Basses

Fender Highway One™ Jazz Bass

(made in the U.S.A. in December 2005)
  • Crimson Red Transparent
  • Leo Quan BadAss Bass Bridge II (slotted)
  • Fender Custom Shop ’60s Pickups
  • Dunlop Straplok® Dual Design
  • Mono GS1 The Betty Strap
  • tuned EADG

This is my main bass and was my only bass for many years. I bought it new in 2006 and upgraded the pickups and the bridge soon after. I played hundreds of concerts with it and it is currently my main JazzyBIT bass.

Fender ’62 RI Precision Bass

(made in Japan in 1997)
  • Ocean Turquoise Metallic
  • tuned EADG

My new Precision Bass which I use mainly with Amalia Gaiță and Paperjam.

Fender PB62-VSP Precision Bass*

(made in Japan in 2013)
  • 3-Tone Sunburst
  • Gotoh GB640 RES-O-LITE machine heads
  • Dunlop Straplok® Dual Design
  • Mono GS1 The Betty Strap
  • tuned EADG

I bought this straight from Japan in 2015. It’s the flagship ’62 reissue from Fender Japan and I’m loving its simplicity.

Warwick Corvette Standard 4

(made in Germany in August 1996)
  • Honey Violin
  • Dunlop Straplok® Flush Mount
  • Comfort Strapp™
  • tuned BEAD or BbEbAbDb

I got this bass from eBay in 2012 because I needed a more aggressive sounding bass for Sunset in the 12th House. Also I did not want to get a 5 string, so I strung it BEAD or BbEbAbDb. It has an ash body and a wenge neck and fingerboard.

Synth bass

With Alexandrina I play synth bass on a few songs. I only use one sound, which is a simple sub bass.

Amplifiers

Markbass Mini CMD 121P

(made in Italy in February 2011)
  • 1×12”, 500 W solid state bass guitar combo amplifier

Got this very light and good sounding bass combo in 2011 and played it a lot since then. Very portable!

Pedals

The Sadowsky Outboard Bass Preamp/DI Pedal is usually my DI out.
Loving the pedals, but the musical context must allow their use.
