Bass Battle

This is a manifesto for the #bassguitar as a complex instrument, that does more than tagging along and keeping the rhythm.

I told you about that bass contest and how I got Mr. P. It’s called “Dracula Bass’ and here is a photo of me trying my best to win! #bassface 😂

Is it possible to have too many guitars? 🤔
No, in fact, in this picture, there's one missing...
I did start playing bass in high school and my first guitar is the one that’s actually missing. Difficult to play, not a great tone, you guys know how "my first intrument" is... I sold that after a while to buy my Ibanez SR305 (down-left) and I consider this to be my first real bass.  Played it a lot with @crizeofficial back in 2001 and loved it, very easy to play, 5 strings, low B ❤️! Then I bought my Washburn T25 (up-right) from my friend @stefan_de_la_onesti 😀, remember bro? ❤️ This was my main bass back in the days while playing with my band DUTEVINO. Loved it also, still playing it these days and planning to make an upgrade one day by changing the pickups.
The next on the list is the Yamaha Trb5p (middle-right), my main bass, THE BEST BASS IN THE WORLD!!! All the music I ever recorded was with this one, all my albums or bands albums, everything!
Thanks @adrian_ciuplea for selling it to me! ❤️
Mr. P, my precision bass, the one that gets all the likes (down-right) the most beautiful bass ever 😀. I have a previous post talking about the story of Mr.P (go check it).
On the middle right is the first bass I ever played in my life, this is @cezar_popescu_ ‘s bass. Me and Cezar used to play in the high school band. Miss those days bro! 🖤
Up-left is my first electric guitar, tunned like a 6 strings bass, bought from my dear friend @absurdcus. This guitar was made for me! Really! Since the day I got it I was so inspired that my album “Electric Play”  become a guitar solo album 😂
Well, there is a story behind all these instruments so nope, not too many! 😍

A few years ago I used to shot on 35mm film for a while. Mostly landscape and portrait but sometimes also my basses 😀
Now I am too lazy and when it comes to photography I use my phone most of the time (99% 😛). But that film vibe is something I’ve always missed, I try most of the time to replicate it in #vsco and that’s a great app for sure. 
But the dynamic range is something no app can really do. That’s in the film, in the resolution, in the analog 😀
Love this photo if you agree!

My bass setup for live shows ❤️
Since day one with @rockabellamusic I never played through an amp and a cab or anything on stage...Always in ears. 
For a while I was using #shurese215 and now I use a pair of #westoneaudio. Love them!
Is this the way to go? For me it is, because I can make my own mix, I can hear my bass loud and clear and also I can control the master volume all the time.
How do you monitor your bass? Let me know in a comment below 😀
P.s. we also have click and backing tracks so I guess this is the only option right?

I won this bass a few years ago in the first edition of “Dracula Bass” festival. That was a big surprise for me because there were so many great bass players who really played fast or slapped or whatever...they were good! 
I didn’t know how to slap, I still don’t know and I was scared to improvise but I wanted to challenge myself and compete, mostly because of my fear of stage, so I just played two of my songs, one of them was “Be my girlfriend”, can’t remember the other one. No sure how many points I got or what criteria they had but I won that contest 🤔The lesson I learned Is that being yourself even if that feels like you are a little bit different is most of the time a good idea! ❤️

Feeling nostalgic 😀
I would love to compose and record more music this year! Looking at this photo I remember the days when I was recording my first ep “PLAY” and what a lovely experience that was. I would never forget those late nights trying sooo many mix versions because I had to get it right the way I heard it in my mind. All that with just a few plugins. It was a challenge for sure but it totally worth it. Need that feeling again, the excitement of the process of making music. 
It’s a bliss ❤️

Original date 25 August 2018 😀
Two things have changed, the MacBook pro 💻 is now an iMac 🖥 and the Headphones 🎧 I use these days are @audiotechnicausa ath m50x. The passion for music and photography remains the same! Never try to change that! ❤️

Last Saturday, opening for #themonojacks, was also my first concert using the recently build #bbpedalboard! 🎉 
Loved it! Worked great! No issues so far! 
Looks like I did a pretty good job 👏 .
P.s. check that beauty right next to my Yamaha. That’s bassbro @absurdcus ‘s bass, a gorgeous #warwickthumb I played a bit that day.😍
