Examples of great P tone.

Recommended Posts

You'll undoubtedly have seen Scott Devine on the old youtoob, but I always all in love with precision basses when I hear him play one, then play one myself and fall out of love with them just as quick.

I like the sound of this lowly Squire Classis Vibe and love the way this bassline builds up from very simple to a classic walking line.

Oh my word...Dat Growl...and a good example of EQ-ing for the band sound: I love Billy's tone in the band, but solo'd it's very harsh.

Absolutely true.  I'm a huge fan of Billy Sheehan, and I've got an Attitude 3 & Helix too.  I got a great Billy-alike patch created & shared by a chap called Jon Willis on the Yamaha Attitude Facebook page.

You're absolutely right, solo'd the sound seems WAY over the top.  BUT - when you use it in the right song context, it sounds AMAZING.

John Decon has definitely produced some of my fave P-bass tones. As he has already been mentioned, I'll add Peter Cetera, my closest second.

P-Tone, you say? GAS-inducing, you say? This is track that made me pick up a bass...15 seconds in... 😁

 

This was THE sound that made me fall for the bass. Great track "hanging around" and I felt so pleased that a while after learning "Peaches" I learned how to play "hanging around"
and "Princess of the Streets" - great intro on that last track! In fact, JJ's bass sounds fantastic on the whole album. After an absence from playing (for ages) a return to this album gave me P bass GAS all over again
Never heard a P bass sound quite so good :) :)

unfortunately that is the only P bass that sounds like that

yep sound great but its a distorted bass sound, and that's not for everyone. 

I have a Fender P and its ok, but not my favorite bass sound, my jazz and spector sound better.

How about some 'Sir Horace?' 😀

 

Great tune great band, reminds me of being 7 year old listening to this on the street corners of council estates, with my older sister older cousins and friends.

QOTSA live, what a disappointment.

showing haircuts, liveless.

They seem to be all or nothing. I’ve seen them twice - the first time I thought some roadies had walked into the stage and played an impromptu set, the second time was life-affirmingly good.

I really like the bass tone on this album

I'm beginning to think my ideal tone would be a picked P, but played with my fingers

One of the ultimate P bass tones from John Wetton ( RIP )  through HiWatt guitar amps, so he said.  Live,  , well back in the early 70's anyways,  2 x 100 watt heads

Get under your headphones. This is awesome
