Re: Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat

Im a bit jammed on this song, I've never really played much Jazz type stuff before and the score doesn't have this part in it (where it goes all Jazz/waltz) and I think it sounds awsome. I was wondering if anyone would be able to shed some light on this tune for me by quickly tabbing it out or telli...

Re: Pre amps?

I used to use my Sansamp as a pre-amp straight into a 600w PA amp, sounded pretty good.

Essentially what a preamp does is take your low level instrument signal and turns it into a line level signal.

Re: LPB-1

its a clean boost. but one that darkens it, and adds quite a lil bit of bass. you may be just clipping your amp too hard. I agree, I think boosting your clean as such is boosting your amp to crunch a bit try lowering your input gain some more and seeing as you like the clean sound make sure the boo...

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat

Hi everyone, I recently volunteered to play bass for the next local Variety Theatre Ashburton production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. Just got the bass score and music and man it sounds like it's going to be a hoot to play, so many different genres! In the orchestra we have drum...

Re: Rusty pick up, how do you treat them?

Already do the post-gig wipe and use silica bags. I'm not concerned that there are a few rust spots there now, I'm really just after a way to stem the flow so to speak. It seems a bit weird that people suggest that the way to get rid of the rust is to sand off a thin layer of the chrome that's on t...

Hahaha...

Deffinately don't sand off the chrome!!
I meant use those grean pot cleaning pad things just to remove the rust because rust invites more rust to the party.

Re: Rusty pick up, how do you treat them?

Hey man, I have a similar issue. The pickup poles on Stingrays are chromed and over time I have chipped some of this chrome off and they are showing a bit of rust now. I gave them a slight buff with one one those green abrasive scotch pads, nothing too serious and that removed the rust and then i sp...

Re: EQ/COMPRESSING bass on digital recordings - TIPS please

Hmmm, it should already sound good in relation to itself and it's a common misconception that mastering can "fix" a mix. The eq part of mastering is to ensure translation across any stereo it gets played on, it's common to kill the subsonic low end and most modern masters are pretty toppy, but if t...

Re: Boss Overdrive

I agree with Timi and Mark on this one. Not a subtle effect at all really, pretty full on distortion.

Re: EQ/COMPRESSING bass on digital recordings - TIPS please

Thats what the Mastering proccess is for! A mastering engineer will make a track sound even and 'flat' using EQ, compression and his ears so that it sounds good in general, if it sounds bad on a certain stereo etc its because that stereo boosts certain frequencies to appeal to certain listeners and ...
