Jeffrey Wash on a Sadowsky M5-24 fretless. Killer tone, killer groove, killer bass. did I say 'killer' enough times?:

I've been away from the online forums for awhile, just logged on last night and saw that this video of me with Bruce Kaphan's quartet had been shared here.  Fran, thanks so much for posting and for your compliments.  There are some very nice clips on this thread!

My pleasure. Excellent job!

An update to show the tan lines on the body. Who said poly finishes don't darken?:

I got a Tone Hammer 500 and should have an SL112 soon.

It's a great amp at 4 lbs! It even sounds good through the 212. But I really like the sound with one or two of the 112s. I had the GS112 first, or I might have gone with the SL cab also. I went through a few Eden WTXs first, a bit less money, but the sound wasn't as natural as the Tone Hammer. Actually, the TH500 and one GS112 still seem to weight less than my DB750 in the rack case!

I sold my AG500SC and a pair of DB112s. They sounded great, but I wanted something smaller and lighter. The TH500 sounded great with the DBs, I hope it sounds also great with the SL112.

Welcome to the forum. Post some photos of your bass whenever you have a chance.

The white maple is holding up pretty well (and pretty white Grin).

Those are two cool shots. I'd love to have a photo of my PJ with Roger in it.

Is the Sadowsky onboard preamp a unity gain preamp? (that means that there is no change in the instrument's output level when switching between passive and active mode (with the bass/treble controls set to flat)).


The onboard pre has a slightly higher output when the active eq is set flat.

Congrats Fran! You did a great job. I like the way you did the side of the headstock with the hard line transition.NICE!
I hope you paid particular attention to "whiskering" the surface well with the 400 grit. That's where the silky feel comes from. Not sure I understand what you mean by "less porous" (with the oil application). Mine feels like glass & has the illusion of feeling harder than it did with the finish on it.
I'm really pleased that you had the courage to go through with this. You're gonna love it amigo! Nice thing is: now that the nitro is gone, you can always re-do any of it quite simply if needed. Did you have any problem with the nitro dust? Maybe it was less of an issue due to its aged curing. Mine was freshly sprayed.
B.  

Hard to explain; I might get the same feeling with the natural skin oil after playing the bass for a while, but the true oil really made me get that feel faster.

No problems with the nitro dust, I just did the job close to a window.


The issue w/nitro dust I was referring to was the transferring of a tacky dust residue from your hands to the bass. I found that to be a concern. I thought maybe since your bass was a few years older, the nitro would be cured completely & perhaps not have been as tacky when in dust form. I have limited experience with this so I'm just curious. This isn't wood dust that can be washed off. The protection of the bass with masking etc. is very important.
B.

Ah! I get it now, but no problems at all. I just cleaned the bass with the Sadowsky everyday polish and it was clean as a whistle.
