    During his stint with david Sylvain, ie Taking the Veil? There is a greivous lack of info on this excellent player.

    Maybe a picture of him with the bass would help?

    I see the thread title and I keep wanting to say, "A Fender P with maple neck, strung with Rotosound flats.", and have to remember that you're talking about Ian Maidman - not Iron Maiden.

    I used to love me some Japan. Some of that stuff gets, um, dated? But anyways, the bass in that particular video looks to me like a Wal. And judging by the mwows and mwahs going on I'd assume there ain't no frets on that thing.

    Perhaps the reason why it's hard to find info on this player is because Ian Maidman became Jennifer Maidman a while ago. An excellent bassist, seen here in a couple of recent videos:

    Might I ad that no one except Steve Harris makes flats sound like this... unless it's an Harris clone...

    Could be because most of us never heard of them or him???

    Thanks, I did not know that!

    Cheers for that!

    I kept looking at the video, one shot just about lets you see the headstock - Wal.

    Thanks for the help guys.

    We're all terrible, aren't we. Was also thinking Iron Maiden.
