Watch the Tone and Gear online guitar lesson by David Santos from Focus On: Latin Bass

I play Music Man "Stingray" basses with DR Flatwound strings and Hartke bass amps, which allows me to simulate an acoustic bass or an Ampeg Baby Bass sound. Many Latin bass players use the aforementioned Ampeg Baby Bass, which is an electric upright bass. A South American Company named Sendel makes a version of an electric upright bass that is commonly used as well. Some Latin bass players play a traditional acoustic bass also referred to as a double bass, upright bass, or acoustic bass, while many Latin bass players opt to play modern electric bass guitars.
