1  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky guys, How do you do it? on: February 01, 2013, 12:37:07 PM
One of the things that I love about my Sadowsky JJ4 is that the volume and tonality of each note
on the fretboard is almost perfectly balanced...no dead spots, no hot spots,  no hot strings...(like an over powerful A string)  no weak strings (like a thin and weak sounding G string)...
Every note at every fret sings out with equal power and sustain. 

I thought it must be this one amazing bass...the J.  But now I've added a nicely cared for 09 Sadowsky P bass to my inventory and last night, gigging with it for the first time, I found that it, too, has the same balance of note at every fret.  I used to avoid going up the neck on the G string on my other P bass as much as I had to caress the A string to avoid booming loudness from it.   But now that is all in the past. 

How do you guys do it?  How do you accomplish such a balance of note and string output?  Is it in the pickups?  The wood?  The electrics?  The set up?   Is it all of that and more?  Do you have a secret supply of Mojo?  Whatever you're doing it's obvious that you're doing it right.

It's an amazing experience to play a bass that is so beautifully dialed in.

Bass > amp 100% of the time for me.  Nothing else is needed.
I rarely even use a tuner pedal and use a clip on tuner for the G string and tune with
harmonics from there.  Once it's tuned up no need to tweak the tuning all night.
And it usually comes out of the case about 99.9% in tune.
3  Sadowsky Basses / Sadowsky Basses / New (to me) NYC J4 - all I need! on: October 02, 2012, 01:11:47 PM
Figured I'd launch a new thread and try to wake this forum up a bit!

I acquired a 'new to me' 07 NYC J4 a few weeks ago.  I've used this bass at a couple of rehearsals, at
a session, and gigged with it for the the first time last weekend.  After the gig, on the drive home, I had
an epiphany...I no longer really need the other basses I own, nor do I feel the need to take a back up bass to gigs any longer.  Although I will hang on to my P bass I'm now inspired to let everything else go to new homes.

Thank you Mr S.  I had a fever...and the only prescription was not more cowbell...but a Sadowsky bass.

What's going on with this forum?  Is everyone too busy playing their bass?
It's quiet around here.

Like the title says...newbie here but definitely not a bass rookie.
Been playing for 40 + years and currently work with 3 local bands.

Glad to say I am a new Sadowsky owner - less than a week with the NYC J4JJ and
already realizing that the other basses in my studio are about to start collecting dust. 

Hello from Texas USA!

I use an Avalon 737 or Line 6 Bass Pod. 
either one is set up for quick input selection on my Pro Tools session template.
When I'm using the Pod I keep it set on the Ampeg patch. 
Both work well for me.
