    Current Setup:
    Current stage rig:
    Genz-Benz Streamliner 900
    Genz-Benz 112 + Avatar 112 - THE mini rig of dooooooom. It crushes most clubs with ease. Total actual weight = 66lbs, sonic weight = total heavioscity.

    Back Up Arsenal:
    Genz-Benz Shuttle 6.0
    Avatar 112 #2
    Various solid state heads in varying states of functionality
    Flite Cab 115
    Flite Cab 515
    1988 Hartke 210xl

    Basses:
    "BooBoo" - 2014 Karl Hoyt Basses Custom BigFatBass 5: Swamp ash body, deep C neck, and passive Nordstrand P/J pickups. (http://www.hoytbasses.com/)

    "Yogi" - 2012 Karl Hoyt Basses Custom 5: Zebra wood top and back, purpleheart core, with Seymour Duncan Vintage Soapbar active pickups. (http://www.hoytbasses.com/)

    "Horse" - 2003 Lakland Skyline 55-01 Sunburst, and a rosewood board. The bass for when I can only bring ONE, and it's not a safe environment for BooBoo.

    "Slinky" - 1996 Fender USA Deluxe Jazz 5. Trans-red, rosewood, custom defretted (with rock maple inlays) by Mike Dolan (http://www.dolanguitars.com), and a set of Lindy Fralin Jazz 5s installed by Rolland Brunet.

    "Chunk" - 2009 Lake Placid blue Squier P, with pick-up cover, flatwounds, and an over-wrapped '51-P Lindy Fralin. Close your eyes, and you are there. This...bass...KILLS. Like I always say: Don't buy the decal, buy the bass stuck to the back of it!
    Favorite Genres:
    If it has soul, I like it.

    Previously Owned Gear:
    If it was cheap, deadly heavy, and sounded like crap, I played through it in the 80s.
