Marvellous people! Please welcome the wonderful Jon Button. Jon is an amazing bassist who has toured and recorded with many of my favourite bands and artists such as The Who, Sheryl Crow and Shakira.
Jon and I have been working together for a many years and he tracked bass for ‘I’ll Be Your Man’ by James Blunt, which I co-produced alongside Kevin Griffin. We recently did a session with Jonah Smith at Sunset Sound Studio 3, so I thought I’d take the chance to interview Jon about his bass recording chain and setup!
Jon has a wonderful collection of basses and an insanely versatile pedalboard. The tones he gets out of that thing within seconds is absolutely incredible. Please enjoy this video! Thanks so much for sharing you knowledge with us Jon, as always it was an absolute pleasure working with you.
Thank you ever so much for watching this video. If dive deeper into bass recording, production and playing techniques, please check out our courses at promixacademy.com. We’ve got ‘The Fretless Monster’ Tony Franklin, Taylor Swift Bassist Amos Heller and professional Nashville bassists showing you the ropes.
Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,
