I assume the fretboard finish is their usual UV-cured poly whatever (esther, I think). It's tough as nails, and it's holding up quite well to string wear. It also adds quite a bit of mwah to the tone Smile

I received a couple more basses from Suhr this week, and I recorded a fresh slap clip with the ice blue metallic one. What a KILLER j-bass tone tone!

Here's a link to my complete Suhr bass inventory, and then below are the new ones:

Suhr Classic J (Ice Blue Metallic)


Suhr Classic J (Black)

I recently did some tinkering in my studio setup. I was running 16-bit for stability reasons, but I recently figured out how to make it run reliably at 24-bit. With that out of the way, I decided to bust out a quick sound clip of something just to give the new studio configuration a ride. So I looped a quick I-IV chord progression and funked out a little on this Suhr Classic J (Olympic White).



Here's are the clips:
Suhr Funk
Suhr Funk (Bass Only)

The bass line was done with the pickup blend centered and a smidge of bass boost. The chords were all bridge pickup with a bit more bass boost and a little flanger added in Sonar.

My signal chain was:
Alembic F1X preamp -> Lexicon Alpha USB Interface -> PC/SONAR

I'm pretty knocked out by the level of separation I'm getting now. Even when listening to the entire mix version, I feel like I can lock in on the bass and hear it perfectly clearly. That's what I've been after!! :hyper::hyper::hyper:

On second thought... I had a lead part I'd written that I thought sounded too repetitive (I played the part once, then digitally copied it over and over to make a longer clip). But now I realize the clip I posted sounds pretty pointless without it. Whatcha gonna do?!?

Try this on for size...
Suhr Funk w/ Lead Line

The bass line makes more sense now as it bobs and weaves with the melody, and some of the fills at the end sound MUCH better against the melody.
