Epifani bass amplification is worlds above the rest in tonal character, headroom and live sound quality. I’m proud to be a part of the Epifani family. I use the Piccolo 999 1000w amp, and 2 210 cabs or 4×10, or some sort of variation thereof for live shows. The only thing better than the sound is their attention to their artists and customers.
Phil Jones makes great bass amplification. I personally use a “Bass Buddy” for studio EQ and a Double 4 amplifier for small gigs and studio reference. Pay him a visit online.
Stephen Sukop makes, by hand, these great instruments. Both fretted and fretless models. I have known Stephen personally for many years back to when we both attended Berklee. Do yourself a favor and check out his instruments. I feel that they are great. It’s an honor to know this guy.
Ken Smith Basses – stunning instruments, I own one and play it often. Just unbelievable tone, craftsmanship and playability, remarkable. I play a 5 string model. I buy all my high end bass gear through Lou Laurenti at BASSsouthwest.
Harley Davidson – That’s right ! I love mine! I have a 2007 Road King that I love to cruise on in Southern California. If you ride, you get it !
I use GHS strings. For me, they sound great, they last a long time, and feel great. You should check them out !

In my home studio I run my signal into an Avalon U5 into a Phil Jones Bass Buddy, a slight left turn into a Tubetech LCA 2B for all my clients/friends all over the world.
