I have a Sadowsky JJ bass and am considering converting to PJ. Is there a big variation in sound between these two configurations?

Yes. It's not subtle. Very different. I have both.

great. Could you give some details on the difference in tone/sound / Thanks

It's very hard to put into words. For slap style, I think a reasonable idea an be obtained by listening to any Marcus Miller slap J recording vs Wooten's PJ tones on A SHOW OF HANDS.

If they had not told you it, you'd never know the difference.


I am the opposite: they've made a few guitars for me with RW boards and asked me which rosewood I wanted. I told them I really didn't care . They put on Brazilian for the fingerboard but I'd be fine with any rosewood from the crew.

That sounds awfully quick with an alkaline battery. Are you maxing your preamp settings all the time which hypothetically could put more drain on the battery?   Mine lasts always more than a year in my guitars and basses.

Thought I'd post another clip of my build w/flats since it's been awhile.
This is an overlay on my friend Roman Riccio's Elton John cover of "Your Song". He recorded this in his apartment using a high end vocal mic & electric keyboard.
The Bass Settings: Pan @ detent, VTC @ full up, Bass preamp - bass flat & treble @ 20% boost.
Used a Great River ME-1NV preamp & dbx160a comp & recorded the mix direct on an Olympus LS10.
The YouTube upload was set for HD so use the 720p HD setting on the right of the progress bar. That'll give you a bonus resolution of the still shot of the Sad' as well.  Grin  if you hit the full screen setting - the bass looks REAL good @ 720p HD.  (this is not a video)
You may like to check out Roman's original video of it while you're there.

Nice playing. Really nice and sweet.

RIP Dee Murray. He was amazing, esp on GOODBYE YELLOW BRICK ROAD CD/LP.

Roger and the crew make changes for  a reason.

There must be something to it albeit might be quite subtle.

I asked Roger about this and while I was on the phone these gentleman appeared at my door:

Hi

Im just wondering if anyone could tell me when sadowsky first started making 5 string basses? I imagine it was in the 80's??

Smiley
I think you are correct. I'm sure Roger will chime in but I know it was before 1990. I first visited Roger's shop in 1990 and the five had been out for quite some time.

I believe the 5 became more popular at that time.  One major reason was to accompany the keyboard synth players who were playing notes below the register of the 4 string bass.
