This weekend has been tons of fun! I’ve been at the London Bass Guitar Show as Rheingold-Music‘s product manager and as an artist, and what a show it was! We’ve been having a lot of great bass players come over to our booth and check out our products, and I also filmed interviews for Bass Guitar Magazine, and the one and only Antelope Audio. Check out the video of some awesome bass players playing my Rheingold rig and stay tuned for the upcoming interview videos!

Hey guys! You Might’ve already heard about the #JoBroBassGrooveChallenge by Thaddeus Johnson (@tjmusic21) over on Instagram. In one post he asked all the bass players on Instagram to play this original groove and interpret it in their individual way.  It’s not a contest but rather a musical exchange of ideas. So I figured it was about time I recorded my contribution which you can see and hear right here 🙂 Ok guys, here’s my contribution to @tjmusic21’s #bassgroovechallenge! Hope you dig! ? Mad props to you guys for making this such a big thing! Amazing to see so many great players interpret this groove ? Recorded with my @rheingold_music amp and one microphone, no DI!!!

Hey guys, did you know that a while back I recorded the audio demos for some killin’ stomp boxes by the Polish company Taurus Amplification? I tried to make these demos a little different from what you usually get… Have a listen to some of the stuff I came up with for their “Dexter Mk-II” Polyphonic Octaver and “Vechoor” Chorus 🙂 Oh and in case you’re wondering, these are the basses I used: Sample 1: Paul Lairat Stega, Sample 2: Flexx Basses Jacob 4, Sample 3 & 4: Flexx Basses Jacob 4 Fretless, Sample 5 & 6: Paul Lairat Stega, Sample 7: Flexx Basses Peter 4 (Bass and “Rhythm Guitar”) & Paul Lairat Stega (Lead)
