PRS Artist Rhonda Smith on Jeff Beck’s New Live Album

Posted Jun 22, 2015

Jeff Beck’s newest Live+ album is a compilation of some of his best performances from his 2014 tour with ZZ Top. Live+ was released on May 19 and features 14 live recordings from multiple venues as well as two new studio tracks - the first tracks Beck has released in five years. PRS Artist Rhonda Smith toured as Beck’s bassist during the recording of the entire live album. For the tour, she used a pair of PRS 4-String basses, one in a “Tequila Sunrise” finish and the other in white. Smith also recorded tracks in her home studio as part of Beck’s two new releases. / “I used the PRS in my studio and sent the tracks back to the UK. The PRS 4-string is my first choice in the studio because of it's rich, deep tones and the dialable, very powerful onboard preamp. Also, I love the super-strength of the neck technology which allows me to have a relatively low touch with no buzzing, tested in every climate…killer bass!” / Click here to listen to Beck’s new track “Tribal!”
