This time my UBass has to wait until mid song to appear (and be heard)!
This is our version of a great arrangement of the Disney classic ”When you wish upon a star” (from the movie Pinocchio) that Swedish jazz guitarist Ulf Wakenius and Swedish trombonist Nils Landgren did on the CD ”Christmas with my friends”.
Daniel Björnmo, guitar
Jan-Kenneth Rönning, piano
Magnus Sjöquist, vocals and fretless Kala UBass
UBass signal chain and tech stuff
UBass (> Electro-Harmonix Wah/Volume pedal > Headway EDB-1 > MarkBass Little Mark II > Aguilar SL-112)
The song is recorded with a stereo pair of small diaphragm microphones with omni capsules in A/B stereo configuration with the vocal mic added to the mix.
Stay tuned for a future blog post with an in depth test using the Headway EDB-1 with the UBass (and other piezo equipped basses). I will also compare similarites and differeces to my trusty old Fishman Model B preamp!
