Fender Jazz Bass - 1968
One of the most recorded bass models of all times. This particular instrument is in original condition with no parts exchanged.
Fender Precision Bass - 1965
The Fender Precision bass was the first mass-produced electric bass model and is probably the most best-selling electric bass of all times. The first 'P-bass' shipped in 1951 and it's still being manufactured today.
The P-bass with flat wound strings played with the fingers produces the typical warm and 'round' 60s/70s R'n'B and Motown sound.
This particular instrument was sampled played with fingers and there is hardly no distortion in the samples - not even in the loudest velocity layers.
Fender Precision Bass - 1978 - played with a pick
This P-bass is very similar to the 1965 P-bass described above. The big difference in sound mainly depends on the round wound strings and the fact that it's played with a pick. It also has a maple fretboard which gives it a harder and more transient tone.
Gibson® EB-0® - 1972
The short scale EB-0 is one of Gibson's most popular bass models and was manufactured between 1959 and 1979. The design is very similar to the popular Gibson® SG® electric guitar.
Gibson® Les Paul® - 1969
An American medium scale bass with British sound manufactured between '69 and '71. The body is made out of solid mahogany, set 3-piece mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard. Due to its heavy weight the Gibson® Les Paul® bass is more popular in the studio than on stage.
The first Gibson® Les Paul® bass was a low-impedance instrument which required a transformer to play through standard amps. The output impedance on this particular instrument has been modded to suit standard amps, though. In Reason Electric Bass, only the signal from the neck pickup was sampled. On the other hand, it's the neck pickup that provides the characteristic Gibson® Les Paul® sound.
Kay Hollowbody - 1963
The Kay Hollowbody electric basses were sold on mail order in the US and were quite inexpensive. Because of the low price the Kay bass could be found almost anywhere in studios across the US and has appeared on many recordings over the years.
This model (in very good condition) was chosen for the Reason Electric Bass ReFill for its dirty and muted 60s sound. It was played slightly muted with a pick, and only with down-strokes.
Music Man StingRay 5 - 2001- 5 string fretless
The MusicMan StingRay first came out in 1976 and was designed by Leo Fender. It was one of the first production electricbasses with active electronics. It featured a 9V battery to power the built-in preamp and EQ. This particular instrument is a 5-string, fretless one and was sampled without the characteristic vibrato.
Rickenbacker 4001 - 1974 - played with a pick
Rickenbacker guitars and basses have very unique design which make them easy to spot wherever they appear. The very popular 4001 model first came out in 1961 and this particular red/white Rickenbacker 4001 bass was manufactured in 1974. It's owned and played by Swedish bassist Stefan Fandén.
