Nice bass grooves ,does anyone know what type bass Victor is playing , seems he stays with that particular bass more than others.
Doug is playing a Spector bass and I like that bridge he has ,but I cant see the emblem on Victors bass. My bridge is not locked in and I can easily move my strings by pushing on one side of the E or D string , is this bad or what ,or does it not matter, its a new standard Fender J. bass. By the way I have harmonics down all in one day, I was applying too much pressure.

I saw Doug Wimbish at the Bass Boot Camp this year! He is definitely a master with regard to getting unbelievable sounds out of a bass guitar. I sat there with my mouth opened, along with all of the students and the instructors for the entire master class! This video was just a small example of what Doug can do! He’s amazing! Victor ain’t no slouch either!

I just wish they were hyping better amps, if Bugera thinks they’re doing themselves any favors making these two’s tone so meh I beg to differ. Luckily they’re both such monster players it doesn’t throw them off too much.
