    i was just wondering the same thing.

    that thing has gotta draw a lot of power.

    but then again... if i had the money to buy all that stuff.. i wouldn't really be worried about the electric bill

    He gets the gear AND Shakira! :bassist:
  7. He wins. Contest over.

    He must've been bestowed with an abnormal amount of GAS.

    I bet all the cooling fans on that setup work as central air...

    Ha ha .... :D

    I've had six F-basses, and they're probably some of the best instruments on the planet.

    These days, I play a Roscoe fretless, and an MTD fretted (which I'm about to sell, probably)....

    And it's nothing against F-basses. 'cause I've enjoyed every minute I've ever played on those 'boards.....

    But I agree with the concept, of "relative benefit" - there are several dozen manufacturers that I could probably point to as "cool" - but there's only perhaps one or two, that can meet all my needs.

    Just like women, in a way.... :D:D:D

  15. Actually he just might have one or two F basses. Ask him.

    Someone asked him later in that thread if he had a Mellotron, MiniMoog, and Arp2600, and he posted a picture of all three in his studio.
  16. What a great looking studio! The live room looks real cozy.

    It's really cool to look at, and it'd be a lot of fun to run around in for a few weeks. But I can't help but wonder "do you really need all that?" How much of that do you think he uses regularly? I understand that it's nice to have all those options, but I'm still partial to the 'less is more' philosophy. A bass, an amp and a 4-track is basically all I need to be happy.

    Still, these things are fun to see how ridiculous some people's GAS is. Has anyone read the TapeOp article on David Gilmour's Astoria studio? Talk about obsessive!!
  18. Remember in the first Batman, when Bruce Wayne(Michael Keaton) was showing that blonde(forgot her name) around his mansion?

    They walk into one room and Wayne says something like "And this room...actually, I'm not sure I've ever been in this room."

    Got the feeling the same vibe applies to alot of his gear. A whole lot of it.

    But I do gotta say... DAYUUUM!!!

    According to him at least... yes, he uses all of it.

    dryheatbob: yeah, I know how that is. There are a lot of rooms in my house that aren't used (exercise room especially ;)), and I presume Bruce Wayne's is bigger.
