På Polices reunionturné spelade han sin Precision '57 eller en kopia av den genom en Ampeg SVT4 med 8x10". Det är väl troligt att han använde ampegförstärkeri när det begav sig också...
Edit: Hittade en rad om hur han spelade in: "He always used his old Fender jazz bass, and it was never put through an amplifier. I only ever DI'd it, and in those days, it always had a bit of Boss chorus pedal on it."
Mera: "Sting, meanwhile, alternated between a DI'd Fender Jazz and a Steinberger bass, while also utilising Brian, the nickname bestowed upon his body-less Dutch upright electric double bass, to double-track the root notes. This, together with the small amount of chorus pedal on the guitars, thickened the sound."
Sting would always overdub his bass," Padgham recalls, "and although he's a terrific musician, I have to say that his playing could be quite sloppy. This wasn't helped by him bouncing up and down on his jogging mat, and asking him to please bounce a little less would only encourage him to do it more."
