    Recently I had the pleasure of meeting one of my all-time favorite double bassists,Jim Creeggan of Barenaked Ladies, and I had asked him what kind of pickup he uses because I am infatuated with his bass tone.
    Well over the excitement of meeting my long time mentor I kinda forgot what brand he siad he used but I BELIEVE he said it was a Sherman.
    However, I am not having much luck finding their web site address.Does anyone out there know if perhaps I'm just spelling it wrong or maybe ,even better, does anyone know their web site address.

    Any help would be appreciated.Thank you.

    Could it be 'Shadow'? Two piezos that squeeze in the bridge wings?

    I saw a picture of his bass somewhere and it had a Wilson on it. It could have been an old picture.

    Yeah....I remember now...He does use a Wilson and he told me that he has recently been experitmenting with a Schertler....That's where I got Sherman from.
    Thanks to all for helping me out with this!
