Equipments

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 my main instrument with The Guitar Islancio Trio.                                                                      Take a look at www.chrislarkinguitars.com

A Yamaha SVB200, – I often use this bass when travelling. Bringing a Double Bass in a flight case for checking in at airport is not very popular so this bass has really made my life easier, it sounds good and that´s enough for me.
