own a nice Italian double bass, made in 1923 by Guiseppe
Pedrazini. I also own a carbon fiber bass by Cosi. This bass sounds slightly more defined and it has become my main bass!
My 2 bassguitars were manufactured by Ferdinand Rikkers.
I use d'Addario on my guitar and Thomastik-Infeld on my double bass. The high C is a Pirastro jazzer.
I use a Hevos as my bass amplification
The Web Site
this web site you can get a good impression of the groups
I play in and of me as a bass player. Styles may differ, but
they're closely related to jazz. Also on this website you'll find bass lessons and links for bass players.
