Part of the goal of bassfuzz.com is to use a consistent set of tools and equipment while doing reviews, that said I’ve proven in the past that I can’t always stay put with my gear, so I’ll make sure and document everything I can. First list of gear used was April 2008:
- Lakland DJ4 (Jazz Bass) - Added Oct 2009 – SOLD 06-2012
- MTD Kingston Artist (5 String, Active) – Added Summer 2009 – SOLD 10-2010
- Cliff Bordwell D-Bass (SOLD 9-2009)
- Rob Allen Mouse (SOLD 9-2009)
- Schecter Hellcat VI (SOLD)
- Birdsong Hy5 Shortscale (SOLD)
- Ampeg pf-500 & pf-115he
- GK MB210 (sold June 2012)
- Apogee Duet 2 (Added 1-2012)
- Alesis Multimix Firewire 12 (Died 12-2011)
- Heil PR40
- Shure SM58, SM57
- Apple Mac Pro
- Apple iMac – Retired Dec 2010
- Been a year since I updated anything, so quite a bit of change reflected in the last year.
- Updated page to reflect current gear.
- Heil PR40 added for doing mic work on cabs
- Replaced amp with GK MB210
- Replaced CB Ball basses with Lakland DJ4 (Jazz Style) as bass for primary recording.
- Officially adding mic’d amp segments to all videos
- Officially adding the MTD Heir 5 to the website (I’ve been using it for awhile though)
Major Update 12-2008:
- The active J bass (CB Ball) will be the primary bass used in video recording.
- I’m eliminating the ‘odd’ basses from the default recordings. Listening levels are extremely low, and frankly they are odd basses anyway and serve too narrow a function.
- The active J will now have samples from three positions, just like the passive P
- The ‘in the mix’ sample will be recorded with the J bass
