贝斯吉他大师Gary Grainger和他的PRS

Gary Grainger’s remarkable credits include four years in John Scofield’s band playing with Dennis Chambers. He has played with Frank Gambali, George Duke, and done innumerable studio dates with musicians like Verdine White of Earth, Wind and Fire.

Gary Grainger is also a PRS tradeshow clinician and plays bass in the Paul Reed Smith Band. Gary began work with Joe Knaggs and Paul Reed Smith on the Gary Grainger model Private Stock bass in 2003. PRS is offering these 5-string instruments through the Private Stock department.
The instrument has an unusual pickup arrangement, using four single coils combined into two “separated” hum-canceling pickups.

This provides the instrument with both a depth and clarity while simultaneously providing the instrument with a mid-range voice.

Also, incorporated in the design, is an optional manual compressor called a “ramp”, a beautiful 5-String Low-Profile neck with a 10″ fretboard radius, a specialized pre-amp, super thin Private Stock satin nitro finish and a newly design integrated neck joint in which the body and the neck are carved into one piece. This 5-string design includes a Private Stock carved, curly maple top with a mahogany back, rock maple neck and a rosewood fretboard.

Gary最牛逼的时候大约是和John Scofield,Dennis Chambers一起的4年。那是80年代中期。当然他也和诸多大师一起合作,例如,Frank Gambali, George Duke。等等等等。

他也一直在PRS乐队里为PRS做各种演示活动。

2003年开始通过PS部门做他的bass。5弦,PS carved curly枫木盖子,桃花芯back,rock maple 琴颈,玫瑰木指板,10寸弧度指板。拾音器是使用4个单线圈组合成的“分离式”双线圈。“特别”前级,超薄磨砂nitro漆。最新设计的合成琴颈琴体连接,琴颈和琴体通过这种连接方式可以carve成一体。

漂亮的琴。图片图片图片。

but我只听过他在John Sco的乐队里的一些东西,非常棒。应该不是用prs弹的吧。哈哈。

这个曲子叫pick hits,应该是80年代后期的录音?
