    Location:
    Ilkley ,W. Yorks, England
    Current Setup:
    Customised Ibanez ATK300 - Bassculture.de replacement humbucker + Seymour Duncan Jazz Hot Stack in neck, preamp bypassed (Japanese)

    Fender Bullet Deluxe - with Badass II bridge (U.S.A.)

    Crafter GAB21S/N Acoustic Bass (Made in some godforsaken place in Indochina, most likely in some awful sweatshop)

    Laney B1 - At the moment it's dead, and I'm not sure it's fixable, but I found a place that makes the Class T parts for the poweramp so it might be revivable. Be weary if you gonna get one because spares might not be available, if they are then I'd definitely recommend it, best head I've ever played.

    Berg' NV215 - Also dead at the moment cos of a nasty pre/power setup incident...

    Laney R4H & Laney R410 - backup rig...

    Trace Elliot 1518 - wanna get rid of, needs a re-cone

    For a bit of guitar...

    Danelectro U2 Pro

    Danelectro Daddy-O overdrive

    Ibanez Tubescreamer (DS9) - don't like it for bass anymore

    Roberts Delay pedal - Really nice but cheap and very solid analogue pedal, looks like a kitchen unit which is cool - currently being indefinitely borrowed by one of my band's guitarists it would seem.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Sounds of Swami, Foxes Faux, The Classical Definition of Madness, Surfing the Cesspool
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Crap Rockstar by Hohner Jazz copy, would be nice to have it back cos it was my first bass

    Various crappy practise amps
    G.A.S. List:
    Another Japanese or an American Ibanez ATK300

    East pre-amp for my ATK

    A Double Bass of pretty much any persuasion at the moment

    And either:

    1 - Thunderfunk-whatevers-most-powerful-at-the-time-I-have-some money-for-one

    2 - Traynor Dynabass 800

    3 - Kustom Groove 1200

    4 - My sodding Laney B1 to work again
    Influences and Teachers:
    Flea, Matt Freeman, Klaus Flouride, Mike Dirnt, Joe Lally, Todd Kowalski, Lots of Reggea and Dub bassists that I know the name of none of, Tom & Jerry Jazz from when I was dead young.
