    I'm a double-bass repair specialist, currently doing tons of setups and repairs for The Violin Shoppe, Sam Ash Music, and Davidson Violins, and growing my luthier practice as quickly as I can. I perform regularly on both upright and electric basses. I can sight-read a big band book or learn and memorize originals by ear, and I can double on guitar as well.
