logoUntil very recently, I didn’t know really well how much good cables make a difference I your sound. I always thought “The thicker the better”. Not true.  Tsunami cables made such a difference in my recording and live signal, that I completely replaced all my cables with them in my home studio and my live rig. Contact Keith, and tell him I sent you if you are interested. I was invited to try them out in a little video. Check it out below.

For me,  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 too. 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.

I feel that Bartolini pickups give me a great, smooth sound in my Fender Jazz bass and my Steven Sukop fretted and fretless basses. I’ve been playing them since 1996 with no issues and with a certain sound that I love. The producers I work with love them as well ! They’ve more than paid for themselves and keep giving !

Nothing like a Fender in my opinion. When I need a one tone fits all kind of sound, I reach for my Fender Jazz 5-string.

I love to ride as well. Nothing helps me to clear my mind than a good ride !

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, a slight left turn into a Tubetech LCA 2B, then to my DAW for all my clients/friends all over the world.
