What kind of bass is the guy using?
How to set up for a sound like this?
That would be a Warwick Streamer...and the 'sound of wood'.
Thats Stuart Zender. I believe he uses a Warwick Streamer with a PJ config. Maybe you should tell something about what your own gear for advice about the setup?
Edit: ah, beat to it.
Thanks man, I'm not very into configs, so: PJ? Meaning both P and J pu's? How does he mix them?
I have a G&L L2500 ( 2 humbuckers, series or parallel or seperate, active/passive) + PJB Briefcase (5-band eq).
I prefer a woody sound, but I believe I am searching for more 'body', sonority, IYKWIM.
I already tried raising the low mids.
That tone has as much to to with the sharp attack of the player's technique as it does the gear he's using. I am not sayin' you could duplicate it on any bass, but if you don't use the right technique you'll never get there.
It's a combination of playing over the bridge pickup and a very clean left hand.
I play a twin humbucking bass too, and to emulate this tone I set up single coil, pan all the way back to the bridge, add a bit of bass boost, and use the extra tension at the bridge to help keep my plucking super tight and accurate.
Right, I already figured out accury/plucking at the bridge. Gonna try the rest as well.
Thanks for all your time and help guys.
