    Re: New Warmoth P Bass

    I'm going to add the 1M volume pots. I need to measure the tone pot to see what it is now.

    The S/P switch is really cool. If I dial in the amp for a really meaty sound in series, I can flip to parallel and it works like a mid-scoop slap switch. It's not quite the same, since there is a little signal loss, but it's definitely handy. Definitely still need a kill switch since two volumes makes turning the thing down kind of a pain. Also going to try stainless strings this time.

      Those sound like good upgrades. You can use a no load tone pot instead of another switch to bypass the tone. 250k works well for having the cap begin to take effect right from 10 to 9. 300k would have a little more play turning down from 10 before the cap takes effect. 500k and especially 1meg are unnecessay to use for tone imo.

        Just remember, unless you have stainless steel frets, they're going to wear rather quickly.

            I have S/P switching on three of mine. Love it.

            Enjoy your Warmoth.

                Do you still love the Steve Harris P pickup?

                I tried the Antiquity P pickups, but they’re too scooped and bright. The Harris’s EQ looks like it’s neither of those.

                  Yeah I love that thing. It sounds like a classic P Bass but more bad ass.

                    I have an EMG P in mine now, but I think I’m trying that next. The EMG is a killer pickup, but too bright in this one.
