Just out of curiosity, does anyone have any info on what flats Meshell uses on her jazz??
Bass Player had a little blurb from her a couple of months or so ago. Said she was using Labella mediums if I remember correctly.
Another article (Bass Player as well IIRC) said she had a set of TI flats on her old Jazz.
I just looked at the article in that recent issue of BP, and it's medium LaBella flats. I can't imagine her using TI's. TI's are so not her sound.
I really thought there was an earlier BP article that indicated she had TI's on the jazz. Used to be able to access archive articles online but can't seem to now.
Meshell uses La Bella 760QM Quarter Wound
How do these differ from the other LaBella flats ?
And in at least one interview I read she said she didn't know what was on the Jazz bass because they'd been on there so long.
They're warm like flats but ones that you can still slap. They have a fat bottom yet clear top. More modern sounding than my 760FL's. They are the best pairing with a Fender Jazz imo. Flats are better suited for a Precision.
+1 I remember a few interviews where she said she's had them on so long that they're either Fenders or LaBellas; she can't remember which. If I remember correctly they were on the bass when she got it.
