Nice video displaying lots of different techniques in a short time span.

So many different thoughts watching this. Interesting, impressive, overwhelming. He just did 40 and still didn’t cover it all.

My first thought was “ok I’m humbled.”

Haha, yeah, anybody wants to buy a Yamaha for a good price… I am giving up playing bass :joy:

There . . . I modified your response to make it more global, @joergkutter :yum:

Seriously though @eric.kiser and @howard, that was quite a demonstration of technique, and I certainly am humbled and overwhelmed as well.

Cheers, Joe

… and there it is folks, the answer to what @JoshFossgreen should have in the Advanced B2B course. Sign me up!

Seriously, that guy is damned good!

BTW, thanks for your post, @howard . . . :+1:

It will make a very handy reference guide for me! Lots of times I try to practice some John Entwistle basslines but I wasn’t sure what to call them until now. :wink:

For example, he seems to use that “three finger gallop” technique in a lot of his work.

All best, Joe

'was just watching some bass covers on YT, and I found this one with what I find being a great tone :

some Darkglass gear involved … might have to invest one day …

Time to let the bass and all the gear rest for a little while, mon ami, and enjoy the final minutes of the year :grinning:

Wishing you and all Buzzers a great start :guitar::four_leaf_clover::cocktail::champagne:

My favorite YouTube resource besides Josh is this guy:

He does these transcriptions, and discusses each song. I like to watch him play.

I was just looking at the Alpha Omicron. Not too bad used if you don’t need a DI on your drive :slight_smile:

Blocked in the UK so I can’t see it. Bah!

[edit] apparently blocked when viewed on here, but direct on YT it’s ok. I’ll give him a try. First up; Ramble On - Led Zepplin. Already got my attention.

@Howard , the guy on the video with the blue JB uses a Darkglass Microtubes B3K. I found two links with guys who made clones :

I don’t have enough time for this right now but that’s interresting :face_with_monocle:

Awesome. I really love the sound of that pedal too. All of them (B3K, B7K, Alpha Omicron, Alpha Omega) sound amazing. Even not distorting - they just have a great tone color and overdrive sound.

It would be pretty killer if someone produced a less expensive clone.

same, I’ve never been disapointed hearing some Darglass gear ! it sounds amazing.

I love basically everything about this one.

Except, well, the price. But it is cheap by their standards at $300 new, with a less expensive version without the DI.

yeah, lovely piece of gear for sure.

That’s awesome. I hope someone starts making them.

Edit: this claims to be a modded B3K circuit clone. Sold for $100.

Great side by side vid. It’s really hard to say which one is best here. They are all different and all sound awesome.

The Alpha Omicron and the Microtubes X seem more versatile but the B3K just sounds good on all settings.

Also, the guy’s BB734 in BEAD sounded pretty damn good on its own too :slight_smile:
