    Gender:
    Male
    Location:
    US
    Occupation:
    Software Developer/Musician/Gourmet Chef
    Current Setup:
    Basses
    ------------
    Fender American Jazz Professional 2 (4 string)
    '62 Fender American Precision Reissue (2002) - (huge JJ fan!)
    EBMM Stingray Classic 4 (2011, rare '56 blue)
    Rickenbacker 4003 (mid-90s, Jetglow)
    '62 Hofner (bought used mid-90s) - gigged with it quite a bit (huge PM fan!)
    Upton Acoustic Upright (2009) - I love playing this thing!

    Guitars
    ------------
    Fender American Stratocaster ('90s)
    Martin Acoustic

    Misc. Stringed instruments
    ------------
    I also have two banjos (yes, I play banjo) :)

    Strings
    -----------
    Rounds:
    Currently using: Rotosound SM66 Swing Bass 66
    Phased out: DR Sunbeams (used for years)

    Flats:
    TI Jazz Flats (musically unique - love them on my '62 P)
    Pyramid Gold (warmest flats they make with a unique G string)

    Amps/Preamps
    -----------
    Fender Rumble 500 - easy to carry, sounds good enough
    Fender Bassman 1x12 (for rehearsals)
    For recording, I go through a Universal Audio LA-610 Mk II and then direct to an audio interface.

    Effects
    -----------
    I currently use Electro-Harmonix Overlord for my overdrive. Amazing sound! And it has a blend knob! (i.e. the knob that most bassists need in their effects pedals!) :)

    I rarely use effects in general, just different types of preamps and overdrives.

    Recording
    -----------
    DAWs: Ableton Live 11, Studio One 4
    Audio interface: Focusrite Scarlett 18i20
    Preamps: Universal Audio LA-610 Mk II

    Misc.
    -----------
    Headstock vibration-based tuner: my new favorite is the Snark ST-8 Super Tight Clip On. I've tried many, and nothing beats this one yet.

    Straps: D'Addario leather strap for $16. I don't like strap locks or big and bulky straps. This is all I need.
    String Dampener (great for slapping and tapping)
