don't possess. There is no reverb/delay or something on it?

    I mean, maybe a tiny bit to add depth, but it's subtle and has less then the backing track

    I've been trying to learn a relatively simple song that he plays on and he does have magical fingers. His vibrato and the way he makes a note sing is incredible.

    This is one of my favorite pieces of music and definitely worth watching:

    To be fair, the mic placement is creating some natural reverb on it

    I know he has toneprints available for the Spectracomp, Corona Chorus, Phaser, and Flashback Delay Pedals by tc electronic.

  9. There was also his signature preamp pedal, the Yamaha NE-1, now out of production.


    When he was here recently I didn't see the NE-1 pre-amp in his setup, but it may have been hidden from view.

    Rullywow has a PCB that is based on the NE-1 circuit, a near clone.

    Schalltechnik_04 has a complete kit, the NE_04, that clones the NE-1.

    Just saw this a month or so ago. I love how they feed off each other, call and responses... just pure awesome.

    It's still there. You just don't see it. The NE-1 circuitry has since been incorporated into his signature Yamaha bass.

    I had the NE-1. IT was cool. A guy that I played with worked at GC at the time. They were $100. He looked it up and said, "I'll give it to you for your birthday". "$100 for my birthday is a bit high, don't you think?". He said, "Nah. Its only $12 for me". How could I say no . . . ? ;)

    Pretty much the pedal is a mid level with frequency control. Heck, I had one on an Ibanez BTB. :D

    That dude has talent and chops to spare.
  15. Thanks for the info!

    You're welcome!

    I'm not a big Yamaha bass fan myself. Nothing against them. Just not the sort of bass I usually look at when I'm out shopping. But I got the chance to try out a BBNE2 bass, and I have to admit it's one impressive instrument. You can get just about anything you can think of out of them. (Or at least that I could think of.) And they play like a dream. You could do a lot worse for the same asking price.
