Instrument used for recording: 22-fret Fender PJ Bass , which has a versatile sound spectrum and an authentic vintage sound. The body is made from heat-treated alder and the neck is made from maple with a flat neck radius for excellent playability, making recording easier.

Equipped with two Delano pickups: a single-coil pickup in the Bridge position and a split-coil humbucker in the Middle position, this bass delivers a wide range of classic bass sounds with an unmistakable vintage feel. This instrument combines everything from the transparent punch of a single coil to the growling low- and mid-range punch of a split coil. Massive steel rod 9.5mm ceramic pickups deliver ultra-fast transient attack, powerful low-end response, detailed mids and sparkling highs, resulting in direct, unsophisticated bass complemented by soft, natural compression that enhances every groove.

With a narrow and wide frequency response, these pickups are an excellent choice for both modern and classic funk and rock players. They excel with low-tuned bass and offer ample tonal customization, ensuring that even the lowest low-tuned bass notes remain tight, focused and full of life.

SCARBEE SUN BASS – FINGER was specifically designed for studio programming and it provides the most authentic attacks including pre-tones, fingering, phase correction and precise articulation timing. Given our extensive recording of various articulations with full attacks, we recommend using a negative delay of 52 ms (resulting in the first peak occurring approximately 5-6 ms after impact, like a conventional percussion instrument).

With the recent release of version 1.1, we now offer an additional option for the instrument: a “Live” version, designed with reduced latency, making it suitable for live performance or recording. After recording MIDI, you can switch to the “full” version to achieve an optimal and complete sound.
