It Shouldn’t Be, But There it is

tonefiend and His uBass

Here’s a nice little video entitled “The Bass That Shouldn’t Be” by thetonefiend, AKA Joe Gore.

Mr. Gore explains that he just got his uBass before the NAMM show and he was blown away:

Usually I’d rather scoop the catbox than play through a piezo pickup. Yet I dig the way the piezo’s stringy/slappy highs helps bass lines slice through a mix. You can hear the line loud and clear, even when I slather on the loud guitars.

His playing is first rate and the uBass sounds great. He explains how he recorded the video and what effects he’s using.

Give it a go. It’s only two minutes long, so what have you got to lose?
