    If thats the DVD I'm thinking of, its from the period of time when he was playing a Modulus Quantum 5, after he moved on from a Warwick Thumb 6, but before switching over to the Flea 5.

  7. In that dvd, he uses a black Modulus Flea Bass 5, and a black Modulus Flea Bass 4 (with the influence sticker - which i beleive is his snowboard company)....he also uses a fretless quantum in songs like Two Step....

    he's a great guy, i met him and chatted, got photo and signature when they came to australia....

    This is exactly what is listed on the DMB web site for gear for Stefan.

    http://www.davematthewsband.com/road/bandgear.html

    Also, check out page 5 of the Modulus catalog here:

    http://www.modulusguitars.com/v2/pdf/modulus2002listprice.pdf

    I guess the software deletes references to brands in URLs, so the link above may not work. But if you go to the modulus website, you can click on the catalog link and go to page 5 from there. You will see a featured picture of Stefan endorsing the Flea.

    "The Central Park DVD" features a Modulus Flea 5, 24 fret, Modulus Flea 4, 24 fret, and Modulus Quantum 5, fretless. He's also been seeing using fretted Modulus Quantum 5's, fretless Warwick Thumb 6's, and fretted Warwick Dolphin 4's, like in the "Listener Supported" DVD. My fave tone he ever achieved was on that DVD (the latter). That Dolphin and Quantum just sound amazing through that Meyer rig! :bassist:

    He is one of my favorite bassists. Any more you see him using a variety of gear. I've seen him using The Hill basses, Lulls, vintage Fenders, even a MM Stingray. He's also back to using a lot of Modulus stuff. As far as amps go, He's used Ampeg for years, but this year he's using David Eden.
