The recording studio provides the opportunity to experiment with more sounds, and Dave uses a variety of basses when recording. The primary choice is still the Bongo, including the 6 string model. Having used Sterlings for years, Dave gravitates to that bass for certain sounds. He also frequently uses the Stingray 5 and the Sterling 5. For fretless work, Dave favors his Bongo 5, and an older Stingray 5.more
This bass has a nice active Humbucker and sounds terrific. If you've ever played one then you know the sound that has been played on many famous albums over the last few decades. It's pretty lightweight and very playable. I'm mainly a guitar guy and never really given much thought to playing bass until i got one of these. It's just a great bass guitar.
