    Gender:
    Male
    Location:
    Sammamish, WA
    Occupation:
    Broadcast television engineer, musician, composer
    Current Setup:
    Fender Precision Bass Lyte - One of those basses that felt perfect from the moment I picked it up. Not a fan of the, now faded, gold hardware or the photo flame finish but it sounds fantastic, weighs 6.4 lbs and plays like a dream.

    SUB SB4 by Sterling - I put on GHS Pressure Wounds, a Guitar Fetish alnico pickup, new tuners and bridge. At 6.6 lbs, it is one of the lightest, most comfortable and punchy basses I have ever owned, regardless of price. I now own three of these and find them to be a great, inexpensive modding platform. I swapped out the MM pickup on one of them for an EMG Geezer Butler P-bass pickup in the Fender sweet spot. I now have one with Pressure Wounds, one with round wounds and one with Flats

    Steinberger L2 - I've had it since the 80s' but it's such a classic I can't even think of selling it.

    TC Electronic RH750 amp

    Trace Elliot ELF

    2 Acoustic BN112 neo cabinets
    Favorite Genres:
    Classic, Modern and Progressive Rock
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Currently singing and playing in two groups in the Seattle area:
    The Davanos - classic rock and originals trio
    The Jethro Tull Experience - a Tull tribute band.

    I previously performed with:
    The Generations
    Tacoma
    Prophet
    Shondra and the Source
    Shake It Up
    Triple Shot
    Jet City Players
    Einstein's Relatives
    Roger Fisher and the Human Tribe
    Killer Rabbit

    Many of these groups can be found on YouTube under the band names or mine - Greg Youtsey.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    I've been playing since 1963 and have owned over 60 basses (Vox, Fender, Steinberger, Ibanez, Gibson,, G&L, Spector, Ampeg, Crucianelli, Epiphone, Rickenbacker, Vantage, Sterling, Peavey, Hamer, NS Design, OLP, Squier, Warwick and Yamaha) and 20 different amps (Silvertone, Vox, Fender, Hartke, Ampeg, Acoustic, Sunn, Trace Elliot, Marshall, AMP, GK, Peavey, TC Electronic and Yamaha). I find it funny that I have owned a LOT of now-classic equipment when it was brand new.
    G.A.S. List:
    I'm pretty y content with my setup now but I'm always on the lookout for another Spector NS2.
    Influences and Teachers:
    Paul McCartney, Chris Squire, Dave Hope and Andy Fraser were some of my influences in the past but there are some amazing young bassists now doing things that blow me away. I'm really inspired by the incredible talents of Henrik Linder of Dirty Loops, Dave McMillan of Big Wreck and Dylan Wilson of Richie Kotzen's trio.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    I also sing, play keys and work in television. I am an Emmy Award winning Composer and Sound Engineer
