Dave's NAMM Pics

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Dave Grossman, Jan 30, 2002.


  1. I thought I'd start a new thread for my NAMM pics. I have hundreds of pics from the past few weeks. Only about 140 of them are from the show. The rest are of The Trey Gunn Band, and other Warr showcase performers in Anahem and in San Francisco the following week. I'll try to post a few pics a day.

    To start off, here are some of my favorite pics:

    My friend and builder of my basses, the one and only Pete Hanewinckel!

    who also happens to be an acquaintence of Stephen Sukop ( playing one of his killer basses which I got to jam on for like 15 minutes ... more pics of that one later! ):

    [​IMG]

    Pete and Stephen also seemed to be acquaintences one of the most unique bass luthiers, Ken Bebensee!

    [​IMG]

    Last but not least, there is Ken Lawrence playing a really killer bass which he let me try out just prior to me taking the picture. Really nice guy ( as were Pete, Stephen and Ken ).

    Enjoy,

  2. Here's a bonus pic of Ken Lawrence with ... well ... who else could it be?

  3. I got my pictures back a little while ago. Very bass shots turned out because the camera I used for shooting just basses got all screwed up (damn desposeables!) The rest I have are just famous people and playboy models, when I get my hands on a cord for my scanner I'm sure some of you guys might get a kick out of em.

    I just noticed that my pic with Bill Dickens didn't come out either :mad:

    I like the Hanewinckel! (Bass, not the Guy)
     
  11. Thanks for taking the time to post the pics!

    Did you play any of the Babensee basses? His designs are very unique. He does great things with wood. Any comment on how they play/sound?

    Thanks!

    Well, based on that design, Tommy Boy better look out!:eek: :D
     
  13. You're welcome.

    No, I didn't get a chance to try out Ken's basses. I could have but there were other people who were also interested and I had just jammed on a Sukop for a while so I didn't bother. Perhaps next year ...

    I did hear someone play one of his fretless basses and it sounded really good. It's hard to really judge it in that loud environment though.

    A Sukop. Nice! That's the one I played for a while. Played and sounded great.
