    Mike Merritt. He's a NYC session bassist (and son of a session bassist) and as mentioned above he normally uses Lulls and I've also seen him using vintage Fenders, a Zeta educator and Sadowsky. He lists all his gear on his website:

    He is a bad ass cat. I love that jump swing riff he plays at the beginning of the theme song every night. Great tone also.
