I had the opportunity to demo several basses made by Anthony Valenti. This guy is not only a great up and coming bass maker but, a kind and excellent host. I'm aware that he is known on this site. His basses are excellent players and sound great. Being a player himself, gives him the insight as to what determines a great instrument. I was impressed by the workmanship of his instruments. I just had to comment on his instruments. I plan on working with Anthony on an instrument. I suggest you guys do the same.
