UBBB(Unindentifiable Beastie Boys Bass)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by FungusHumungous, Oct 31, 2004.

  1. Recently saw the Beasties and was quite impressed (don't knock them, thats not what I'm here for).

    But I was confused by what exact bass Mr. Adam Yauch was using.
    Kind of reminds me of an Ovation Magnum but I'm not an expert.
    You be the judge.

    I love the line from Remote Control or Triple Trouble. I was a little disappointed by their last album (5 Boroughs), though. It didn't really have that Beastie sound. I still love 'em though!!!!!!!!!!
  9. Saw them at MSG- the most amazing show I have yet to see... and its coming out on DVD!!!!


    PS- thanks for the ID
