I’ve just posted a video of me playing the Celesti Alliance song “The Alliance” with my brand new Ibanez SR1405T (a wonderful instrument!). Straight into the amp and in passive mode, the signal chain is ridiculously simple: bass->cable-> Johnson Standard 30B amp. I didn’t even use my Seymour Duncan Studio Bass compressor, I wanted the sound of the instrument to come out as transparent as possible.
Of course, since the sound is recorded directly by the inbuilt mic of my camera, it is far from being Hi-Fi, but this gives the idea of how good this bass sounds even with low end gear, without any production.
Check it out and like it if you like!
