    As a big fan of her and her music i'm interested in her gear, does anybody know what strings she uses on her p-basses?

    d'addario xl heavy gauge on her standard tuning p bass (i saw her tech stringing it up).
    and i THINK fender super bass (7250) on her D tuning p bass. hope that helps. she also uses a tech 21 effect that is NOT a sansamp to beef up the tone. she rules.

    Is that her "Sparkle" bass?

    Her black or sunburst basses?

    If you would see a picture of it now would you recognize it?

    FWIW...my wife used to babysit her in Montreal. We were friends of her dad.

    More trivia...her dad was well know politician in Montreal. They named a street after him when he passed away.

    She was 4 at the time.

    Her dad was a real piece of work. Loved by many. Huge character. The Montrealers on the forum should remember him well.
     
  9. I've passed by Auf der Maur street a few times and I know her father's famous and all, but I didn't know they named that street after him. Interesting!

    Nick Auf der Maur street is just off Crescent. He used to live at a pub on Bishops which name escapes me. He ran for provincial politices in the famous Nov 15th, 1976 election against Rene Levesque, and lost. My wife and I worked on his campaign.

    She was a lttle ankle biter back then with masses of curly dark red hair.

    Bass Guitar magezine says "Effects: Sans Amp Bass driver DI, EBS UniChorus." though, they're not always 100% correct.
