I've got a couple of his solo CD's. What he does with an acoustic bass is amazing! I highly recommend "The Word".
finally someone else who has heard steve bailey
No certain order:
Beefcake The Mighty
Steve who all are your fav's?
oh and i wanted to know which bass did u used in the control denied album,was it the carvin?
[Brown Carvin] 1996 Custom Carvin BB75F
I ordered this one from Carvin. I liked the way you could just go option crazy from their catalog. Since all their basses are made only after you order them, in a sense they're all custom. So this one became my new main one.
It's a stained koa wood body. Nice ebony fretless fingerboard, and active electronics. I've updated it with the new wider bridge and added the new preamp circuitry with the mid boost/cut and active/passive knob pull-out on the main volume.
The first appearance was on Elements Of Anger, almost all except for a few songs. It was on most of the Dark Hall cd. All but one song on Feeding The Machine, and entirely all of the Testament album, The Gathering. Also teamed up with it's counterpart to do the Control Denied album, The Fragile Art Of Existence.
[Black Carvin] 1999 Custom Carvin BB75
This one is fairly new and was the christening of my endorsement with Carvin. It was built just in time to make it on The Fragile Art Of Existence (Consumed, intro to What If?, Cut Down and all but the solo on the song The Fragile Art Of Existence where it's counterpart was used on that solo and the rest of the album).
It has active pick-ups, including that new massive music man looking one, and the now standard active/passive knob pull-out. The color is a see-thru black stain on an alder body.
