In case you missed it last weekend, chart-topping Morgan Wallen and his band hit the stage on NBC’s Saturday Night Live, armed with a couple of familiar instruments.
Bassist Luke Rice, a longtime Ernie Ball Music Man player, was trusting his SNL debut with the Joe Dart Signature Series bass, while guitarist Dominic Frost was sitting pretty with a Mariposa model guitar in Dorado Green.
The band played two tunes from the forthcoming effort, Dangerous: The Double Album, which is set to arrive on January 8, 2021. Each song performance further illustrated the tonal flexibility of the Dart bass and Mariposa guitar, both cutting through when needed, or laying low in the mix. Although these instruments were designed by artists with their personal performance needs in mind, the in-house crafted pickups, friendly player design, and build dependability makes these models applicable to all genres, even in front of millions of viewers.
Check out the performances below.
Along with the Joe Dart bass, Luke Rice also uses the Ernie Ball Music Man Bongo.
Morgan Wallen and the band use Ernie Ball strings to create their sound. Including Regular Slinky electric guitar strings, Earthwood Medium and Earthwood Medium Light acoustic strings, and Super Slinky bass strings.
