    Too much slapping and popping and not enough finger style. Also no playing with a pick. We’re not all in Level 42 tribute bands. How many gigs do you go to where there is constant slapping and popping.

    Thanks for your input! As this is a trade show and not a gig… there is a lot of Slap and pop… The thrust of this video is to highlight the features that the Pickup’s offer..

    For more info I would refer you to Martin Sims… his contact is in the credits.

    +Bass Musician Magazine Whether it is a gig or trade show is irrelevant. This was a demo of the bass and as such left a lot to be desired. I did however find a YouTube video with an excellent demo of the bass and not a slap or pop in sight. This is undoubtedly a great bass and one that I would certainly consider purchasing but not as a result of this video.

    Martin Sims reaching for more options in the way pickups are designed today if electronic pickups were single-coil until Seth Lover in 1955 working as an engineer at Gibson who realized that combining two single-coil structures into one pickup and wiring them out of phase and with their magnetic poles oriented in opposite directions cancelled-or bucked -electrical hum from this the humbucker was born. Now Martin Sims has come up with an idiot proof solution to finding your tone without having to switch basses with options to spare in a pickup this is cutting edge tech however people are slow to change when it comes to change but I think this is the next step for pickups.

    What an amazing sounding bass! I have been playing for 40 years and have owned many basses and this is the first bass that I have seen in a while that is doing something really different with electronics.

    BTW, I love the slapping (even though I don’t do it that often)

    I’ve got a Lionheart 5 string with a John East preamp and it is simply awesome. It is the best, most versatile bass you can own. Get one and I promise you will not be disappointed.
