Hi! It seems like a long time since the last "guess which pickup I recorded" kind of thread, and since I've been wanting to do a benchmark of my pickups for a long time, I figured now would a good time to contribute. I found these threads to be one of the most valuable resources when it comes to choosing my gear so let's add so more samples to the mix. Methodology: I've mounted all of my pickups on my bass and set up a minimal but decent recording environment on a small room. Each take was recorded separately, playing a two octaves G major scale pizzicato (I wanted to keep it as short and neutral as possible). I did some very minimal EQing and gain adjustments in order to normalize the tracks before recording, but just slightly and there is no postprod at all. Please forgive my sloppy timing, I recorded those clips quick and dirty, without a metronome. There is also a rattle from time to time, coming from a loose screw on a PU jack I think. Perhaps I should have double checked the setup more carefully before pressing the REC button. Anyways, I hope this will still be useful to some of you. Recording Gear: Garage Band on iPad (with iRig inteface) Headway EDB-1 preamp (Flat EQ, 5Mohms input for piezos) Behringer Xenyx 802 mixer for mics Bass: Shen SB-200 willow (3/4 flatback) Strings: Thomastik Spirocore Weich (E&A), Pirastro Oliv (D&G) Pickups & Mics: Fishman Full Circle (threads up) David Gage Realist Wood DIY Schatten EP-01 soundboard transducer mounted on a cedar wood piece Ehrlund Contact Mic with its preamp Ehrlund Contact Mic with the EDB1 Geoff004 RS Mic, treble side (modded so it's mounted on the bridge with a tuner clip) CAD GLX-1200 Cardiod Mic - Less than 2 feet away from the treble side My usual sound, which is a blend of #1,#5 and #7. The audio clips can be found on my Soundcloud. They are unlabeled for now: I'll let you guess which is which first and then I'll reveal the results in about a week or so. Are you able to list them all, and which one is your favorite?
