    Anyone know what equipment Gary Willis
    uses on :
    Tribal Tech - Face first ?

    Is that bastard using a 5 or 6 string? His bass sounds so damn deep sometimes.

    Umm, 5's and 6's have the same lower 5 strings.

    AFAIK GW used a 5. He just uses the entire fretboard. He's annoying ;)
     
  4. he uses his ibanez custom 5 strings. there is some info on them at his site, garywillis.com

    ...there's a decent Q&A("Ask Willis") forum at his site(Be afraid, be very afraid); also, the new Bass Frontiers[/o] mag covers Willis this month...in fact, he was asked why he doesn't use a 6-string(basically, he sez, "...on a fretless, the high "C" sounds too thin").
    Check it out...
     
  6. Mr K, looks like yer gonna have to change yer avatar soon, hey?

    <i>"He just uses the entire fretboard."</i>

    And more! He frequently uses "false" harmornics to get higher notes.
