Dean Dinning of Toad the Wet Sprocket has always been one of my favorite bassists - I love his lines and his feel, and he is a great harmony singer to boot. With that said I generally dislike his tone, especially on the Dulcinea album. Does anyone know what brand of basses Dean used? I can't recall... Thanks in advance! PS - Toad will hook up for a few dates this summer when GLen Phillips tours on his solo record. Toad shows are far and few between, with the band being more or less kaput, so get out to see 'em if you dig 'em!
