    Seems like NO AMP for the Bassplayer is still working well for some Bands. Love it.

      John Clayton never uses a pickup. Somewhere I read that he carries an EV RE20 microphone in his bag and says, ‘Here. This is all you’ll need’. I heard him play when I was at uni in Australia and he has amazing projection.
