Equipment used by the band
Joe started off with a standard wood
Fender Precision bass. But very soon he found a metallic red Fender
Precision special that had active pickups on it and that was that, he
loved it and wouldn't play anything else!
His amplification was not the usual
bass gear used at the time. Most people went for a 15" cab, but Joe
opted for a Fender 6 x 10 cab with a Carlsbro 400 watt bass head. he had
a real distinctive punchy sound with the combination he used, especially
with the active pickups on his Precision Bass.
