This is my bass. It is an upright from King Doublebass. It's a Slap King model and I use Rotosounds RS4000 strings. I run it through a K&K pickup and into a Kustom amp (that is, until I get the cash to buy a better one) but it does the job.
I play mostly rockabilly/country type stuff. I really like the old vintage sounds that you hear a lot on the older records from people like Elvis, Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson, Johnny Burnette Trio...but I like a lot of the newer stuff....bands/people you might recognize would be Stray Cats, Reverend Horton Heat, BR5-49, Dwight Yoakam. So yeah, that's me. :)
