Hey, tnk you very much. Maybe you are the famous Maurilio Mina, Smiley thank you very much for the replay, you are always kind, we have talked months ago by mail about some pickup, as usually, ahaha. Yes, someone told me that Roger has used Bartolinis in those years, but obviously i'm not sure about it, i can say that the sound is so sweet and fantastic for slap and pop and when i solo neck or bridge pick up i do not ear any hum noise. That's all i know. I would really like to know something more about it. About the strings the bass have on the Ernie Ball purple cover, very very soft, and not so much character, that's good but even not so good for B string which need a little bit more tension. I'll try the Sadowsky Black if have more tension. Cheers from Italy. Smiley
2  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / New here from Italy, my first Sadowsky NYC 5 - 1996 on: June 30, 2014, 06:17:20 AM
Hi everybody i'm Roberto a bass player from Italy and i would like to share my happiness about my first Sadowsky. After 20 years of bass playing, concerts, lessons, kilometers along the Tuscany and the whole middle Italy countries i've finally decided to buy my DREAM BASS, a very nice Sadowsky NYC 5 string produced on 1996. It is a used instrument and kept in a very nice condition after all these years. A wonderful bass, swamp ash body, quilted maple top, maple fingerboard and neck. The previous owner has updated this baby with the VTC so now is really full optional Smiley. Very light body, this swamp ash is very very light, the whole is really balanced as the strings output, the sound is so pure and clear, every note ring has they must ring, long and clear. I own 12 basses, from Fender JB 77, to Precision Fullerton, G&L, Steinberger MMan and on and on, but when u wear a Sadowsky, you cannot believe to what you are feeling. Of course is not a bass good for all season IMO, but i can cover many kind of music i'm playing with the bands and artists. I usually add few bass and treble to the flat tone because i like the organic wood sound without adding extra frequencies. One thing i have to say; the sound is so so sweet and soft even if fucused and it cut really through the mix, but I've thought that the sound could be more aggressive and with more string attack due to the ash body, maybe is due to the kind of pickups used in the 90's, would be nice to know if someone really know about the pickup producer at that era and which is the difference between the actual pickup used, along the years has been used different pickups as i know. Anyway is a wonderful instrument and i hope to buy another Sadowsky soon, maybe a Modern 5-24 with ebony fingerboard! Cheers everybody and hope u like my new baby!! Smiley I wanna say thank you to Roger for the love he bring on his work…every day!! PS: Sorry for my bad english Smiley
