    Looks like an Alleva Coppola in the vid...
     
  3. Definitely a custom alleva coppolo 5, fantastic instruments
     
  4. I've been freaking out over that track for a few weeks, how awesome is that throat singing towards the end? Bought the CD DVD combo.

    Seeing them in March... so pumped.

    The P is a 70's Fender. The Jazz 5 is Alleva Coppolo.

    I saw them last week at Berklee for the first time. Tight band.

    From where I was sitting, it looked like a Fender P bass.

    Anyone know if he has flats or round wound strings on that thing? His tone is killer!
     
  10. Definitely flatwounds on his P-bass. It's really difficult to get that depth in tone with roundwounds.
    Also, his P-bass looks like an all maple '60s Fender to me.

    "Can you give us a rundown of your gear?

    I play a 1976 Fender Precision bass with a maple neck that I acquired in a drum shop in Greenville, South Carolina for $700. I talked him down from $900 because they obviously had no idea what they had. It was in bad shape so I did had to fix it up a bit. I guess it was owned by some guy who played at his church in the mountains every Sunday. But he just played acoustic bass, so the electric just sat in his closet for twenty years or something. So that’s kind of like my baby. I use D’Addario Chrome Flatwounds on that.

    For more vintage gear, I have a 1967 Hofner 500/1 Beatle Violin Bass strung with D’Addario Tapewounds. I love that bass. I have a ’78 Fender Mustang with a maple neck. Then I have a 5-string Alleva-Coppollo, which I love. I’m not really a 5-string guy, but I put it on every once in a while and I love it. It’s got kind of a mint green finish with a black pickguard and rosewood fingerboard."

    I saw Snarky Puppy live this last Sunday, and I took a phone snapshot of his pedalboard. Sweet tone (he played a -P with flats).

    I was sitting on row 2, barely 10 feet away from him. I saw him use the other pedals just a little bit (if anything at all), but the MB Octaver he used a lot !

    BTW, himluis1, that pic is not from Sunday, right ? Michael was wearing a blue shirt that said "Tots som el Barça" (we are all Barça). :)
