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 ...

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

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!!

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.

      So how long have you been playing bass, and why did you start?
      I think I started playing bass around when I was around 16 or so, a couple of years after I had started to learn how to play guitar, which makes the time I have played bass about 27 years by now, most of that time having had bass as my main instrument of choice, although having continued to play guitar on the sideline all along.
      It all started one day at band rehearsal where I by pure incident picked up the bass players bass and started playing, fell in love with the sound and feel of playing it, right there on the spot, and soon after answered an add by a drummer and a guitarist/vocalist seeking a bass player for their band.
      After an audition session I got accepted as their new bass player, and even got a lot of praise from the drummer for my capabilities on bass, who was a skilled musician that knew how to sight read music, and both played piano and guitar on the sideline, beside drums, (the same two people, that drummer and that guitarist/vocalist, though in a new different band, that I much later since recorded a 2 track Single and a 4 track EP with, which were released on a small independent record label some of our friends owned, before I eventually decided to leave that band, much to my later regret, though I did get to contribute to a few of the compositions of their later full length album, even if not recording anything for it).
      The first few months with that first original band I didn't even own my own bass yet, but had to borrow one.
      But soon after I decided to put my focus on playing bass over playing guitar.
      For some reason playing bass just came more natural to me, the instrument just felt right in my hands, and as it turned out I must have been thinking much more like a bass player than a guitarist all along.

      Hi all, 
      SALE PRICE: 600, 500 480 - SHIPPED. DETAILS BELOW. 
      TRADE ITEMS: No longer interested in trade items. 
      I'm listing my Warwick RockBass Star Bass 5 String for sale or for trade for particular items! I'm not quite sure the value of the RockBass model currently, but I'm aware of recent listings, as well as the basses value new from Andertons and Thomann etc. I bought the bass last year from someone who had looked after the bass very well, and hadn't had chance to gig the bass. I'd bought it for a country project, but it didn't work out, and in the end never got gigged - as such, it's been sat in my studio for the past 12 months untouched, mainly in it's hard case. It had fresh strings and a set up at the time, and of course has been kept well at the studio. The only damage to report was made by the previous owner, and is on the lower heel right at the top. It is a very very small paint chip, but of course is worth mentioning. 
      In the current situation, contact-less pickup is of course accepted, or I can courier this, either hard case or soft case. 
      The bass works and sounds perfect, electronics are in order and plays great. 
      Thanks!

      Just out of curiosity, anyone who also uses an always (or almost always) on 1 octave up effect to emulate an 8 string bass, or a real 8 (or 10) string "octave" bass as your main?
      Currently my main bass is an Ibanez GSRM20 Mikro Bass with just a DiMarzio Model P pickup wired directly to the output jack socket, tuned 2 half steps above E standard tuning, as in F#1 to A2, which I run through an always on TC Electronic Sub'N'Up Mini octaver pedal,. which is set with a 1 octave up blended with the clean signal.
      Actually manged, thanks to the EQ'ing of the input signal that is fed to the octave engine and the processed output signal that the Toneprint editor allows for, to make the octave up tone sound pretty realistic without any digital artifacts whatsoever, just using the stock polyphonic octaver, on which the octave up signal has as good as perfect tracking and very short, almost unnoticeable, latency, and in my opinion already without utilizing the Toneprint editor sounds much more natural than for example the EHX POG pedals, which while also tracking as good as perfect with very short latency (and for some reason lower latency on the octave down signal than the Sub'N'Up), , has a somewhat organ or synth like quality to it.
      I use it as the main instrument for a progressive psychedelic stoner rock solo project I am working on at the moment, which instrumentation I plan predominantly to consist of just bass, drums/percussion and vocals.
