    Does anyone know what bass was used on this CD?
    Some of the tracks sound like a Stingray was used, but could it have been a Yamaha? love the bass tones on that CD.
     
  2. on tragic kingdom i think he used his yamaha (BB1600 or something?) for a lot of it. that's what he was playing in the "don't speak" video.
    didn't they have a very small self-titled CD before tragic kingdom? is that the one you're talkin' about? 'cause if it is, i dunno.

    Yeah, they had a self-titled album out before Tragic Kingdom. AFAIK, the Yamaha was the main bass on Tragic Kingdom, except when a 5string was required, then it was the Stingray.

    Yep, Tony Kanal did and still does play that Yamaha as his main bass....

    And YES, YES SHE WAS!! :D

    And when I saw them open for the Stones a few months ago he used one Yamaha for the whole show.

    That was there best album in my opinion, I like all the newer stuff but I really liked them when they were a true Ska band and Gwens brother wrote most of the songs.
    Yes it was the Yammi he was playing on that album.
    I think that it's still Tony's main recording bass.
