    Somerville, MA
    Current Setup:
    Eminence RN5, my go-to axe.
    1953 Kay in storage for the moment.

    Hartke 7000 head Bi-Amp for big gigs with no PA.
    GK MB200
    Bill Fitz Omni 10.5
    Custom 2x8 cabinet
    And a bunch of weird and DYI amps and cabs, including a backpack with li-ion powered Class-D amp and dual 6.5" car speakers by Aura, which I use to amplify the drop-octave electric viola that I sometimes torture instead of my basses.

    Peavey TKO 115. Mediocre amp that served me well at the time.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Ray Phiri playing with Paul Simon, live in central park '91 (I was 11) inspired me to play bass.
