    At about 3:15 into the video, when they come in close on the bass, check out the scallops on the highest frets. Most bassists would never need or want scalloped/scooped out frets, but this man is a shredder. If you watch to the end of the video, you can see him using them.

    Also at about 3:15, notice the two cable jacks. The one he's plugged into is for the (split coil) middle ...

    Boy am I late on this but I just found out (shocked) that Rob Grill, the long time bass player for one of the groups I might even be able to say I listen to at least one of their songs ever night before going to sleep (and also have seen the group many times live), has passed on. THE GRASS ROOTS. The man held the bottom for them for many of years, you didn't hear much from him as some great bass player but for me he did his job the right way as a bass player. So Rip to Rob Grill.

    From Wikipedia:

    Oscar Pettiford (30 September 1922 8 September 1960) was an American jazz double bassist, cellist and composer known particularly for his pioneering work in bebop.

    Pettiford was born at Okmulgee, Oklahoma; his mother was Choctaw and his father was half Cherokee and half African American. Like many people with African-American and Native American ancestry, his Native heritage was not generally known except to a few close friends, such as David Amram.

    Phil Jones PJPS SIX-PACK Bass Combo Amplifier

    From the Phil Jones Website:

    You are a bass player on the move - rehearsals in the morning, afternoon studio sessions and gigs at night. That's a busy life! Why make it harder on yourself by having to lug around large, bulky bass gear everywhere you go. You'd ...

    If you're anything like me, you love the sound of a bass guitar that howls its thunder with as much power as it rolls it!

    Check out these Kahler bass tremolo bridges. I am seriously thinking of getting one of these... in black.

    YouTube has started the process of shutting down the video channels that are big-time copyright violators. Some of the videos embedded in our TR posts are no longer available, even if the link remains.

    I am removing these duds as I find them. In the meantime, for those still up, all you'll get when you click on the link/video is a message saying it has been deleted due to copyright infringement. You can point them out if you come across them, but I'm going through everything anyway, so I'll find them soon enough.

    Some time back, we featured an article showcasing the Hipshot Extender Key, which is used to allow a fast switch between E and D on your E-string.
