Okay, I've been hiding in my closet for too long now, and I thought I would come out and face the world with the revelation that.... I KNOW NADA ABOUT BASS-GEAR! There, I feel so much better now. It just seems that everyone talks about Zon's and Roscoe's and this and that, but frankly, I couldn't tell the difference between one and the other. If they have strings and I can make them sound decent, that's all that matters to me. I prefer to concentrate on music, rather than the brand of tool used to make it. Am I alone here? I feel vindicated by the fact that Jeff Berlin seems to be as gear-ignorant as I am.
