- Previously Owned Gear:
First Amp: Wollensak Reel to Reel deck as a tube amp. Dad built me a very nice custom 8" wizzy cab. I was probably 8yrs old.
First Bass: Dad's 60's Yamaha short scale semi-hollow body bass one of his student's brought back from a trip to Japan, which he still has and I'm still trying to talk him out of (see avatar)
Next was an 60's Gibson EB-3 with about three inches of air between the strings and frets (okay not literally, but it was bad). My hands got strong quick playing that. I broke the set neck off tripping over it in my messy bedroom at some point and when I glued it back on, the action was much better. Threw some active EMG's and a Bad Ass bridge on it and it was stellar (if a bit sacreligous and misguided). It sounded fantastic through my blackface Fender Bassman ('62?) and a JBL E130 15 " in a cab my dad and I built.
Next was a Yamaha fretless (diy pry and putty), followed by a 70's P bass. Then at some point an early 80s Ric 4003, and a few forgetable others which didn't stay with me long. I built numerous cabinets around JBL, EV and Altec 15's and owned a variety of amps (David Eden, GK, Trace Elliott, SWR, Ampeg, Peavy, Sun, Carvin, Accoustic, Fender, Polytone, Silvertone, Inter-M, Crown, QSC, Stewart, DIY tube and solid state, etc).
I also used to play drums quite a bit and had several fantastic old vintage kits, including 60's Rodgers, 64 Ludwig Club Date, and my favorite- a beautiful '66 Slingerland kit that I got nearly free and restored to it's former glory. I packed the lugs with cotton and used it in the studio for several years.
Other: Wurlitzer and Rhodes keys, A few vintage synths I found in garage sales and thrift shops for dirt cheap, and a couple of other guitars.
- G.A.S. List:
A good double bass again
Fdeck's HPF for the double
another small/light/powerful head- GK perhaps.
a 5 string fretless - a Rob Allen would be nice
A nordy or lull pj5
Non bass G.A.S:
keys- including a b3 with leslie, a honer clav, another rhodes and another whirlie electric (shouldn't ever have sold them), maybe just a nord electro and save all the extra space.
I'd love to score an old fender princeton at a garage sale (I once landed a nearly mint 64 Twin Reverb for FREE along with a bunch of PA gear a lady just wanted out of her basement)
drums, v-drums for the sake of the neighbors,
- Influences and Teachers:
Jamerson, Jaco, Rocco, Geddy, Victor, Markus, Stanley, Jack Bruce, Steve Harris, JPJ, Mark King...
First electric and double bass lessons were from my dad, who is a retired middle school band teacher, jazz pianist/ bassist, and the coolest guy I know. Took lessons for about 15 years on Cello. Taught myself the rest.
- Hobbies and Interests:
- all manner of DIY- I'm cheap and gots skilz
