And so I'm just now listening to the Damned's Black Album--so kind of the bass tone on "Hit or Miss" to get in the ballpark of what I'm angling for.

No new bridge, he just put ferrules in the posts to keep it from shifting. Looks like I should be able to meet up with him tomorrow to grab it. Will post pics!

Oh, and in terms of tone--I want that mid range/high cliff/definition/heft/chunk tone. I had an old recording from an ALBQ of I think AEN playing Fredo and Rochelle's Fender Bass VI and OH MY FUCKING ...

It's white/cream with tort trim from my memory of the photo I saw of it. It is from a mate of mine; and I recall when he listed it he indicated he had replaced the stock bridge--just messaged him to ...

Scored one off a buddy of mine ($300). Still waiting to get a schedule together where I can grab it from him, but pretty excited. I love love love the tone from Fredo & Rochelle's legit Fender B ...

I think Corsair as the OP responded well to the critique and it should stand as that. He wasn't continuing to argue any point so leaping to his defense or contending that what he wrote initially shou ...

Yeah, the effort idea is probably your best bet. Carpet hung over windows and whatnot can help some. A lot of time it just sucks out the high frequencies; so not great for recording but can dampen t ...

Yeah, I think that thing uses zip discs. I'd reckon you could probably get a used Korg D1600 or something for about that price that can export tracks to CD-R more easily. Still, if you're ok doing e ...

I'd say anything you know really well, that you're familiar with how it sounds on other systems in your car, home, clubs, ear buds, whatever. The idea is to see how they sound on your monitors in you ...

I think -12 dB rms is fine, and plenty loud. I wish more mastering engineers would work on the overall sound of the mix, as opposed to just trying to make it loud. I do some what I refer to as " ...
