- Previously Owned Gear:
I don't sell my gear anymore, as I always wish I hadn't. My brother has a National violin-shaped bass which I am trying to find information about. It's a HUGE bass, with I believe a 36" scale and piezoelectric pickup and sounds great. I recorded with it once when he was feeling generous and I'm dying to know more about it.
However, what I have let go consists of the following:
Yamaha B100 II passed down to my son.
Kasino 480 amplifier (8x10 combo!)
Peavy 15" combo amp (I don't have any photos of it so don't remember)
I sold my Hondo bass after I acquired my Rickenbacker, and then went and bought it back. Other than that and a few odds and ends like pedals, I still have all of the equipment I've ever had.
- G.A.S. List:
- 1980's-era Spector ns4, another Rickenbacker 4001 (or even the 4080!!!), Music Man bass, and moar Squier J-basses (I have a white '60's model I'm interested in).
- Influences and Teachers:
- Paul McCartney, Geddy Lee, Chris Squire, Frank Black/Black Francis, Paul D'Amato, Justin Chancellor, Dick Valentine, Freddie Mercury, Brian May. No those people are not all bassists, and I'm not always a bassist either.
- Hobbies and Interests:
- Martial Arts, Running (to keep my girlish figure), Science Fiction
