ABOUT

I'm an intermediate Bass Player, with gigging & stage experience! I read bass tab and I know my notes. I play finger style bass. I'm not a slapper and popper, or a pick player. I play in the pocket and hold down the bottom end. I've been in some really good bands in in California and some really crappy bands also. I live in Crossett, Arkansas now. I'm working on meeting other musicians, so thatI can put another good band together and start giving again.

EQUIPMENT

I mainly play my white Gibson Thunderbird bass, my 1962, along with my 1975 Fender Jazz basses, my active real ESP E II bass that's made in Japan and my Hofner 500/1 bass. As for heads and cabs that I use? I use an Ampeg BA 500 combo amp, along with a Peavy Black Widow 210 cab that gives me five hundred watts of power. I also use a 400 watt SWR Headlite head, with two 210 GK cabs. All of my heads, have tube pre-amps, so that I get that nice fat, rich warm tone, along with XLR outs.
