    Ben Street is a great player!
    And Avishai is amazing...
    Is Ben playing his own bass here? What strings, what kind of microphone? Anyway great tone and intonation.

    I've never seen Ben p[lay a bass like that. I'm guessing it's a loaner. He makes any bass sound beautiful IMO
     
  5. I'm almost positive that's the bass that Jed Kriegel made for him, and I think that's the one in the Dan Weiss video as well. I've played that bass a few times, most recently in Jed's shop last Friday, and it's a really great instrument

    strung with spiro e & a / oliv d & g. he strings the d backward through the tailpiece.

    It’s a Schoeps mic. Also respect to Jonathan Blake on drums.

    I had read that he had a new bass and thought that perhaps I was mistaken. I haven't seen him for years actually, now that I think of it..

    He is one BAAAAAD ASS bass player. That hasn't changed.

    I know he used the Genssler Wraps for a long time. Looks like he is using a Felix too.

    Yes, Felix indeed and usually into a little (10”) QSC K series.
