New lockdown vid track "Sink" with pounding Precision!

Recommended Posts

Here's a new lockdown svid track, "Sink".

Pounding Precision (a parts build by me,  played by John) and resonating Rickenbackers (played by me) abound...

Social distancing and minumum use of loo paper rules were carefully observed.

Hope you're being creative too...

Really like that, great recording and really good sounds on all of the individual instruments - that Precision sounds awesome. The song and performance reminded me a touch of REM.

Great bass sound, I like the song, and as has been said, the air in the mix works really well...

@rze99 - great bass tone. What was your full signal chain to deliver - in particular any pedals / preamps?

That is fab. Excellent bass and guitar tones and I really like the space in the track.

 

Thank you for the encouragement I'm glad you like the tones. I just use the tones I like.

...cheap as chips stuff to be honest.

The bass is parts build and the pickups in it are Fender MIM Player from 2018.

The bass "amp" is simply and old  Line6 X3 Pod. I have a tone that I set there years ago and tweak it. It is basically the stock Ampeg tone with some compressor. I think it is great. You gan get them dirt cheap now.  Basically for this kind of track I aim for  Bruce Foxton tone and then tweak it. I don't have a bass amp at all!

The other thing I use (but not on this track) is a Sansamp Leeds pedal -  also not expensive and works brilliantly into a desk.  You can get the Ox tone - if you can play well enough.

The guitar was recorded using the Yamaha THR100HD Vox AC30 tone with a Wampler Ego Comp compressor for squish and boost.  That head is amazing - not a bad sound in there and it records perfectly with zero set up. Out the back into the desk done deal.

The recording was done with Reason 11.

Brilliant - thanks!

I thought I detected a touch of Ampeg / Sansamp + P Bass.  @dannybuoy has just got himself a Leeds and is also raving about it, having persuaded me to get a VT Bass DI beforehand - lol! (No regrets btw - the VTDI is an excellent pedal!).

You guys mainly do original material? And gig in and around London? If so, be great to come and see you in action post lock down!

thanks. To gig would be....F****g great. I so miss it. But... complicated.

We have (had) a gigging band called Bittermoon playing sort of 70s, 80s, and 90s Alt pop rock/Americana covers (yes including REM) + our tracks,  but the wonderful drummer and has a very young family and very ill Mum & Dad AND runs his own business AND lives in Oxfordshire - he would do a gig at a push but he's got his hands very full and so he's "not playing much right now". The other guitar player has a critically sick wife and is dealing with that dreadful stuff. 

The "drumming" on this stuff is me programming  patterns with some live playing percussion.  I started off on drums when I was 9 and I still play a bit. I'm very fussy about drummers. I've played with fantastic drummers and I'm spoiled. Which explains why we don't have one.

So the band is resting restlessly and just John "Scoorieboy" and me going a bit lockdown mad... But yeah I'd love to be playing live.  When / if we get it back going I'll shout out here.

      Hi all,
      For sale only (no trades), my beautiful 1966 Fender Precision in fantastic condition, all original (as far as I am aware) with original finish and original Fender hard case (including Fender catalogue).
      This is a player’s bass, not a case queen, but has been extremely well cared for by previous owners as well as by me.
       It has light signs of wear and some dings as you’d expect a 54 year old to have. I’ve gigged the bass extensively in the time I’ve owned it and always kept/transported it in a Hiscox LiteFlite case, not the OHSC.
      Apart from some minor body chips and scratches there are a couple of small dents in the neck behind frets 1-3 but these aren’t noticeable under the hand. There’s also some lovely light checking to the lacquer on the headstock and rear of the body. I’ve tried to capture these as best I can with my phone camera.
      Pups, pots, wiring and solder joints all look all original. The pups are still bonded to the black foam and backing plate. No dating is evident and I didn’t want to risk separating them to try and find out.
      Pots are stamped 6618 which I believe is week 18 of 1966 (kindly correct me if I’m wrong).
      The date stamp on the neck is partially faded and obscured by red ink but this is how it was when I bought it. To my eyes it reads 5 MAY 66 C. The neck is classic P chunky, solid and straight with a fully functioning truss rod and reverse tuners on the headstock.
      Beautiful striping on the rosewood fingerboard and there’s plenty of life left in the slim frets. The bass is currently strung with LaBella flats.
      Comfortably light, on the digital bathroom scales it comes in at 8.6 lbs / 3.9 kg.
      The case has a few dings and a couple of smallish rips but inside is clean and plush and all catches and hinges function (I don’t have the keys though). It came to me with a 1967-68 Fender catalogue inside which is in lovely condition and a really nice piece of history.
      This is a beautiful example of a mid-60’s P bass with a classic full burpy sound that sits so well in the band mix.
      Now... I know there are some real vintage aficionados and experts on the forum so in the spirit of openness and honesty I want to mention 3 things;
      Control knobs. These are more than likely the originals but still look brand new. I have no way of knowing as these were the knobs it came to me with but I am just saying as someone pointed it out to me.
      Ashtrays. Both are in really good clean condition and I believe are the originals. They show light scratching close up which doesn’t come out in the photos. Inside the bridge cover there is no evidence left of any foam mutes but there is some surface roughness in that area.
      E string tuner. Fully operational and stable but a bit stiffer than the other 3. I’ve had it apart and lubricated it, can’t see anything wrong, so it’s a bit better but wanted to point this out to potential buyers. 
      I’m offering this bass for sale only (no trades thank you) at a competitive price based on what I’ve seen similar condition basses advertised by reputable dealers.
      I’m happy to ship within UK only at the buyer’s expense or arrange personal socially-distanced collection within a reasonable radius (location KT18).
      No EU/overseas transactions due to CITES restrictions still in force around Brazilian rosewood.
      (More photos are available if needed).
      Many thanks for any interest!
      David

      Weight 4,3kg. There are couple of scratches and dings on the body but the bass is in great condition at all. This bass sounds really amazing!!!
