"This time I used a Gibson EB-2 hollowbody that made it on the record a whole lot. The EB-2 has such a great midrange, but it has a baritone switch, too, so it got some insane low end that is so heavy. It sounds nuts! Otherwise, I used the same setup I’ve used on the last few records. Almost everything was running through the Ampeg B-15 I always record with, and I used my ’65 Fender Jazz Bass for a few songs."more
The item can be seen at 46:50 in "Does Humor Belong in Music", a live Frank Zappa performance at the Pier in NYC from 1984. It was purchased from a friend at age 16 and was the bass he owned when he first auditioned with Frank in 1981. It currently has flatwound strings on it, to contrast with the roundwound sound of the Precision bass he owns.more
