He says so in an interview in this month’s Bass Musician Magazine.
Hutchinson is interviewed by Rick Suchow (no slouch himself when it comes to bass). In addition to running down HH’s career (which includes a longtime stint as Bonnie Raitt’s bass player), Hutchinson opines about his love for the uBass:
“I just did a record with George [Marinelli] and Ricky [Fataar] from Bonnie’s band, and I used it on one of the demos. It’s so good that when we overdubbed on the demo, I couldn’t replicate that bass sound with anything else. It almost sounds like a fat upright, or an early Bill Wyman Stones-y sound, it’s a really cool sound. And so it works in the studio.”
