    What basses did trevor use to record the faith no more albums with. Mainly the first one and what is he using on his solo album?

    He didn't play with Faith No More,he plays with Mike Patton on Mr.Bungle and someother stuff
  3. Bill Gould played bass on all the FNM recordings. Trevor Dunn played with Mr. Bungle and a couple of Mike Patton's other projects.

    Bill Gould originally played Gibson Rippers, then Aria Integras, then Zon Sonus(ses) (sonii?), all 4-strings, both finger and pickstyle (and the occasional bit of slap). The best known FNM bass sound is probably the Aria on The Real Thing and Angel Dust.

    (edit) Trevor Dunn mostly plays Alembics when he plays electric bass (he plays a lot of upright too). He was playing an Alembic Spoiler 4-string when I saw Mr. Bungle live a few years back.

    bill had a jazz bass too, doubt he used it though.

    trevor also has an alembic essence (?) 5 string that has a reverse headstock. and apparently used an ibanez bass to record early on.
  5. Trever has an Alembic Europa 5 string. And he uses a 4 string p-bass now.

    And in the early days(first Mr. Bungle cd) he had a 5 string Ibanez, and a fretless 5 string Peavey.

    And he plays upright.

  9. I saw Mr Bungle at Snocore 2000 with Puya, Incubus, and SOAD, and they got boo'ed off the stage. I dont remember what they sounded like now but nobody was digging them.

    I hope they were playing disco volante material. I find it humorous that all the bands on that bill are in some way derivatives of Mr. Bungle. Incubus got it's name from the song, "Mr. Nice Guy" for God's sake.

    Are you sure he used the Aria on Angel Dust? I could swear he already had the Zon when they recorded the album, as his bass tone on Angel Dust sounds super-fat and even.

    I remember reading somewhere (probably here, so grain of salt and all that...) that it was a Zon. Sure sounds like it.

    I swear RV is a fretless of some kind though...

    if im not mistaken he got the zons midway on the angel dust tour and used them on everything after that. so i think he used his arias to record angel dust.
