I was just down in Dallas, TX for work and got the chance to see a Blues guy by the name of Shawn Pittman. I specifically wanted to see them because Preston Hubbard, the bass player for the Fabulous Thunderbirds is Shawn's new bass player. I don't know and didn't ask what make his bass was. It looked pretty old and beat but sounded good. It was hooked up with a Biesele pickup/ preamp and was the DP model. Does anyone here use these? I did a search here on TB but found nothing. They seem to be a bit spendy but I could use my Bass Max into the preamp since it's got an input for a piezo or a mic. The only places that I could find on the web that carry these is Biesele or Hammond Ashley and they are the same price. But if anyone could give me some info on these I'd appreciate it.
