Okay, im not trying to start a flame war, but I was thinking today that (possibly) bass players are no different from the kids listening to MTV waiting and acting on the next big thing. It seems every 6 months or so, a new "toy" comes along, whether its a bass, an amp or a cabinet that is "the next hot thing". For example, it seems that Bevantne (sp?) and Brubaker basses are the hot ticket items at the moment. A while back, no one could get enough of Zons. Before that there was Euphonic Audio and Epifani cabinets, before that ACME cabs, before that Eden amps and cabs. - Im not saying this is necessarily a bad thing, but does it make us any different from the kid who listens to Britney - Linkin Park etc? It seems there is often criticism of "fashionable" things, but to me it seems that a lot of bass players are no different? Any thoughts?
