So I've been a professional musician for 20 years now!! Wow that is right, time flies lol
I am not supper picky about gear. If is working for me I am happy. I also don’t like using too much stuff specially live.
Here is what I use live and on studio.
For live gigs:
Live I play bass guitar and sing usually.
- My Basses
Live I mostly use my 4 strings Fender Precision Bass Rosewood Fingerboard.
Again, super simple but super versatile. I can play rnr and make it sound supper strong but at the same time I can play something warmer and groovy. Love that bass.
I also own a 5 strings Music Man Sting Ray that I usually use on acoustic shows. I love that bass, but is a vintage one so I try to keep in my house :)
Recently I got a Fender Player Plus active Jazz Bass maple fingerboard. I can't wait to take this ababy out to try!
I use the Fender Rumble 200 1x15" 200-watt Bass Combo Amp in smaller gigs.
I like it because I think is a very versatile amp, plus is very light and can do the damage.
It has 3 button voicing palette that helps to sculpts the sound even further.
Bright, contour and vintage.
I also love that it has a XLR line output so is easy to deal with sound checks etc.
Lattely for bigger shows I am using the 2 4x10 bass speaker cabinet 500 watts by Tech 21
plus the VT Bass 1000 head also by Tech 21.
- Bass pedal
I’ve been using for a long time now the Tech 21 Bass Fly Rig Bass Multi-effects Pedal.
I like it because it has everything I use and a bit more.
A complete SansAmp, boost, chorus, compression, octafilter, tuner, and an XLR output connects directly to a PA system or your recording device.
Plus is small, witch is great! The pedal was inspired and built right after my husband developed with the company his RK Fly Rig witch I also use when I am recording guitars etc.
I love the pedal and if you are like me and don’t like to carrie too much stuff I recommend it!
Live I usually use a Samson Q7 usually or a Samson Q8X.
I have a small home studio that I write and record my music.
Nothing special but it does the job!
I use Pro Tools form my music.
Also, I record trough a Focusritte Scarlett 2i2 audio Interface.
I run my vocals trough a TF pro p2 - dual channel mic preamp, di, compressor and eq.
The mic I use is a AKG Perception 420
Guitars and basses I run trough the Tech21 RK Fly Rig.
Hope I see you guys around so we can chat more about gear :)
