The Bass of the Bass player in Cake

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Impulsee, Dec 24, 2002.

  1. Has anyone see "the distance" music video by cake??~?? i really love the sound he gets from his bass, but i cant figure out what kind it is. It looks like a fender "sting" signature series, but im not sure. Any ideas??~??

    From what I have read he has used the same P bass for years. He might have been using a very old Fender P, which is what the Sting P is based on. He also might have just been holding that bass for the video. That happens a lot.

    Sounds like a P-Bass with the tone rolled all the way off to me. Sounds GREAT!

    I'd defintely advise against basing your tone on what someone is using in a video. Most of the time, that has nothing to do with what they used to record the song. Then agin, it's cool if you hear something you like and that try to emulate that on your gear. You may find a part of your voice that you weren't aware of.
