ENDORSEMENTS

Mono Creators makes the best cases around. Travels well and takes a good beating while protecting my instruments. The only bag that I'd trust if an airline forced to 'check' a bass. 

Cases and Bags

 

Aguilar Amplification has been one of the main ingredients of my sound since 2006. From theater productions and jazz to straight-up NoLa funk, Aguilar delivers everything I want and then some!  Nothing comes close!

Here are my favorites:

 

 

 

Gruv Gear makes great gear for the working musician. The V-Cart Solo helps navigate unpredictable Bay Area terrain. The Fret Wraps are not just for players with flashy technique. Not only do they help control excessive overtones but they help me to get a tight, focused sound whenever I'm going direct and free my hands for quick and sometimes unforgiving page turns in Musical Theater situations. Another example of Gruv Gear seeing and meeting a need."

What I use:

 

 

MXR Bass Innovations is my go-to for strings and pedals. 

Great sounding, true bypass pedals that are absolute money!

Marco TFL Basses I recently acquired this relic from Marco Cortes and it is probably one of the most expressive, responsive basses that I've owned. 34.5' scale, passive electronics and Marco's proprietary pickups in 70's pickup position.
