Would you mind doing another noodly video or even just a private audio recording, where you do some varied finger techniques? Play a bass line, doe some staccato and muting type stuff. Maybe some slides. I know from your videos that bass gets a great piano tone. But I'm trying to hear what else it can do!


Just to clarify: you want to hear just the SCP pickup?

A little bit of center detent is nice for contrast. But, pretty much all SCP . A 75-ish percent blend would be great, too. I do that sort of blend a lot.


Here's some more noodling. All neck pickup except at 0.53 where I dialed it towards the center detent (but not totally centered). Bass, treble, and mids were all set flat.

Bass Viking,

This thread offers 100% win x 9000! Fantastic demos, killer song selection, and your video production is really useful for visualizing how technique works with this particular bass. The only complaint I have is all the GASsing your review and demos are generating! :lol:

Thanks, man. Superior stuff. Truly.

Thanks man, I appreciate your kind words. However, I cannot be held responsible for any GAS generated by this thread!

Hey, thanks a lot for the special request! Definitely helpful on isolating the character of that pickup. Its pretty grindy!
