Bass Musician Magazine March 21, 2016 at 10:32 pm +impulseproman I agree! Goyim Proud June 1, 2016 at 2:21 am this is awesome, when I go big time I’m getting one :p Hutton Steel August 8, 2016 at 10:43 am 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. Bass Musician Magazine August 8, 2016 at 7:12 pm 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. Hutton Steel August 8, 2016 at 9:32 pm +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. Bass Musician Magazine August 8, 2016 at 9:42 pm point taken. Thanks Bass Musician Magazine August 9, 2016 at 6:33 pm Martin sent this link for more of a finger style demo..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f9nuQUxUhrU HIT MAN November 11, 2016 at 12:51 pm 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. Bass Musician Magazine November 11, 2016 at 10:26 pm Thanks for your input Hit Man! Keep it low! Keith Pasculli January 22, 2018 at 4:54 am 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. Bass Musician Magazine January 22, 2018 at 4:56 am We are looking forward to seeing what Martin has to show us for 2018 in a few days! Thanks for your input! Keith Pasculli January 22, 2018 at 4:57 am BTW, I love the slapping (even though I don’t do it that often) Bass Musician Magazine January 22, 2018 at 4:59 am Cool! 🙂 Dane Dabrowski April 26, 2018 at 6:03 pm I love these pickups incredible slap pop technique …. Bass Musician Magazine April 26, 2018 at 7:22 pm They offer a lot of possibilities! Thanks for watching! Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
