Here is a sound demo to give you an idea of what it sounds like. The tone is just rolled off a little on the bass. The signal chain is Bass > 2 Notes Le Bass (clean channel) > Genz Benz Shuttle 3.0 (set flat) > Ashdown 2x10. I used two microphones panned hard left and right so you can listen to one side or the other to see if there is any difference - left channel is an Audio Technica AT2020 and the right channel is a Shure SM57. The only eq is a 2 octave roll off at 40Hz as this bass has a lot of low end! Let me know what you think.

Nice sounding bass! Good warm lows with a nice clear "mwah" on the high notes.
Well done!

Yeah that's a really nice sounding bass Nev! Awesome job!
After all that hard work it must be really pleasing to have it sounding that good.

I am really happy with the way it sounds and plays! It is a bit boomy in the recording - I wanted to keep the eq flat, but I think the mics have enhanced the bottom end a little as it isn't boomy through the amp.

That looks fantastic! You've done such a great job, Nev.

I'll have a listen later. Hopefully not 7 months later ;)

Thanks John. I’m very happy with how it has turned out. And now I understand your love of a good P bass. Just takes some people a little longer than others :lol:

Yeah the p thing is funny. It may not sound as good (does to me though;)) by itself but I think it really sits well in the mix
