Amazing Stingray tone - Ged Grimes, Simple Minds live video

Recommended Posts

Just fell over this last night whilst browsing youtube.......

I used to quite like Simple Minds (around the New Gold Dream era i suppose) but felt they went off the boil long ago - looks like they've got their mojo back more recently

This performance is awesome and has maybe my favourite Stingray tone - and Ged really nails the groove Derek Forbes brought to the band years ago

Wasn't Ged the bass player with Danny Wilson? I loved that band

Yep, awesome bass tone and it works so well for these tunes. Saw SM live recently and the bass did sound like that out front.😊

Saw Mel Gaynor at the weekend, He was playing a amazing 16th feathered bass drum pattern with only a single pedal, Amazing control and a great drummer.

I had this problem for ages too, Lozz. I bought (funnily enough seeing as he started the thread) Mudpup's USA SUB. It's a 2 band and sounds quite different to my old 3 band. In conjunction with more subtle EQ'ing (as opposed to the common method of maxing everything) I'm now getting that sound myself!

This is great . I've always been finger style only , and now trying to use a pick for the first time in 30 yrs . This is exactly the pick style I'm looking at - what a great player

Its a great example of how to lock in with a fab drummer too. Ged is playing pretty loose over the drums but they just sound so comfortable together - what a rhythm section!

Absolutely Jon! It's a ridiculously good bass that I bought from you with the idea of having it as a good quality backup to my Warwick Streamer LX. It's turned out to be easily the equal of it and in some ways I prefer the SUB. So much of that Stingray vibe but ballsier! Absolutely bloody steal at the prices they go for!
