    Heath, Texas
    Slave to debt (but paying it off!)
    Current Setup:
    Fender Aerodyne, 2007, Dimarzio Model J bridge pup, Hipshot D-tuner. NOTHING negative about this bass!
    Yamaha RBX250F fretless, Rotosound 88's, black nylon tapewound. Decent URB imitation.
    Sonic Research tuner
    Genz Benz Contour 500 - 210. Should have bought one sooner.
    Favorite Genres:
    Worship, slow jazz, whatever catches my ear
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Guest bass player whenever a church needs a fill-in
    'Elam', the band - David Elam, friends and FAMILY!
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Genzler BA12-3 - This is a fabulous cab! Sold it to reduce debt.
    Kustom KXB500 - This is a fabulous amp! Sold it because I went to a combo amp (and because I sold my Genzler cab).
    Xsonics 212 - just not for me.
    Epifani UL2-112 - never could like the sound
    GK MB200 - burned up!
    Eden WT-405 - This is a really good amp, but heavy.

    Xaviere P bass (from guitarfetish.com) Very nice bass, kinda wish I still had it. Great platform for pickup experiments!
    Fender Squier Pro Tone, 1996 (This is a fun bass to play! Great quality and feel. I would buy one again!)
    Lakland 55-01 w/ Nordstrand 3B pre and Delano SBC quad-coil pups. A serious bass! Again, a victim of debt reduction.
    Lakland 55-01 w/ Aguilar DCBs and Bart NTMB pre - This bass had some sound!
    MIJ Jazz, 1999. This bass got me started. - My son's Jazz. He still has it.

    Genz Benz NX2 212T - Wow, what a cab, but way too much cab for what I do!
    Eden Metro (too heavy to miss)
    SWR Workingman's 12 - Sounded OK until I bought an Eden.
    Peavey Max 158 (Is this gear?)
    G.A.S. List:
    More practice time!
    Influences and Teachers:
    Steve Morgan (my bass teacher), Jon Thatcher (Delirious?)
    Hobbies and Interests:
    Cycling (road and MTB), grandkids!
    I really don't exist
    Teaching Credentials:
    I'm teaching my daughter-in-law. Does that count?
    I'm older than I've ever been.

    Played guitar since high school. Started playing bass when I was 60 (not THAT long ago!). Wish I had 'discovered' the bass about 45 years ago!


    It's later than it's ever been.
