Does anyone know what type of bass the bassist froma alien aunt farm is using?
it was a custom made
Custom made Dave Parr Six Stringer
I know this thread has been done before.
Anyway, the bass in the Smooth Criminal video is definitely a Ken Lawrence Brase.... The bass player from AAF does also have a custom Dave Parr 6 which you can see him playing in one of the issues of Bass Player (I forget which). One interesting thing about the custom 6 is that he's got some wood scooped out of the body at the base of the neck on the treble side so he can get his fingers under the strings for popping/pulling.
I am the only person who proberly thinks this, but that bass is sick. What a waste of wood.
Definitely a Kenneth Lawrence Brase 6. I'd get one.
I love these!
If I had the money, it would be mine!
Check out Bassplayer Magazine's review of the Brase fiver from their "5 string shootout" in the January '97 issue.
Go to bassplayer.com and click on the "Gear" link.
Go to farmclub.com and search for the "Movies" Video. In that he's playing his custom one. The Smooth criminal one is the Brase. That is one beefy lookin SOB....the bass that is...
Doesnt sick mean good now-a-day's?
anyways, i believe i was the other person who originaly asked this question, i asked it back in june after i saw them live.
yeahKL put that horn on the neck tokeep the tension tight while allowing extremely low action only in the 5 and 6 string models,I think it's ulgy/cool but I say form over function.....unless chicks are watching.
Bass Alone has 'em
To each his own, I suppose.
At least it has a handle so you can carry it without a case. Nice wood though.
I agree that it is fairly ugly. That handle thing totally blows it. It is original though.
Didn't KL get the idea from Fodera?
oh god that is ugly. I think bunnybasses should post this one up
The Dave Parr 6 is not the one he uses in that video. The bass with the "handle" is the one. Everyone is saying it's a 6. I thought it was a 7. Pretty nice though. But the body shape wouldn't look good on a 4. Only big basses. IMO.
It's kind of like the Sarah Jessica Parker of basses...you can't really decide if it's hot looking or repulsive...
I do believe so. I read somewhere (either in BP or on the KL site) that Ken Lawrence actually ran that design by the Fodera guys to make sure that they wouldn't be angry at the similarities. I personally think that the Brase looks awesome for a 6+ stringer, but something doesn't strike me with the 5...
