1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    G.A.S. List:
    Currently on Susan Lipkins' waiting list.

    Interested in Lipkins, Reid Hudson Jean Grunberger, Fuchs bows; would love a great Vigneron or Sartory. I wish Benoit Rolland or Stephane Thomachot made bass bows.

    There are many beautiful Contrabasses I have drooled over - Rocca, Busan, Bergonzi, Maggini.
    Thinking about some day commissioning Daniel Hachez to make a bass.

    As for bass guitar,
    I'd love a Carl Thompson fretless, Anthony Jackson or Matt Garrison's Fodera or a Six string fretted Ken Smith.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Teachers - Stephen Lester (Chicago Symphony), Laura Snyder (Milwaukee Symphony)

    Inspiration from
    Hal Robinson, Ed Barker, Klaus Stoll, Daniel Marillier, Jurik Dybal, Paul Ellison, Tim Cobb, Francois Rabbath,

    Jaco, Matt Garrison, Janek Gwizdala

    David McGill (Chicago Symphony principal bassoon)
    Janos Starker's phenomenal cello technique.
