ABOUT

are you a band looking for a bass player? i'm looking to join a band or jam with a few like minded individuals. would like to hit that rock in that 1975-1985 range, where the distortion was good, not alot of effects. think early nwobhm and similar. i'm influenced by a variety of others as well - and it is a wide variety (i am not pigeonholed to one genre specific). currently i have been playing zitti e buoni from maneskin, seasons in the abyss from slayer (intro) and chaise longue by wet leg to really widen it out. open to originals or covers if the situation is right (no i am not interested in your tribute band or your drop C band - though i like listening to both). i like to write riffs, convinced myself i can sing back-up and if the band thing doesn't pan out - then i could use a writing partner. whether that be on bass, or sliding over to rythm guitar (no leads) - which is 90% of my 'gram stuff, just riffs. i have stuff on soundC and the TUBE as well. shoot me a message, maybe we connect maybe we don't - but it'll be good talking music and influences. age range of (40-60 - i'm 52) #distortion

EQUIPMENT

i only have one spector bass, which i have used exclusively for the last two decades...i run it through a fender BXR300C which gives me the perfect blend once i plug in my zoom pedal - for bass you not only hear, but feel....for rythms, i have (2) fender squires and a little practice amp (plus my mini smokey amp for travel and extension plugging)...the drums and cymbals are frankensteined with a little of this and a little of that (no double bass pedal yet)...right now i'm just blasting in my makeshift home studio with my zoom mrt-3 drum machine hooked into my old tascam 464 4-track...i also have an alesis multimix usb that i run into a windows system through cubase (but i am far from an expert).
