If you’ve been sprattling to discover new tones, might we suggest that, instead of procuring a bunch of overpriced pedals that will only get stolen off the stage the next time you’re on a break at the neighborhood dive, you instead investigate this great vintage pocket bass? Turn this scrappy short-scale instrument up and it yields girning, unapologetically assertive tones. Turn it down and it produces Cimmerian, slightly less assertive tones. Either way, no one will soon forget its distinctively grinding sonic signature or unadorned proudly Spartan appearance. Rumor has it that that the celebrated Curtis Birch, from Earl “Buck” Dexter’s celebrated mid-1960s band, created massive textural tones from a similarly diminutive instrument. You can be like Curtis for only three bills. That’s cheap! Ships in a gig bag. $300
