Jazz Bass Pickups (no backing)

Jazz Bass Pickups (with drums)

Thanks to Neill Dodd for this array of sound clips. There are 2 sets, on the left with the guitar on its own, and with a low level drum track  on the right . Each of the 2 sets covers all 3 basic pickup configurations, including the tone control fully on and off in each case.
The guitar is a Jazz Bass style with round-wound strings. Recording was by Direct Injection into Cubase through a Yamaha mixer.
Thanks to Phil and the Hoochie Coochie band for their track Burning Inside (Chilli Mix) featuring a very 'muscular' bassline from Phil.
As he said, "Because I was going 'straight to desk', I'm using an Ampeg plug-in for the amp simulation.....MEATY!!"

And a live clip;

Thanks to Mark Shepherd for his selection of Jazz Bass clips. They were conditioned through a Zoom B2.1u multi-effects pedal and recorded with a Yamaha Pocketrak hand-held recorder. EQ was set in the middle for all frequencies, and both guitar volumes and tone set to maximum.
Particularly check out the excellent 'One of these days' track 2 cover!

Thanks to Kazuki Takahashi (over in Canada) for a very fluid bass cover of Charlie Puth's "We Don't Talk Anymore". And what a cool guitar!
