Ernie Ball Joe Dart
Ernie Ball Music Man introduces the all-new Joe Dart Signature Bass collection. Built upon the success of the original Joe Dart Signature Bass, Ernie Ball Music Man and Vulfpeck's Joe Dart have developed two new additions for 2021: the Joe Dart in Black Velvet and the all-new Joe Dart Jr. (Short Scale) in Olympic White. The Joe Dart Jr. is limited to only 50 instruments worldwide.

The Joe Dart Artist Series Signature Bass is perfect for players who love simplified controls with a rich passive tone. The Joe Dart bass features a lightweight ash body, 22 stainless steel frets, one humbucking pickup, .045 - .105 Ernie Ball Flatwound Bass Strings, and one volume control for a distinguished funky low-end punch and attack you won't find on other passive basses. Available in Natural Velvet or the all-new Black Velvet finish.

The Joe Dart Jr Artist Series Signature Bass is the younger sibling of the popular Joe Dart bass. With its custom contoured body and simplified single humbucking layout, the Joe Dart Jr packs a serious punch in a convenient smaller package. The bass features a lightweight ash body, select maple neck, and a passive neodymium pickup that is at the heart of its warm, punchy tonality.

No controls or equalization to color the sound; the tone is manipulated solely by the user's technique and finesse. Finished in Olympic White, the Dart Jr is nicely outfitted with 22 stainless steel frets, chrome hardware, and comes set up tuned down to C standard with custom .045 - .105 Ernie Ball Short Scale Flatwound Bass Strings. In their first-ever partnership, Ernie Ball Music Man and Mono have joined forces to offer the all-new Joe Dart JR Signature Bass Guitar with a Mono M80 "Vertigo" Gig Bag. The Joe Dart Jr is limited to just 50 instruments worldwide.

A deep dive into faux amps, futuristic setups, and how to use modern technology’s powers for good.

The jump between analog and digital gear has never been more manageable. It no longer takes a rack full of outboard gear with a six-figure price tag to help realize not only the tone you have in your head, but the expansive workflows that started to pop up in the early ’80s. We’re now about a decade into the modern era of digital modelers and profilers and it seems like the technology has finally come into its own. “This is really the first time in a while where you can have bar bands playing the exactsame gear as stadium acts,” says Cooper Carter, a Fractal Audio Systems production consultant who has done sound design and rig building for Neal Schon, James Valentine, John Petrucci, and others.
