I made a trip to Mars today, and they switched about their bass section (and got rid of the fretless cort curbow! grr!) but they moved several basses which used to be way up high down low. One of which was the Sting Bass. I passed it over for a Standard Jazz at first, which I was mildly impressed with. Seems like all in all, quite I good bass. Then I laid my hands on the Sting Bass. *cue harmonious choir* Such a beautiful sound. I didn't like the Open E when the tone was up (I guess it sounded muddy, the best way to describe it would be that it was only half there, I suppose) but the slap tone.... I nearly defecated in my trousers (the nice way of putting it ) when I slapped on this baby. JoeRules Sting Bass Fund:$13 and counting!
