The P-Bass

The. Timeless. Bass

The Classic Precision Bass (aka P-Bass) is one of the most iconic bass sounds of all time, heard on generations of recordings from artists like Elvis Presley, The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd and Paul Simon. More recently, Sting, Elvis Costello, Guns N' Roses, Foo Fighters, and many others have kept the sound of the instrument fresh and alive... and evolving into the new century.

We meticulously deep-sampled the P-Bass, capturing fingered, picked, plucked, and slapped articulations. Moreover, each of these nuanced variations features dynamic and emotive sustaining samples, as well as muted staccatissimo notes for your classic 8th note bass lines.

The P-Bass is known for its solid body and split-coil humbucking pickup, creating a powerful and punchy sound with a natural grit. It can dial in a warm and fuzzy tone from the 60s, but also showcase a much more aggressive and in-your-face timbre when picked and slapped.
