Anyone seen this yet?:
WOW! that is one sweet looking bass, maybe they'll make it (or something similar) a regular production eventually.....
From the webpage: " Also, incorporated in the design, is an optional manual compressor called a “ramp” "
I'm glad to see PRS is doing basses again. With the pickup placement on that bass, it will probably sound pretty close to the Ken Smith that he has been using recently.
Looks awesome, but im not crazy about the purple color.
manual compressor...funny, and kinda true.
i've seen that before, but since its probably above my price range, i didn't really think about it...looks great though.
of course i don't really know who gary grainger is, so i never really thought about it
Gary Grainger is a great bassist. I first heard him with the r&b band, Pockets, which was produced by members of Earth, Wind, & Fire. He later played with John Scofield during the period when he got seriously into funk with lots of slap bass. "Blue Mood" was the first of at least two albums that Gary Grainger did with Scofield (he was slinging a Stingray back then!) Gary Grainger also has a band with his brother, a drummer, called Grainger. It is lots of funk jazz with wickedly tight grooves and funky playing. I have one album from them called "Phase I."
Any bass that can reproduce the sound I associate with him would be bright, but with good mids, and would have a nice, tight slap sound.
Please forgive me, but I think the title is "Blue Matter". Great, funky album with some unbelievable Dennis Chambers drumming. They did a couple of othre ones, as well, "Loud Jazz"(nice title) being one of them.
IMO, his best work with Sco is the live "Pick Hits". Gary is killin' on that record!
Cool post... yeah, the Loud Jazz CD really turned me on to a lot of ideas... wonderful playing and, at least for the time, wonderful sound... I assume it was a Music Man with the treble turned WAY up!
Sorry, "Blue Matter" is the title.
Dude, I wore out 3 copies of that on cassette back in the day, and I'm workin' on CD #2...gotta remember to get that one on the iPod!
Looks like it's using a Ken Smith bridge also. At least they don't have to change the name on the bridge if it is
No doubt...Grainger and Chambers are just about the baddest bass/drums funk duo one could ask for on that disc. Every rhythm section player that I have ever known that listened to that disc has always gone
Looks like you're right on both counts!!
Price: One hundred BILLION dollars!
