Clean patches sound buzzy but that's my setup as I usually play fast overdriven punk with a pick. You can appreciate my kind of real life tone in the CMP+OD samples, which are made for this recording on a Zoom MS60B, using the 166 comp. emulation + T21 S-Amp emulation. Very close to what I get out of a SansAmp RBI I also use regularly.
SOME THINGS I HAD TO TUNE WHEN ASSEMBLING THIS BASS
1. Body and headstock shape lacquered with water base polyurethane varnish, some fine sanding in-between and some final polishing.
2. I put a thin shim of wood in between the neck joint, towards the bridge, so to angle it back just enough for the bridge to stand at a normal height. Had to lower it a lot at first, saddle screws would come out too much, and hurt.
3. I widened and deepened the nut slots so I could string this DAEB, with Warwick Reds Nickel, .040 5-str set, using .060/.080/.100/.130.
After gigging this bass I went REVERSE P. Here's a link to same samples but on the REV-P configuration...
Then I also added a J pickup, there's a samples video for that too...
