    Current Setup:
    I use a Czech, (I think) upright bass, about 60 years old. I use a Realist pick-up, which I plug into a SWR "Strawberry Blond Amp". I liked the Strawberry Blond more when I was using the underwood pick up. The entire rig is a little too thuddy now. I also use a cheap german bow, as I just had my cheap french bow stolen. Grr...
    Favorite Genres:
    Jazz, Classical
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Currently working with my own trio, and free-lancing quite a bit. Almost all jazz, but am working hard on classical. (Sawing away at the strings.)
    Previously Owned Gear:
    I once owned a Kay blonde upright bass, with stains on the front that spelled out the name Johnny. (Some cat stuck gaudy letters to it.) I wish I never sold it.
    G.A.S. List:
    A better upright bass, but this one works great, and after all these years, we've learned to play well together.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Neal Creque, Ace Carter, Lawrence (Jacktown) Jackson..(my jazz fathers.) Bassists:Ron Carter, Buster Williams, Eddie Gomez, Ray Brown.. and too many others to name. Other musicians: Bill Evans, Miles, (lots of Miles) Trane, and again, too many others.

    Teaching Credentials:
