1  General Category / Sadowsky Forum / Sadowsky bass at White House performance? on: November 07, 2010, 12:28:25 AM
Do my eyes deceive me or is that a Sadowsky bass behind the lovely & talented Esperanza, at the White House event honoring Stevie Wonder in 2009?

Help!  I've fallen into another Talkbass thread and I can't get out!!!! Shocked

Well, let's see:

Musicians who like your basses: Marcus, Will, Tal, Juraj, Hugh McDonald, Lee Sklar, Tom Hamilton, and about 6 dozen other established pros.

TB'ers who don't like your basses:  ... uh...  I don't recognize any of those names, but ... rock on!

I see that TB still has some folk who are composed of vinegar and water and have the same 47 chromosomes as some of the OCD cretins on TGP.

As another MD, I will second Jim's opinion.

Looks very 1980's. I think that's Weckl on drums?

Not the best audio, but still amusing.

This is a CNC (Computer Numeric Control) machine for cutting bodies.

So I guess that's your friend in the wood chipper?

Hallo Clarisse.
Why did you run away from home Clarisse?

I've had good results with the Ernie Ball Wonder Wipes Fretboard Conditioner on my Metro RS4, whenever I change strings.

Hi Steve,

Have you tried light gauge flatwound strings, eg Sadowsky BLK-FLAT40B (40-60-80-100-125)?

The one maple board (non-Sadowsky) bass I used to own sounded amazing only with flats on it.

If you just don't like flats, try half-wound or nickel wound strings.

Failing that, just ship 'er to me for recycling  Wink

It depends how often and how much you play. I've found that wiping down the strings after each session prolongs the sound life of the strings. Alternatively, if you play a lot, changing the strings every 3-4 months isn't very costly and should keep the tone fresh.

If you're using the same gauge strings, you shouldn't affect the setup. If you're noticing new buzzing or strings that seem to be higher than you want, there may be some gradual changes that occur with seasons, humidity etc, and a pro setup would be a good idea if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself.

A small, portable yet powerful rig for outdoor jazz gigs:

Metro RS4 --> Monster 1/4" patch --> RADIAL ProDI passive DI box--> Monster XLR cable out to board, 1/4" patch to MarkBass Little Mark II amp head-->  1/4" patch to MarkBass 2x10 cab

i feel like selling my Lakland 55-94 and my Fenders and buying more Sadowskys. my goodness they're great. Roger i don't now how you do it but in my humble opinion you make the best basses on planet earth. i'm hooked and want more.

I had the exact same reaction after I got my Metro RS4. I was hooked on EBMM basses (had 3 of them). They were all sold off within 3 weeks.

I have a Metro and it surpasses every other non-Sadowsky bass I've ever played. I have yet to own a NYC.

Here's a quote from the Sadowsky website:
"Our Metro Line represents all the basic models of Sadowsky NYC basses but are made by our staff at Sadowsky Tokyo.

The Metro Line offers most of the same features as their NYC siblings including the same pickups, preamp and bridge. The quality of the Metro Line is as high as our NYC instruments."

I am very impressed w/ how balanced the Sadowsky flats are. The tone & timbre quality remains constant any where you wanna go. They also have a very nice growl on the low end. The tension is a bit lighter than the chromes that "legion" was asking about. If I had to pick a set of flats that did EVERYTHING well - its the "Sads". (I have only tried the med.ga)

+1 for the light gauge (40-60-80-100)

From earlier this evening, outdoor show, great weather (finally!), great crowd, in the pocket. That's my Metro RS-4.
