Music is my life and livelihood; it's what the gifts and
opportunities given to me along the way have added up to. It's what I
feel I'm called to do.
I have been blessed to follow the
path of music into many areas and multiple instruments, to play for so
many in so many different bands, work with hundreds of students and even
demo gear at NAMM, and now to be offering my
high performance hand made basses.
The goal with a Muckelroy bass is a
simple one; craft a tool of inspiration that will be stable, roadworthy,
and full of tone. Having owned and modified high-end basses such as
Bee, Alembic, Carvin, Zon and American Fenders - and worked on many more - I bring an understanding of various
preamps & controls, pickups and boutique construction techniques to each build and
can tailor my designs to your needs.
For the tall players out there, I'm
6'3" and though happy to build for people of all sizes I understand
the proportions of a bass that will be comfortable standing or seated on
a taller body.
I do some side work helping out at Birdsong
Guitars and SD Curlee
USA; please feel free to contact them as references should you be
considering one of my basses. (512) 392-4400.
Please contact me anytime about a
custom build, what is already in process that may be available, or
any of my musical services.
