There are currently five self produced albums available including the askew trilogy.  Recording continues regularly.  I use the word album to refer to a collection of songs in a particular order.  Some are in hard copy CD, some as digital downloads.

Very special thanks to the fantastic Gallien Krueger Company.

With Bob and his son Forest Gallien at the NAMM show 2016. Their bass amps work great! So reliable!

I love using their small combo amps with electric or upright basses. So clean and powerful for the size. Gallien-Kruegar Inc. (amplification)

Music can flow when the gear is clean and reliable. Always nice to amplify my basses with those little GK combo amps, light weight, big sound, so excellent to use as a monitor.

Great support over the years from BSX. It’s been very special developing such an unusual instrument.  The sound is great and the sustain is amazing.  Eliminates many feedback problems that come with upright basses playing at louder volumes.
