Well; if I am limited to five basses...

(1.) Zon Fretted Hyperbass (OK, it does not exist. But in a perfect universe, it would!).
(2.) Fender American Jazz (Either the American Standard or the American Special).
(3.) Yamaha six-string (Probably my John Myung JM Original).
(4.) Ibanez SRX 595 five-string (The five-string that I keep coming back to).
(5.) Fender American Precision (Because every bassist absolutely must have a Precision!).

1. My Fender P Special (J bass pickup in bridge) - maple fretboard, Olympic white with tortoiseshell pickguard. For general, all round use.

2. Rickenbacker 4003 in Mapleglo. For anything from indie through to stoner rock and prog.

3. Warwick Corvette $$ 6 string. Just for messing around with, and heavier/more technical music.

You said basses, so...

4. B&S 6/4 Neptune CC Contrabass Tuba. An absolute monster - one of the biggest tubas available on the market, and with a sound to match. For use in orchestras, adding a massive amount of depth to the sound that the trombones and double basses wish they could make With this, I would use a Perantucci PT-88+ mouthpiece.

5. 1980s Besson Sovereign 982 Eb Bass Tuba (with the early swan-neck 981 leadpipe for a fatter, more warm sound). For use in brass bands, solo recitals and for lighter orchestral pieces (because I hate reading bass clef for an F tuba and with an Eb, you can easily cheat by reading it as transposed treble, and adjusting the way you look at the key and the accidentals). With this, I would have my selection of bass tuba mouthpieces, for different applications, including Denis Wick 3L, Bach 24AW, Bach 18 and PT-82.

Hopefully something a bit different.

Korg Kronos X 88 keyboard.


Is the Kronos X a significant improvement over the old Korg Oasys? Jordan Rudess played an Oasys in the Dream Theater Score concert DVD and I have wanted one ever since.
