  1. What kind of bass does their bass player use? It's some kinda 6-string.

    Hey pick up the new bassplayer mag it has a story about him in it!
     
  3. I don't get bassplayer anymore. Kinda got bored with it. But I would like to know what that is he's playing the the Smooth Criminal video (Hillarious btw, I love that kinda stuff). I know I've seen one before, and it's something decently well known...I..just..can't...remember.

    Actually its not well known at all he got together with a luthier in his local town and had it custom made for him! So its the only one! As far as the name of the luthier i will have to tell you later!
     
  5. The bass looks and sounds good except for where the body connects back to the neck

    Tye Zamora play Dave Parr custom 6-string and Kenneth Lawrence custom basses. I assumed that in teh video it was his Dave Parr but I guess it is a Kenneth Lawrence now cause I never seen one. But yeah those are the basses he plays. He also uses SWR and DR strings I believe. He plays upright, keyboards, and guitar. A very good musician and a good musical background. Love the cat. Well I hope that helps.

    I just saw them earlier today on the warped tour. I left after watching them for two songs. To me,they sound like every other band out today. I also didn't hear anything special coming from him(but I didn't stay for the whole set, so...). Cool lookin' bass though.

    There was a thread on this a couple of weeks ago.

    It is a Kenneth Lawrence Brase 6.

    Here is a pic of the 5 string version from the Bass Player Ultimate 5 string shootout.

  11. Sound like every other band? I disagree...
    Anywho, it's a Dave Parr, Tye designed the bass himself and wired the electronics, according to the BP. I really like what I've heard so far, I wanna hear the entire album.

    For clarification:

    In the "Movies" video, it was his Dave Parr custom 6.

    In the "Smooth Criminal" video, it's his Kenneth Lawrence Brase 6. He might also own a 5, according to BP, unlesss it was a typo.

    I'm 100% sure on both counts.

    He used other basses to record, like a Stingray on "Flesh and Bone".

    Definitely one of my fav players as of recent. Killer woody tone. I gots to get me a Ken Lawrence with some LPs!
