Its been quiet here for bit so...
« on: June 23, 2006, 08:38:28 AM »
I just got some great tones with the five string!

Now, granted, I suck as a bass player so I hope to not offend the real bass players here (I use a pick...I am guitar player, thats my excuse and I'm stickin' to it).

I was tracking a tune I have been messing with for a few months. I plugged the five into my SWR Bass 750, ran direct line from the back of the head and put an AKG D112 about two feet from the four ten cab. All EQs flat (amp, board, etc.,bass had a little nudge for lows and highs) and the head volume on about three or so. With both channels at equal volume on the board, the mix was incredible....perfectly defined low B and all. I actually had the thought "is that me?", only to realize it was the bass.

I am very surprised these basses are not more popular.

....just a note, I tried that same thing with other basses (nice ones) and bass players in the past...it takes a lot more EQ to get close to what the Parker did...I am going to go listen to it now and be proud of my feeble playing on the mighty Parker.
