The Inevitable Gear Discussion
For my fellow bass nerds, here's a basic rundown of what I'm using these days.
I'm very happily playing instruments from the following craftsmen:
Devon Guitars (DJ5)
Mike Lull Custom Guitars (M5V J & P/J)
Rob Allen Guitars (MB-2 Fretless)
Roscoe Guitars (fretted & fretless)
Sadowsky Guitars (M5)
Amps & Cabs
When convenience > tone, I use Genz Benz Focus cabs.
When tone > convenience, out come the Bergantino cabs.
DI's & Effects
For session work, I've got a Radial JDI, a GrooveTubes DITTO tube box, and when only a Sadowsky will do, a Sad Pre/DI.
Toys: MXR Compressor, Aguilar Octave and Filter Twin.
DR Sunbeam strings.
Mono & iGig bags.
Rock N Roller cart (the back saver!).
DeepDish Designs GigBook app for the iPad.
