I love anthony's sound. I know there are many, many factors that play into his tone, but I want to focus on his rig. I have seen many posts concerning his gear and, in the end, I just can't afford the same stuff. So, let's post about some great (cheaper) alternatives for a great audiophile sound. ***Let me say- I know it won't be the same as I don't have his bass, his hands, or his ears and neither does anyone else. However, I would like to take elements from his tone (and gear) and make it my own. Since I he is MY favorite sounding bassist I am studying his technique, his philosophies AND his GEAR... ...Hopefully, we will eliminate any 'obvious' comments concerning anything other than his gear. Let's have serious discuss of how to construct a poor man's AJ/audiophile rig. Maybe we could even discuss some misconceptions and aids when considering an audiophile rig such as this.
