A Mesa 400+ rack mount with 12 6550's and EV 18"s is definitely going to sound different than through an analog console, 100 watt Vox or a 50 watt Bassman.

Especially through a monster, stadium worthy PA system.

Found this too...



Interesting his tech mentions other people buy Hofners and they may sound good, but Paul's
is unique in some of its tonal character. Age being a good part of that.

Insured for $2 Million too, from other articles.

That's a good bit of appreciation on a bass that cost the band about 30 Pounds new about $49.00
My German built '66 was much more expensive, costing my mom 400 DM or $99.00
with gig bag.
