Steinberger???

Post by cobraman » Sat Feb 07, 2004 10:55 am

I bought a Steinberger (headless, solid graphite bass) like Geddy used in Grace under pressure. Anyone know why he stopped using that bass? They look funny, but sound great, and are great for bass players that also play keyboards.

Nah, a bassist is just someone who doesn't have enough ego to be a guitarist

He liked the feel but said that they had a dark sound. When he first tried using a Wal bass in the studio he loved the brightness of it so much that he ended up using it on the entire album (Power Windows) and played it pretty much exclusively for a few years after that.

I never got to hear why he moved from that to the Fender Jazz Bass. Anybody know?
