Does anyone know what kind of bass was played on Oatkast's song Prototype?
Don't know what kind of bass is being played. But the bass playing is Friggin DOPE!!! ....ain't it. Love those double stops and chords that are being played.
Oh Yeah! So this is my wife's cd and we were listening to it through town and even though it isn't my firtst choice of music it did seem fresher and more original than what I hear on the radio then all of a sudden....Prototype starts up...ahhh what a pretty guitar part and then...bawump. Niiiiice...
I don't know which bass they used, but that track is really great
Weren't Outkast the band who made the song "I'm sorrry Miss Jackson"? I love that song
If I remember correctly, he plays a Rickenbacker in the Hey Ya! video. I haven't heard Prototype though, but maybe it's the same one.
well, i don't really know much about outkast, but i remember reading a bass player article saying that the bass player played a yamaha bass, if that helps!
i think his name was preston crump?
i really don't know though!
Here's 2 articled on Preston Crump
actually I believe the bass that's in the heya video is a warwick but I havn't seen it in a while so I may be wrong. And to answer your question...Andre benjarmin plays a lot of his own bass stuff. And he plays warwicks often. As for my guess- its a warwick
The bassplayer on prototype is Aaron mills and he plays either a Spector or a Lakland or something else....
in the hey ya MV, he is playing a ric
Maybe he's never seen the video.
Okay, time for a view from the "inside". If Debra Killings (TRB) or "P Groover" Crump (BB) played it, it's a Yamaha. If Aaron Mills played it, it's a Lakie. Andre has a Warwick deal, but he also owns a P and a Rick.
I also read in Bass Player that Debra Killings said her Squire PRecision Bass Special Five is her main studio bass.
I thought on albums you would be using Fenders, etc, but not Squiers
I'm not surprised that a good musician would use a cheap bass. The Squire Precision Bass Special Five has a comfortable neck with wide string spacing and it gets a good J-bass sound. The pickups are noisy, but Debra Killings could have had her bass shielded. She is definitely a pro-level player, and in her hands, that Squier and any other decent bass, will sound good. I have often heard stories of studio musicians using inexpensive basses. Remember they are there to be recorded, not seen.
The Squier P Bass 5 sounds sweet
Out of interest, if her bass is Shielded, does that mean she simply put a metal frame over the pickups to stop them being noisy?
I only heard about shileding recently but don't know about it.
She probably would have had the control are shieled with paint or some sort of foil. that would great reduce noise.
Sweet, thanks for the info Dr. Cheese
Maybe the track wasn't cut during the shooting of the video?
Anyone think Chevy Chase and Paul Simon played all the instruments on "You Can Call Me Al"?
