E String Bass

A bass guitar created from an acoustic guitar...

The story

This instrument was born when I was recording randomness on an acoustic guitar. Between recording all kinds of noises I decided to just record the full length of the low E string as muted pluck and it turned out to sound quite nice as a bass instrument. The samples are quite short and tightly cut and have been treated with some bass addition to make it sound more like a bass than a guitar.

  • A lovely tone

    This is a lovely sounding bass. The samples are quite staccato and don't work in every situation but the tone is warm and a bit of fiddling with the release eases the issues. A great start!
