Phil - that's cool. I do like the online databases for owners to register on, when I had my Acoustic rig it was encouraging to see others who had a piece or two and some who had rooms full of similar gear.

I remember reading an article with Jason Newsted when he was in Metallica about some of the basses he has used in the studio and on tour. These included a Sadowsky, Alembic, and a Wal amongst many others.

 

I never really knew much about Wal basses until I read a recent BPM article with Justin Chancellor who states something along the lines of, when asked about what basses he uses,"A Wal [don't recall the model], it is the only one I ever needed."

 

After that, I decided to do some research on the company and found it to be one of the moust sought after basses on the market. That site, along with others, paint a great picture of what the Wal name is all about.

 

Phil, I salute you :) You should cherish that piece of wooden art (I am sure you already are) for as long as your fingers can muster the strength to play it.

He's the bassist for the band Tool.

 

Having seen JC, the bassist not the messiah, live four times at this point, I have to say that his bass tone is one of the finest crafted in rock and elsewhere, especially from the last tour. The article in BP talks about his huge signal chain, but the fact that he can also send his Wal direct to the board is neat--how much of that we hear I am not sure. I love the tone he gets though. Each note is evenly represented, high and low, and feels like just enough crystal clarity with varitone darkness.

 

Sorry for waxing poetic, I've been listening to this guy since I was 14. The only artist I've been obsessing over longer than that is Travis Meeks.

I do love JC tone too. Phil has a equaly great tone and a much simpler signal chain...

I'm sure Jeremy will be delighted to hear that! ;)

 

Yes, JC's tone is amazing, and Chancellor's is not bad either :D
