Kalamazoo KB Bass Sound Clips

Sound samples for a late 60s Kalamazoo bass

Kalamazoo KB main page | Kalamazoo KB sound clips

The Kalamazoo KB is another CMI-owned Gibson product to feature the famous Gibson EB bass humbucker - along with the Gibson EB0, EB1, EB2, EB3, Melody Maker bass, Epiphone Rivoli, and Newport. Have a listen to some of the clips below.

Tonally it is quite similar to many of these basses - the strength of the pickup has a tendency to overwhelm the subtleties of body/neck wood and construction, but to a keen ear, it does lack some of the richness that set-neck all mahogany bass offer. Compare this bass to a 1966 Gibson EB0, played through the same amp with identical settings here

Guitar: volume 10, tone 0. Amp: volume 3, treble 5, bass 5. Played fingerstyle - the EB humbucker is so fat sounding anyway, that turning down the tone control doesn't change the tone as significantly as some other basses.
Guitar: volume 10, tone 10. Amp: volume 3, treble 5, bass 5. Even at low volume, you can get a nice crunch to the tone when you dig in with a pick.
