Biggest Bass Drop... EVER!!! #Edit:It's come to my attention that the term “Bass Drop" is not universal so may I add that this thread is asking for members to share their favourite Outstanding Bass moments in songs & has nothing to do with dropping fish*

Recommended Posts

@Ted!  The term 'bass drop' is universal!  :)
And the real answer to the real question is Ripgroove by Double 99.
So let's pack up our bass guitars and go home, because the synth wins...

One of the comments sums it up perfectly -
'2:01 Now that's a drop, the drop of all drops, a real d.r.o.p. Every other so-called drop is just aettention-seeking and meaningless, this is THE DROP."

Cheers!

A. Nother. Ted

You can have synth fun with a bass. Every now and then I have a listen to this to remind myself that a bit of commitment to your instrument never hurts. 

Damn youngsters with their commitment. 😁

I don’t know why this gets me right in the guts in a way that’s exactly right and it was the first thing that popped into my head when I heard the phrase ‘bass drop’. Around 2:55 when the guitar and vocals drop out ...

One of the many PiL/Jah Wobble reasons I love bass. About 1:36 where the entire mix turns bass heavy ...

The opening of this track is bass heaven, it’s like getting into an audio bath ...

Nathan Navarro is good 👍 recently to be seen on Devin Townsend's latest album and tour 🙂

And here's an old one also with the Hot Hand.

Looks skilled, but no, I can't listen to this.

As far as I was aware it's a term normally reserved for electronic/dance music, particularly dubstep. Commonly the bass, and possibly drums, is held back for a verse or a section and then comes back in with a blast. 

But if we're just going for tracks were the bass injects energy into the track then I'll put the live version of Sabotage in. The song does stop and come back in with bass so it's kind of there. 🙂

 

Well, its probably too mainstream and boring, but, Flea immediately injects energy into Aeroplane with his bassline and, my goodness, the full bass solo is funky, full of character and perfectly formed. It's like listening to his best advice on how to be a RHCP.

Funky, underrated, damn tight and, I think one of their best musically.

Not at all boring, dear Mr Toad, not in the slightest... but it's kind of “a given" that Flea is gonna inject something...

Where & what, who knows?...

 

Seriously though, any track that this particular Siphonaptera is a part of WILL very often be pretty darn A-Awesome!!

 

 

 

Oh my!!!....

 

BIG BASS DROP!!!! 1:40 (if you can't wait)

Such a despicable band... Hate to love ‘em!!

If you have to explain yourself you have already lost your audience.

Tell me about it... 

 

Nobody EVER listens to me and I'm constantly having to explain myself...

Most often to the police... :scratch_one-s_head:

The bass intro which starts at just after 5:00 in this version often featured the biggest Phil Bombs, especially during the Wall Of Sound era. Always loved playing this myself in various hippie bands I played in over the 70s and 80s.

Never heard the term 'bass drop' before, but kind of get the idea now someone's used something I recognise as an example.

The band I'm in is 100% Grateful Dead, and the Other One is always popular with us and our audiences.

This is my favourite PiL era Jah Wobble tracks, the bass on this has a simple but massive groove. 

 

And here's a Covid-19 Buy One Get One Free offer, The rhythm guitar on this is actually a distorted 6 string bass according to Peter Hook's Unknown Pleasures book;

Cool. I attended one of the shows that made it onto that album; I believe the Not Fade/Going Down The Road/Not Fade medley is from the show I saw in New York, my first one actually. This is pre-Wall Of Sound, but I saw that in action a number of times as well.

The NFA/GDTRFB/NFA medley is one of my favs, there's some great opportunities for the bass in there! Would have loved to have seen/heard Bear's Wall of Sound in action!!

This has to be one of my fave tracks with a bass drop, it comes in at 38 secs.  Have a decent pair of speakers or cans.

14:09, when it steps up a gear and the bass pedals kick in... Oh my word. Gives me shivers and goosebumps, every time.

      Learn the whole bass line from ‘Right Next Door (Because Of Me)’ by Robert Cray. 
      The original bass line is played by groovemeister ‘Richard Cousins’ and is played with great feel, right in the pocket. 
      FREE Pdf download and backing track included in the video.
      Enjoy!

      Hi all, I'm selling my Alembic MK Signature Deluxe with Coco Bolo top, so here is little about the bass.
      Bass has no scratch, no belt buckle scratch, it's almost as brand new, as you can see from pics.
      Scale: 34"
      String spacing: 19 mm
      Fingerboard: Ebony with abalone
      Top: coco Bolo
      Back: Coco Bolo
      Body: Mahogany with maple and purplehearth as accent woods
      Neck: Maple with Purple Hearth stringers
      Finish: clean gloss with satin finish on the neck
      weight: 5.7 kg (with 5 9v batteries that goes into the bass, 4x for LED)
      Electronics: volume, pan, 2x filters, 2x q switches, 1x LED on/off, 1/4" mono output.
      LEDs are amber and red (check pictures)
      Bass was done in 2015, so it has 2+3 machine heads.
      Bass has original case, papers, everything. New one like this is 17.600 dollars, you can check here on Alembic site my bass is Sig Dlx Coco Bolo.
      This is I think only signature bass in EU that is available with this price. For any questions you can contact me. Here are some pic that justify the whole thing, other pics you can see on my dropbox:
      https://www.dropbox.com/sh/huwja8inhg3pt5e/AAAZ_-yhsAWuU_Zi-cx5C75fa?dl=0
       
      Price says 6000 5600 pounds but it's actually 6500 6300euros, just conversion is different every day.
       
      Also check my feedback page:
