?How can i replicate this sound


Recommended Posts

It sounds like a P bass, played superbly, recorded in an expensive studio and produced by someone who knew what they were doing. As for re-creating that sound live, how much do you want to spend?

I agree. P bass. Tone rolled off a little. Probably straight into the board. Bit of compression. 
 

maybe, just maybe some light muting going on. A lightweight and narrow bit of foam maybe. 

Right thats it ,im in the market for a p bass,Flat wounds??

Dynasty, Shalamar, Lakeside, The Whispers… all came out of the Solar Records stable so it’ll be Leon Sylvers again on bass and production.

In fact pretty much exactly the same musicians involved all round I’d guess, including the fantastically named Wardell Potts Jnr on drums.

I’m not hearing a P bass - I think it’s a stingray with flats. 

I concur. There's definitely something Rayish going on in that tone.

Leon Sylvers played a Rickenbacker most of the time if the internet is to be believed. Beast of a producer/bass player. 

Someone on talkbass said he see him live and he was playing a Rick 4001 with flats and mutes on

I’ve been doing a bit of digging, this through headphones sounds very similar ?

 

That’s definitely Leon bass duties there. Superb.

I think this is one of those cases where the sound is more about his technique than the bass itself per se. So I'd say any bass, probably with flats, with a middly EQ will sound pretty close if you can get that style under your fingers.

[Edit]: Just remembered that I saw this video the other day which should be helpful

To hell with what bass he's playing, I just can't wait to tell my band that we'll be doing synchronised dance steps while we play our next pub ...

I think the outfit would suit you Douglas , I’ve still got those flares 😁

I can just imagine the dance steps behind the toms. He/she has little else to do. xD
