My Blueshawk sounds like a trumpet & Trombone french Horn, more than my other basses. I believe it is because of the single coil pickups & Big D varitone.

Using an EH Bass Micro synthesizer, setting a slight bit of Attack delay to the notes & Digitech whammy up one octave for a trumpet no octave for a Trombone. Using the Kahler with these gives you that trumpet "vibrato" that can only be done with a Kahler.

WOW!!! Was that done only with your bass? That sounded awesome! It reminded me of Keith Emerson at times. Great tune, BD!

Thanks, the song only used the Blueshawk bass. It just sounded like horns right off the bat with the Kahler and attack delay.

Funny but at first I did not like the bass, because I discovered I do not like the thin sound of single coil pickups for regular bass parts. What What I discovered is the bass shines when used with effects. It reminds me of a telecaster or Stratacaster. The thin clean sound works great for higher parts.

I have been pretty much just using my Les Paul for bass & thick heavy chord parts and the Blueshawk for lead, horn & Twangy roles.


The Kahler & Digitech Whammy has opened a whole new world of fun for me.

Here is another song that uses the trumpet effect-

Black Mokona- The rythem guitar & bass are my active Skyline Decade- the trumpet is the Blueshawk.
