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.

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 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 into a Phil Jones Bass Buddy, a slight left turn into a Tubetech LCA 2B for all my clients/friends all over the world.
