ABOUT

Looking for an over-qualified bassist to record and play original songs somewhat in the vein of Sheryl Crow/Tom Petty. Limited gigging to be determined. I assume you have limited time on your hands as do I. I'm a former professional musician and recording engineer and I have songs you might like, a semi-pro studio in my house, and a good drummer.

EQUIPMENT

I can't possibly list it all, but I have a collection of 11 guitars, a mandolin, and a banjo. I have classic amps and modern digital modeling amps (and a newish Ampeg bass amp BTW). 3 f-ing wha-wha pedals :) I have a reasonable mic collection of neumanns, lots of Sm57s, etc. Well-treated room to play in. PA with KRK speakers. Monitoring through Yamaha NS-10s and KRK VX8s. Several recording preamps. 8 channels of digital I/O. Record in Reaper on a Macbook Pro with a 4K external display.
