: i made a precission bass with a fretless jazz neck. it has passive emg select pickups. i am trying to get a "oboe" or "deep woodwind" sound. does anyone have any suggestions on how to obtain this sound? possibly different compassitors???? please help me
Jeff, I don't know how close you can get to an oboe type sound just by playing around with capacitors and such, but, I can recommend getting a Zoom 506II effects pedal. This thing is insane. It's got 33 different effects in one pedal (some of them are very similar though) but at about $80.00 it will give you many different and useful sounds to fool around with. I only use about 5 or 6 of the effects it can give, but, to me it's worth the money. A few of the sounds come reasonably close to that of an oboe. Check it out if you get the chance.
