His sound with Herbie is unbelievable.. let me know!
I remember an article/interview with him years ago in Bass Player mag. I recall that he used Polytone Amps originally, but I think he used four of them, with a separate pickup for each string going to each amp. Not 100% sure on this. His pickups were custom made Hi-A brand (which was Bartolini's original brand, later changed to his surname). Or something like that.
Later I know he played Through an EBS Fafner amp, and was using a Neuser Cloudburst bass. What he played with HH was probably that earlier setup.
indeed, jackson had an incredible tone on those live clips that have surfaced. one one clip i Think he had some of those early bose prosound boxes, because herbie was endorsing them for awhile. in another clip he looks like he's using a pair of B15S's. one of favorite players ever! paul jackson is, like alphonso johnson and the much under-appreciated michael henderson, a completely original thinker. as badass as it gets
Thank you, one of the most incredible clips Ive ever seen. Thanks!
WOW, here's a page dedicated to Geraldine, the heavily modded Tele Bass PJ used on the first Headhunters album. holy ****
that's awesome and very interesting.....I had no idea that bass (Geraldine) was so complicated....would love to play that.
that 3pin xlr goes into the box, which among other things probably has a di transformer built into it. pretty damn cool idea for that era
Ahhhh really nice bass, reallly ****ing nice
