My Endorsement Of Gallien-Krueger Amps & Cabs: A Bass Geek Mega-Blog

Saturday, July 23rd, 2011

For those of you not following me on social media (and what’s the matter with you, by the way), you may not have heard the news: I am now a proud user and endorser of Gallien-Krueger bass amplification products. Specifically, my new full-stage rig is a GK Fusion 550, a GK 2001RB (power amp only), and two GK Neo 4×12 cabinets. I actually used GK rigs on the recent Dethklok and Steve Vai gigs, and had a great time playing them. They sound freakin’ awesome. I’m extremely honored and proud to be a new member of the Gallien-Krueger family.

Some of you are new here, or really don’t give a rip about what gear I use and why. Feel free to skip this post, in that event. But for those who’ve followed me for a while, as well as the more bass-geek-minded among you, this may come as a bit of a shock. After all, I have been playing SWR amps and cabs for 20 years, and I only worked for the company for 8 of those years. Rest assured, I didn’t come to this decision lightly or easily. I staged one hell of a soundtest before choosing as I did.

So I thought I’d get the whole story down in one huge bass geek mega-blog, which you can read by clicking here.

It’s not for the faint of heart, or anyone not fascinated with the technical details of bass tone. But if what I just wrote tickled your geek bone, then this blog’s for you.

Either way, I look forward to many happy gigs with my new GK rig, and I want to thank everyone there (especially Brian Clark) for making it possible.

New BellerBytes: Dethklok/Vai Shows This Weekend, Aristocrats/Kira/Keneally-Beller In The Fall

Tuesday, July 5th, 2011

Well, that subject line pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?

I’m in Los Angeles until July 16, at which point I go to Korea and Japan with The Aristocrats. Before I leave I’ll do a festival show with Dethklok, and a benefit show with Steve Vai at which there will be so many special guests it’ll seem like a muzo telethon.

This fall, I’m hitting North Carolina with Kira, then touring the east coast and Canada and Chicago with The Aristocrats, and then there may even be some Keneally-Beller touring on the west coast.

You know where the details are. Get to the clickin’ for the latest BellerBytes. There’s even some more super-special info you can only get by reading the whole thing. Because I’m like that.
