1  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Re: Instruments improving with age - truth or myth? on: November 03, 2011, 10:53:34 PM
I am curious about that myself! And I have a 23 year old Sadowsky which I can say sounds amazing!  I am not the original owner of the bass (actually it was made for Steve W. Rabe, founder of SWR), so no idea what it sounded like when it was new. But compared to a Metro I had, the older Sadowsky has a better tone.

But I do know this, I also have a 1972 Fender jazz. I have yet to play a new Fender jazz that sounds anywhere near as good as my 39 year old jazz.

Here is another snip-it using my NYC Standard Fretless.

Hey classic,
Great fretless tone! which strings r u using?

DR Low Riders Nickel Round Wound.

But honestly, that bass would sound great no matter what strings I put on! That bass has the 70's PU spacing which I think really adds to the great fretless tone.

Sadowsky basses sound incredible in the studio. The last CD I worked on I pretty much used my Metro for the whole session. It was SO easy to get a great tone, and I was plugged direct into the board. We were jammin between some takes and it was recorded. Here is a little snip-it of that Metro. Again, direct into the board and no effects.

It was a MV4 that I was using.

Here is another snip-it using my NYC Standard Fretless.

Here is the updated rig! I like nice and simple. Give me a powerful, punchy and clean amp with a very simple straight forward eq section....and you have the Carvin B2000! 2000 Watts of pure clean power. More headroom then I would ever need! So here is my rig top to bottom:

Korg Digital Tuner
Carvin B2000 Amplifier
(2) Avatar B210 Neo Cabinets.

I also have a pedal board with:
Electro-Harmonix XO Micro Q-Tron Envelope Filter
Boss Octave Pedal

From a couple weeks ago....

The old "SWR" bass...

And the Fretless...

And the boys together!

I have a NYC Standard 4 Fretless, and I went with the '70s location for the pickups. I find it gives me a bit more of that mid growl and punch which I like for Fretless. More than the previous Fender Jazz Fretless basses I've owned.

Gettin' funky on Metro! From this weekend....

I've been pretty happy with DR Nickel Low Riders. Have them on all my basses. Was messing around with SIT Rock Brights, but they were missing something.

Roger would be glad to drill some holes and put one on your basses. LOL

That's why I keep my MV4 around for!

But that is pretty nice looking bass you have....even with that plastic thingy! Use it in good health as my Mom would say!

What's the plastic thingy covering up all that beautiful quilt?  Huh

Your bass sound mixes well and the overall tone is to die for!  Nice playing, too!!

The only thing I'd change is either bring the drums and bass up in the mix or bring the guitar down a notch.  The guitars sound like they're popping too far out of the mix as far as loudness. 

Very cool clip!!

Oh, it is totally unmixed....  And it is about 10 minutes long! I just grabbed a quick copy before I left the studio. Thanks for the comments!

I was noodling around with me band mates in the studio and happen to record some of our jamming. I must say I was impressed on how good my new Metro records! The bass was set flat, with just a hair rolloff of the VTC and direct into the board.

You gotta love how these Sadowsky's sound! Be it a NYC or Metro, they are both great!

I'd say HI from the Sunshine State.......But it is raining here in Delray Beach!  Sad

And I said I would never own a Sadowsky!  Undecided

The build quality, feel and sound of my new Metro MV4 is every bit as good as my two NYC basses. Yea, they generally tend to be heavier but there are light ones out there. The one I just bagged is 8.2 lbs....which works for me. I think my Metro is a stunning bass....see for yourself!
