ABOUT

Retired US Marine who has been playing bass guitar since I was a teenager
However, due to my military service my playing has been sporadic at best. Anyhow, I have been a member of quite a few bands and have always given it my all regardless of my military situations. I have been playing a lot of Blues and R&B cover tunes and strive on mastering the bass lines, because, it matters to me and I understand the language of bass, So if you want a bass player who can groove, I'm that guy.

EQUIPMENT

5 String Alembic Epic, Fender American Standard Jazz bass V and Fender Elite Jazz V.. My trusted rig is a SWR Goliath II 4X10 bass cabinet and Fender TBP-1 preamp powered by a Carvin DCM1000 power amp. For big venues I add my Epifani PS115 extension cabinet. I don't normally use pedals, but when I do I use a Mutron III bass envelope filter..
