The Tonight Show's Rickey Minor
Minor bases his instrument choices on the show's set, but generally sticks to one bass per night. He has three Sadowsky J-style basses (pictured), one Sadowsky P-style, and one Sadowsky 5-string, as well as 4-, 5-, and 6-string Ken Smith basses, and a ’68 Gretsch 6071. He goes direct to the PA through either an A-Designs REDDI tube DI or a Demeter tube preamp. He uses only a Boss FV-500 volume pedal and a Lehle 3@1 switcher on the floor.
