    hey mike
    first of all i want to say what an honor it is to communicate with you,you and entwistle are the reason i play the bass.my question is both technical and anecdotal.on corndogs video there is minutemen clip, outside,playing toadies, the big foist,and god bows to math.you're playing a fender precision
    with very pronounced p tone,i was wondering what equipment you were using,what exactly that bass was.to get such a cool sound,and also wether you actually liked that sound,as its the only time i've ever heard it from you.
    thanks

    james,

    what does the bass look like? is it a white fender precision bass? if it is, then it's crane's bass (he helped us on backups and trumpet on "project mersh").




    on bass, watt

    hi,

    yeah, that's crane's and it's from the 70s - a fender p-bass. good growl, you're right... I do dig that sound!
