Stingray and the blues

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by PilbaraBass, Feb 27, 2005.

  1. I saw a dvd of George Thoroughgood and the Destroyers the other night. The bass player was playing a MM Stingray with a pick. It had a very nice destinctive growl and cut through the mix nicely, yet was not overly brittle.

    I think it fit in well with George's "in your face" style of blues.
  2. Stingrays - good for everything. If you like them (I do).

    You cannot play the blues with a bass that lists over 200$.

    Played many a blues gig with a Stingray.

    Only those who have never done it are surprised.
