Hi from the Midlands, UK

Recommended Posts

Hey there, I’m not a new member (I joined in 2014) but I haven’t signed in for 6 years! Not sure if I introduced myself back then, so doing so now! 🙂

I’ve been playing bass for almost 40 years, never really aligning myself with any particular genre. I have very eclectic taste and draw on this to create original music born out of improvisation, mostly using solo bass and technology.

Current gear comprises:

Basses: Rickenbacker 4003, Anaconda Crusher CX5, Squier VI (Classic Vibe), GoldTone MicroBass and 3 x franken-basses I’ve built from parts - (a fretted jazz bass, fretless jazz bass and a P bass).

Amplification: Ashdown ABM500 EVOIII with 4x10” (CURRENTLY FOR SALE!), Ampeg BA110.

Tech: MacBook Pro running Ableton Live, Amplitube running various Ampeg amps and FX, Jam Origin Midi Guitar & Midi Bass, Absynth5 and other soft-synths, misc. live looping software, Behringer FCB1010 foot controller, iPad running TouchAble, Zoom B3, Behringer Ultra Vibrato (cheapo but love this pedal!), HOF reverb.

 Looking forward to chatting!

Russ
