    Chris Jouanou is his name.

    Last time I saw them he was playing G & L basses and SVT amps. Don't know what strings.

    He does use a pick.

    I liked their first two records best.:D

    Hmmm, interesting to say the least. He gets an awfully nice sound frome them...Do you know what model G & L, And, I know that the pickups he has in it CAN'T be stock in the least...they sound active, some EMG or SD perhaps?

    G&L 2000, and Im certain they are stock.

    G&L have some of the most complicated electronics and are known for there preamp/p-ups.

    Hey may use a G&L 2500 also.

    His sound is alot like some of the early 90's Helmet recordings.
     
  5. Go to this site:

    http://www.bassplayer.com.au/
    And click on 'Players'.

    It is the store that supplies Chris's gear and has a little info on him.
    It says he only uses strings designed by The Bassplayer.

    Yeah, He uses Players strings and IMO they arent very good.
    Ive met him a few times hes a very easy going guy but he doesnt really know too much about bass.

    I see, he's a pretty good player for that genre of music though, IMO. I really would like to get a sound similar to his, it's kind of the one I've been looking for, and I imagine with all those knobs and switches, I can find "my sound". So now, I just have to find $1300 for a L-2000..hehe, anyone?
