Hello

PSD

HI Everyone Billy here, from Ohio. I'm new to the Sweetwater Forums but I've been playing bass about 11 years. I have an Ibenz 5 string and an Ibenz 4 string which I hashed with EMG P&J pickups. It has that hardcore punk road weary look...LOL I use a 1969 Ampeg head with a Hartke 410 transporter. I have an SVT cab but I hate lugging it around. I started playing bass guitar when I picked one up in a studio I was working part time at to help a band out, because their bass player quit them. I never looked back. Its hard to say who my hardcore influences are since I came in playing guitar. Even though he isn't known for his playing I'm a big fan of Gene Simmons of Kiss, but I agree Victor Wooten is a God. I like Billy Sheenen quite well.

Welcome Billy, I too am a midwest bass player but, I live in San Diego now.
I have watched these forums for a couple of years now and have only recently registered so I can join in the conversations.
I have learned a lot from these folks as I'm sure you will too.
