: : Does anybody out there know what this guy uses for amplification? Anything for that matter in regards to how he gets that incredible tone. I am a jazz player and really don't listen to any bluegrass (though I do like some). I have tried so many things to find the tone that he has and can't even come close. I am sure he is a far superior player than I but I can play alright too. It can't all be technique can it? That tone is keeping me up at night. I simply must have it!!! Somebody help me! Michael

: He discusses a bit about it in this writeup. Hope it helps.

Take my word for it - it's him - it's his technique - It's his exceptional talent -
it's his bass, it's his pick-up. He's the best classical player in the world or as good as anyone else and he plays good bluegrass and Jazz and who else can do that? I spent four days with him at an ISB convention in "93"
and he plays that great with no pick-up. Go watch him live one day and you'll see the same thing.
