So after "the last bass I'll ever need".... [UPDATE]

Recommended Posts

"IT" has arrived.

Crappy round wounds were installed on it. This bad boy needs flatwounds. On order.

No more room for guitars of basses now.

Or drums.

Or amps.

Make room silly....just get rid of that old wotchacallit one that nobody has ever heard of anyway.

The Geriatric , wait... that's not right......

Hmmm...did it begin with A ?

Allergic?

No....

Anarchic. No that doesn't sound right either....

I think it might be Alum....something or other?

Aplumdick...?

Whatever. You know the one I mean...

Many people don't even have one of those anyway .....gotta be a good reason for that.

Poor Bapu........It's like nobody ever told him that they all sound the same......

Actually here is a real world example to "disprove" that theory.

A few years back we saw The Moody Blues. It just so happens we were in third row right in front of John Lodge. He played a Fender Jazz Bass. His tone was exceptional (to me). Sadly about 2/3 into the set he broke a string. They swapped him out with what looked to me like an exact same Fender Jazz bass (and why not). From that moment on no matter what he did the tone was "S H ! T E". I'll assume both basses were strung with the same brand and age of strings (or maybe not).

So not even two "exact" models sound the same, why would a Gibson Bass (known for it distortive qualities) sound like a '50 Fender P-Bass etc. etc. etc.?

Paulo,  punctuation mean everything for example

Fbom Fbom Fbom

in it’s proper use would be 

F-bom, F-bom, F-bom

 

suttle differences change the meaning….

Well...  You never really thought someone would rescue Cakewalk and give it away for free while you were still alive did you?
