    Wow... I just got the new Poncho Sanchez, and Tony Banda's bass playing is absolutely fantastic. I'm a slab player that's just started playing my jazz god buddy's upright. Tony uses some kind of an electric upright I've never seen before. It sounds fantastic -- not exactly like an upright, but *perfect* for the music. I'm starting to get into latin in a big way (check out my band www.radiolachusma.com) and I gotta know this guy's secrets!

    Anyone want to trade me one of them upright 'lectrics for my Pedulla Pentabuzz? :D

    Hello,
    Since nobody else chimed in to help you, I thought I'd point you in the direction of Tony Banda himself. You can quite easily reach him through his website ...
    www.bandabrothers.com

    He's a total sweetheart and a very approachable guy, as well as a smokin' bassist, of course. I'm sure he'd be happy to share a few "trade secrets" with you.

    Sincerely,
    Jill Azola
