Sadowsky NYC Single Cut 24 Fret

This single cut caught my eye at NAMM 2016 and I was instantly intrigued by it since Roger Sadowsky is mostly known for his J basses. So when he comes out with something new you better take note and listen!

This model is built by both Roger and Lisa Kahn in a co-op with US session legend, Chip Shearin. Chip played the legendary groove in Rapper’s Delight and has since been working as a hired gun and played with the world’s biggest musicians and pop stars. So he’s definitely a dude that knows a thing or two about great bass tone.

The body of the Single Cut is ash, but with a maple top. The neck and fingerboard is also maple.

It comes equipped with the Will Lee edition of the famous all-boost Sadowsky preamp.

 

It’s a bass that just sings and is very comfortable to play

You can engage the mid boost via the toggle switch and on the back you have 4 dip switches to select the frequency of the mid-range. Plus, there are two screws which allow you to adjust the Q (bandwidth) and the amount of boost you want.

To me this bass is more focused on the mid and high end but without losing the big booty of the bass. It’s a bass that just sings and is very comfortable to play. A more than welcome new addition to the Sadowsky line!
