    Current Setup:
    Basses:
    --the "Surfinbacker": a '70s Electra Ric 4001 copy, refinished surf green & converted to 5-string.
    --Lindert Locomotive VI-T baritone/BassVI
    Rig:
    GK MB500, Genz Neox 212T, H&K Blues Master, Sonic Research Turbo Tuner, DOD FX25, BJFE Blueberry, Fuchs Plush Valve Job (modded for bass), Robot Factory custom dual-LFO tremolo, EXAR Moby Dick chorus, [sfx] Thumpinator, Focusrite ISA One, and a variety of compressors.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    I'm really more of a researcher and aspiring engineer that happens to love bass, rather than a bassist per se. From 1985 to about 1995 I played synthesizer and home-made instruments, either solo or in obscure noise bands. From 1995 to about 2006 I devoted myself to Afro-Cuban style percussion, such as bongos and congas. As a percussionist I performed with East Bay Ray (ex Dead Kennedys), Bill Spooner (ex The Tubes), and Ward Abronski (Polkacide, ex Flipper) among others. That was until school and home life took over.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    I've bought and sold an embarrassingly large amount of gear over the years. Particularly preamps, compressors (of course), and pedals of all kinds.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Cachao Lopez, Robbie Shakespeare, Geezer Butler, Lucky Scott, James Jamerson, Pino Palladino, Paul Jackson, Bobby Valentin, Ron Carter, Bobby Rodriguez, Bosco Mann, Bootsy!
