My primary bass was made in 1934 Mirecourt (the label say “Paris”, but the shop was in Mirecourt), France, in the Collin-Mezin Shop. It was purchased by a dealer from a shop in Versailles in 2012 and brought to the US where it was regraduated by Arnold Schnitzer.
I play a Chadwick Folding Bass on the road and at certain gigs around Nashville.
My primary bow was made in 1980 by Jon Vanderhorst. I prefer white hair and I use a small latex grip.
I am currently using Fishman Full-Circle pickups on my basses, along with a variety of electronics and amplifiers.
