What kind of pickup do you have in that bass?

 

And, could you share some of your thoughts about pickup placement for an "electro-acoustic" bass such as this?

 

Gracias!

 

Peace.

The magnetic pickup is a Kent Armstrong. The piezo is a standard disc style that I've modified and reworked to my spec.

 

The magnetic pickup is located for a more "mellow" tone that allows a good contrast with the bright piezo. About the 25th fret position. At this location specifically for use in my "MagPi" system.

 

This PASSIVE system allows a HIGHLY dynamic touch response from the player...you don't want to use a compressor; you'll want the hear the attack transient "blossom".

I, too, would like to try one of your fretless basses some day. I'm sure that day will one day come! (Perhaps one of my annual summer encounters with Jeremy... ;):D )

 

Peace.

That red bass went to Massachusetts...."mojo-man" at www.talkbass.com .....
