Equipment

My main upright-bass is a ¾ German flatback made in the 1920´s, -luthier unknown. I am the third owner of this instrument. I use a DPA 4099 microphone and The Realist Acoustic Transducer and a french bow.

A fretless acoustic bass made by Chris Larkin, – fantastic instrument which has become one of my main instruments.  Take a look at www.chrislarkinguitars.com

A Yamaha SlB200 silent electric upright. I use this bass a lot and always when travelling. Bringing a Double Bass in a flight case for check in at airports is not very popular so this bass has really made my life easier, – it´s a great instrument, easy to play, sounds good both for pizz and arco. I highly recommend this instrument.

Amps:
Lundgaard amp –  it´s a 550w two channel amp with a 10“speaker.
Check on www.lundgaardamps.com and you can see it on the front page, – a great amp with a warm acoustic sound and it´s easy to carry, just 8 kgs
