    What bass Gets most of your Playing time?

    What bass Gets most of your Giging time?





    I know a couple people that have really nice Basses/Drums/Guitars that dont get outside of their house, like one of my friends has a Modulus Q6, but Only gig's a Used Ibanez BTB 406 that he has... Do any of you do this?

    right now, my main playing and gigging bass is an Ernie Ball Stingray. It's a solid, reliable bass that I can depend on most of the time. But I have a Modulus Flea Bass coming soon and that will most likely replace the stingray in both uses because it is more of the sound I am after and it is a road warrior.

    The ATK gets all the gigging time, and the vast majority of the practice time. Tonight at practice, though, I was on the Roscoe, and it felt wonderful, and I pulled out the Jazz last practice. Having alot of fun on the 4-strings lately.

    My '79 Fender Jazz gets almost all of my gigs. I have just received a new Benavente SC5, but I am still at the "can't get a fingerprint" stage! I think I will be using them both from now on though. They have different tones.

    My main practioce and soon to be gigging bass is my Spector REX2000/5. For a bit of variety, I'll also be using my Yamaha Attitude X!


    For recording I use my Spector NS5CR - a fair degree of sentimental value in that one - so it gets kept good....at least for now!

    For the past year it's been my Geddy Lee sig Jazz bass. Still finding new tones on that sucker. I forgot how versatile passive electronics (and creative right-hand techniques) can be.
