Sponge Bass = Hofner President Bass + flatwound strings x bathroom sponge.

Back in the day the original Fender Precision bass came with a plate over the bridge with a dampener built in. Leo Fender patented the bridge mute in 1966 with the idea of mimicking the deadened thud of a double bass. But those crazy rock n roll kids weren't so keen and tended to remove the cover for more sustain.

But the lovely, woofy, woolly thud of dampened bass strings was embraced by many of the Motown players, Paul McCartney in the early days and most famously Carol Kaye, bass player on all the great Beach Boys recordings.

Sponge Bass re-creates that classic rounded thud with 1,296 glorious recordings of lovingly played individual notes.
