    Gender:
    Male
    Location:
    Pittsburgh PA USA
    Occupation:
    Retired business man, now a full time musician.
    Current Setup:
    A vintage Tele bass, an American Jazz bass, An American Standard Jaguar with a Select P neck, an American Deluxe Dimension V, five different American Precisions, an EBMM Stingray, a Rickenbacker 4003W and a Rickenbacker 4003SW.

    My rigs are an Ampeg SVT 3 Pro through a SVT 212 AV cabinet, or an Ampeg SVT Classic all tube monster which I run through one or two SVT 212 AV cabinets, depending on the venue. I have a Fender Bassman TV 12 combo that I primarily use with the acoustic based acts. I recently ordered a SVT 810E cabinet, although with the two 212 AV cabs, it really is not needed. And lastly, I have an Ampeg BA 115 HP which is currently my rehearsal rig.
    Favorite Genres:
    I love the blues, it makes me smile...
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    I play hand percussion with the "Green Ridge Runners" and another acoustic act called "Feral". I play drums with the "Hellin Back Band", which is currently my busiest project.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Peavey, Schecter, Squier and Jackson basses, a Peavey TNT 160 and a Fender Bassman 400/Bassman 115 rig.
    G.A.S. List:
    I want for nothing.
    Influences and Teachers:
    I studied with a local bass teacher named Matt Booth until he moved to NOLA. I'm currently working my way through Roy Vogt's TMBG DVD course.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    My wife and I are both dog nuts and are involved in a Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier rescue organization called Wheatens In Need (WIN).

    I am also a volunteer with the Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue Team.
