Currently I am I have an Engelhardt ES-1. I use gut strings and an Underwood pickup. I play through an Ampeg B2R (until I
can afford an SVT3 Pro)with an Ampeg 412 cab and an Ampeg 210 cab.
As for me, I am a summer camp director here in Knoxville, TN. I'm 23 and will be starting my internship as a middle school
reading teacher in the Fall. I have played guitar for 9 years (mostly blues and rockabilly). My main guitar influences have
been Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Brian Setzer. I have been playing upright bass since September of last year. Guitar
has definately helped me learn the bass since I'm already familiar with the neck. I'm not currently in a rockabilly band (I
am in a Bluegrass band) but plan to form one in the Fall. In the mean time I play at bluegrass, blues and country jams several
times a week. My influences on bass are Joe Fick of the Dempseys, anyone who has played with Wayne Hancock and of course the
good people over at www.Rockabillybass.com.
