    As a big fan of his music I have always caught myself wondering what bass he plays and I'm preety
    sure he's got some sorta effects pedal too, so if anyone knows please let me know. And then we can all know. And...thanks upfront.

    Eric used a MM Sabre, some kind of custom bass with G&L pickups (same dude who made one of Brad's guitars, Dan something, I think), and an upright. I think he's usign SWR gear now, but I don't know much about the LBDA, so I can't verify it, but I've heard he uses Big Bens, Big BErthas, and a Henry 8x8. I th ink he uses flatwound strings, too. his tone's great,a dn thankfully not that hard to get, but playing like he does is a whole nother story.

    One of the best pl,ayers of the 90s, IMHO

    Thank you for the information.

    And yes, playing like him is a different story altogether
