    RIP Duck Dunn

    Just heard that Duck Dunn has died. For those who get it, you know who he was. For you kids and heathens, he was the bassist for Booker T and the MGs, and better known as the guy with the Jack Williams fro in the Blues Brothers band.

    Every time I hit that middle pickup on my Big Al and think "P bass time" I think of him.

    Here's an apocryphal story for Jack:

    Duck always used flats, which of course, last a long, long time. Once a string, many years old, broke. Duck said "Geez, it was just getting broken in."


    Desert Gold F13843 05 Bongo 5 HHp
    Blue Dawn F11199 07 LE Bongo 5 Hp fretless
    Candy Red F23343 08 Bongo 5 H
    Tangerine Pearl F28251 2011 Big Al 5 SSS

    BP: "I am very proud of many of the creations at ebmm but none more than the Bongo. Every day the cult grows and it makes it all worthwhile."

    trussrod adjustment:
    Click here for an image!
    less relief / flatter = lower action
    more relief / bow = higher action
    do NOT use cheap tools to adjust with. they break and scrape up your bass!

    if you have a 100th namm sr4: the truss works the other way around on those!

    i have no affiliation with eb other than i love their basses

    I probably fall more towards the whippersnapper end of things, but I still know who he was and always will be.... One of the true masters of our chosen instrument! RIP for sure.

    Even though I live in a "Mustang Sally Free Zone," I believe much of his music will be played today.

    Thank you, Duck Dunn, for all those great bass lines we all try to emulate.

    I stole from him mercilessly. So much of what I want regarding tone was defined by him. Plus he was one funny sumbitch.

    Another great one gone.

    Past away in his sleep after a night of gigs. Seems right. It still makes me sad.
