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
. 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!!
I wanna say thank you to Roger for the love he bring on his work…every day!! PS: Sorry for my bad english
