Does anyone know what strings John Clayton uses, specifically on this DVD/CD? There are a lot of close-up shots of John and his bass...the reason I ask is because (besides his sound being awesome) they look incredibly thin and almost translucent. Am I crazy? What's the deal here? Despite the awesomeness of the arco solo, there is a part where you can hear the bow get scratchy for a second. I definitely wouldn't call these orchestral strings by the sounds they're making, but there's a lot of things that could change the natural sound of a bass by the time I hear it out of my TV set.
