Well i used to be a huge Journey fan, so i had to figure out what Ross Valory used for a bass because i loved it and since he was the bassist of my favorite band i just wanted to know (didnt hurt that its a very cool looking bass) but i finally found out he uses a Curbow International Petite. I never had heard of Curbow before the person on the Journey forum told me, i checked out Greag Curbows site and really liked a lot of his basses. I have no come to like a lot of other custom made basses though as well such as Sadowsky and Ritter. Does anyone have a Curbow, or has anyone played one? What type of sound do you get out of one compared to say a Sadowsky 24/5? Just interested, i still havent completely gotten over my attraction to the Intl Petite!
