Jay Wasco’s Swiss Army bass – “Yup-that’s right. It’s a bass guitar with a midi keyboard mounted on it. Yes, the two are played simultaneously. The bass is played with the left hand alone by means of a guitar technique known as “hammer-ons” while the keyboard (which emulates a distorted slide guitar most of the time. among other things) is played with the right hand. This instrument has a weight equivalent to that of a small motorcycle, and as you might imagine, requires years of time and patience to “master“.” Check the Jay’s video page and don’t miss the Swiss Army Bass in action and also the Egotar version of Rocket Man!
