Sound Clips

I vastly prefer this bass with the bass boost on. Man thats heavy! Talk about Tone.

  • Harmony H22 Bass in bass boost mode (round wound strings, treble and vol pots positioned at 9/10, bass boost ON, recorded directly into my sound card, with no pre-amp)
  • Harmony H22 Bass in standard mode (round wound strings, treble and vol pots positioned at 9/10, bass boost OFF, recorded directly into my sound card, with no pre-amp)
