So I searched the forum for sound clips, and the only results were people asking for clips, or people saying that they would post clips soon. Nobody has ever actually put clips up, or even linked to Dingwall clips somewhere else. So here it is: the unofficial sound clips thread. If you know of Dingwall clips anywhere, even someone else's, please link to them.

I have recordings of my Dingwalls in a band context (both covers as well as originals). I am still in the process of recording ALL my Dingwalls to create a Dingwall sound library (My FRB Z3 takes forever with so many sonic combinations, to mention just one bass). I'll be back soon. PS if few people I've played with, post clips and videos of me playing with them I'll post the links

Yeah, getting a clips thread going is something I've been wanting to do for a while but been too busy with work, family, etc. to give it the attention needed. It would/will be a welcome addition to the forum though, for sure.

(I also think it'd be useful to say what the model/settings/recordings methods were used too - as much detail as possible really...)

Hi Johnnyrok101 I record and keep track of every setting of every bass (it is an overkill but it is really worth the effort). I hope I'll finish soon so I can post links

Good idea, I'd love to hear some more recordings, there are very few around! I still can't decide between an AB-I or II and have no idea if a Super J is worth waiting/saving up for. I've always done recordings for people when selling basses, it's better than a shot in the dark. :) Cheers, EG

I played a worship concert at my church last night. I used my ABII-5 for our team's set (there were two more bands after us) and then again for a finale 3-song set. The concert was recorded and video'd - I think the CD / DVD will be available in the fall. I'm really excited about hearing the Dingwall on the recording [b:2is6mlo1]and[/b:2is6mlo1] seeing it on video! The sound techs took a line from my Eden head, so the sound may be a bit colored but that's ok because it sounded huge on stage (low D, C, & B's were thunderous). I'll keep you guys posted. :) I've got a clip of my ABII on my [url=http://www.myspace.com/xavjr:2is6mlo1]myspace page[/url:2is6mlo1] - click on the clip called motown. It's a little rough but you get the idea. If I recall correctly, I ran ABII in parallel, bass boosted to 50%, treble 25% (I don't have the hybrid treble control), volume 100%, straight into Garageband on my iMac. Still haven't figured the whole lag issue, guess I need a better interface than plugging right into the audio port.

Hi guys, here are a couple of videos taken while playing for a friend's clinic. Sorry about the bass being quite soft! http://youtube.com/watch?v=aveaY6T4xPU http://youtube.com/watch?v=EekLC8Too9o

Wassup Zac, thanx a lot for the input. We r (actually me) ending the pre production. Will start recording in a few month, waiting for a drum mic to arrive from US. I'm having a hell of a time to get myself a good singer, it's almost imposible to find a guy round here who can sing both MPB (brazilian music, like Bossa Nova, Choro and Samba) and who can also sing his guts out like a rocker. I think ity's easier to find good crooners in US and Canada. Anyway...good stuff is on the way. (almost a John Mayer original) My Super-J will arrive just in time to record the tracks with more old school flavor. I'll keep you tuned All the best Patrick L.

Here's my ABII on a demo tune called Running Wild, by my band The Phantom Lovers, (recorded on an iBook using GarageBand - the bass was plugged into a SansAmp DI). There are 2 bass tracks on the song: an EBow track(most noticeable at the beginning playing with the violin) and a fingerstyle track. Settings for both were the same: pickups in series, volume full, active switch on, bass off, treble slightly backed off. [url=http://www.myspace.com/thephantomloversuk:3h5mdo69]The Phantom Lovers[/url:3h5mdo69] (It's the first track that'll play when you open the link) Enjoy!

I can't wait to get in to a good studio to hear what the ABII can really do... Incidentally, I used a Fender Jaguar and a Reverend 5-string on the other tracks - much harder to get a good sound out of them... No prizes for guessing where they are now..!

No problem, I've been trying to decide whether to go ABI or ABII and your track really helped confirm that I *NEED* a II! :) Got two basses up on ebay now, if the cheaper one sells I have a deposit, if the other sells, I got the lot. :) EG

(FYI, I tried an ABI and an older ABII before I decided: the ABII's "f-hole"/chambered body and the very transparent active electronics swung it for me. A real bonus is if you run long cables or plug into a volume pedal or effects, you can switch the active circuitry on which acts as a buffer...hey presto, you get all the lost clarity back!)

Is there a huge difference to an older ABII though? That's probably all I can afford for now. EG

EG[/quote:3vih3h4o] We're veering off-topic here, but I'd say that to start with, just get on the Dingwall ladder at a price level that's comfortable for you - you won't be disappointed wherever that may be, but the thing is to jump on (just be aware that later on, it could prove to be an expensive ladder!... :lol: )

Here's a few clips of my ABI V, with Ken Smith Compressor strings. I used my Avalon U5 as a DI straight into the guy's board. I have very mixed feeling about these tracks--I think the drummer is excellent even if he does slow down and speed up but the rest is not happening to me and the drummer just left the band. The guy who recorded it said he did nothing at all to the bass, no compression or eq, just a hi-pass filter. He said it was an excellent recording bass, which I already knew 1. a mix of slap and fingerstyle, played on the bridge and neck in whichever is the setting with the lower output (series? Parallel? I always forget): [url:18ex3qeo]http://chnm.gmu.edu/courses/magic/punches.mp3[/url:18ex3qeo] 2. A slower tune where the bass is pretty prominent. The guy who recorded/mixed it mixed the bass pretty high. I used the neck position [url:18ex3qeo]http://chnm.gmu.edu/courses/magic/victim.mp3[/url:18ex3qeo] 3. A shuffle blues, also played on the neck pickup: [url:18ex3qeo]http://chnm.gmu.edu/courses/magic/lipstick.mp3[/url:18ex3qeo] I like old strings--these were probably a year old, maybe a little less, at the time of the recording. It's a good representation of a passive AB V, and I've been playing this bass and this bass only for the last two years, so I know how to get what I want out of it.

Hey guys, I finally posted a sound clip of my mahogany ABII up on my myspace page, check out the song Ganoof. Might have been using the rear pickup with lots of bass boost, can't remember now. It's actually an impro song we made up at rehearsal after like 30 seconds of me noodling on the Dinger for the first time. In other words, expect some rough patches and dodgy playing. :) Have since set the bass up better, so I'll try and get a better example next time around. Cheers, EG

Well... I just recorded the rest of the bass parts for my band's new album yesterday. [url:2fgkmy3n]http://www.myspace.com/1128worship[/url:2fgkmy3n] There are three songs up right now (8/8/08). They are from the last set of recordings. I was friends with the band then, not in it, because I lived 4 hours away. My ABII was used on "Mighty God" and "Hold Me". An EBMM Stingray 5 was on "In Your Hand", but that song isn't going on the final 10-track album anyway. All of the new tracks (not posted on myspace yet) are played entirely by me on my ABII, all in bridge only, bluEQube off, OBP-3 active with bass boosted about +4 dB, mid flat, and treble boosted about +3 dB. I'm excited to post again after we're done with the production. An interesting note about the recording: The engineer/co-producer is a bass player himself, and a good one. When he records, he swears by his Stingray 5 H (Honeyburst w/ white pup and pickguard - just like the one I traded for my ABII years ago, except mine was probably the nicest SR I've ever seen) through a Sansamp BDDI. With that in mind, I went with the bridge pup only (single H in the sweet spot) with a bass boost (to compensate for a bridge soloed FD-1) and treble boost (for even more trebly "zing" like my SR5 had). The combination of ABII + Thunderfunk (EQ'd fat but tight: loads of low mids, bass at +6 dB with the low parametric band set at 34 Hz and -2 dB to remove some Dingwall B string fundamental) + my custom Dr. Bass 2x12 was perfect. He just went by the mic'd cab - no DI on a couple songs - and never once touched the BDDI after he heard the tone. It was spot on for what I was going for.
