Hi there, I'm new to this forums. Im a dutch guy who has been playing bass guitar for nearly 3 years now. My influence is JRock and similar styles, since this is the reason I started playing bass. As my name implies, I absolutely love Reika, the bassist of the Japanese band D=OUT. His melodic lines are awesome. I play the bass in a metal band and Im looking for a proper bass. My gear is a dull-sounding Ibanez and a Roland Minicube RX Bass. So far so good.
