I was just reading thought the " Who plays a cheapo as their main bass??" thread and it got me thinking about times I've heard monster bass tones at a show only to find the bass player using very inexpensive gear. It has happened to me a few times, once with a guy playing a Squire jazz, another time with a cheap Peavey, and one time with a little kid playing on a Dean. It was always really hard to believe a cheap bass can sound good, considering the money I've spent on gear. I guess it says something about the player. Have you ever been at a concert or show and been surprised to hear sweet tone coming from a cheap bass? Do tell.
