1966 Hagstrom Coronado IV bass
solid bodied electric bass

Hagstrom Coronado main page | 1966 Hagstrom Coronado | Coronado sound clips

The Hagstrom Coronado IV is one of my favourite basses. It is a medium scale (32 1/4") bass; so it's easy to play, and with the classic mahogany body/neck, rosewood fingerboard combination, produces dark, rich sounds; fat and mellow to a middy snarl, depending on how it's played. The neck is superb, with the fast action that Hagstrom is famous for.

The switch system only allows six distinct sounds, no tone pots keep things simple. The first two switches are simple on/off pickup selectors, allowing neck pickup, bridge pickup, or both. The last two switches 'L' an 'H' are tone selectors, the equivalent of tone set at 10 or 0 on a regular pot. Have a listen to some of the clips below.

Without the amps 'deep' mode, you can still get nice clear, and powerful bass sound; amp setting: Volume 7, Treble 7, Bass 7. Guitar tone selector on 'H' (switch 4). Played fingerstyle.

Bridge pickup

Tone selector on 'H' (switch 4). With a pick.
Boosting the treble, and without 'deep' mode, gives a bright almost clanky vibe: Volume 5, Treble 10, Bass 5. The guitar tone selector is on 'H' (switch 4). About as bright as you can get with this set up (some roundwound strings are about the only other thing to try).

This Hagstrom rocks! or is it those old amps?Really liking the audio clips. Not sure how i'd get on with the scale length, and it's such an odd looking bass. How does it sound DI'd? More clips please!
