In May I visited Brazil for the first time and met a lot of nice people including Henrique and Almir. Read more in this post.
Last week we met again…but now in my studio in Sweden! We started to jam and came up with some new music.
One of the things we played was built on two short bass parts (bass bits). It has a very loose form and one version turned out to be 13 minutes!
I used a Kala SUB with the new Kala Metal Round Wound strings. I went back and forth between a dry Ubass sound and a FX chain. This was the FX chain: Kala SUB Solid Body Ubass (with Kala round wound strings) > RMI Basswitch (the built in DI sends the signal to my Apollo Audio Interface) > In the parallel loop I used this chain: Boss OC-2 Octaver > Electro Harmonix BassBalls > Boss SYB-5 Bass Synth controlled by an Boss FV-500L Expression pedal. > Aguilar bass amp (Tone Hammer 500) and cab (SL-112). This time for monitor only.
Below is a link to a shorter version of the jam. (The whole song might be released in the future!)
Hope you like the music the cool sound of the Ubass and of course great playing by Henrique and Almir!
