What do you prefer Will Power or Quarter Pounder?
willpower.more power and thicker tone.
wait what kinda bass are we putting it in?
I believe its a Highway One P Bass, dunno... Will Powers are awesome , one big plus is that they have covered pole pieces so you dont have to worry about your strings touching them and giving you that ugly "pop" sound. The WP can get really aggressive, but tr can also go smooth. They really cute through the mix because they have a lot of mids, they are not as hot as the 1/4 pounders though, I've heard that the 1/4s are really hot, which I think is bad.
You can get some pretty descent sounds out of the Will Power, trust me, Sheehan uses it too.
the poles on the quarter pounders are don't reach above the cover so your strings just can't touch them either
For me the Dimarzio Model P. But that's me. Other than that I'd probably take the QP.
^ The Will Power is bassically an updated version of the Model P
I have the Will Power Middle in one P, and the Quarter Pounder in another.
WPM is strung with EXL-220 rounds.
QP is strung with Rotosound rounds, model unknown.
I find the QP fraught with semi-obnoxious harmonics, and not as pleasant sounding as the WPM. I attribute this to strings more than anything else.
I have some Bass Tones Recorded Here that you can wade through for samples and comparisions.
The WPM and QP are both recorded with the same high quality technique: Countryman DI into a Sonar workstation. The older recordings were not done that way.
^ Cool, I've never heard the QP before until now, and I expected something better, the Will Power sounds better.
thx everbody!! think the Model P right choice for me thx!
If feel dumb, I thought this was about dieting!
quarter pounders have a pretty serious midrange honk. It wasn't for me.
LOL HAHA I gettit. Probly one of the funniest TB posts ive seen
