For whatever Double Bass related reason you’ve arrived at my website, welcome! I’m glad you’re here and I encourage you to take a little time to check out all of my pages.

Located in the redwoods of Felton, California, my shop is 10 minutes north of Santa Cruz and 1.5 hours south of San Francisco.

After playing the double and electric bass for 20 + years, I began studying luthiery of the violin family of instruments under Dennis English and David Morse while continuing to play professionally.  I believe the experience of being a player for so long provides me with a huge advantage as a bass luthier; I know the discomfort and tone issues that inevitably come from playing a poorly set up bass.

My goal is to work with you to find the right balance between your playing requirements and what will sound the best on any given instrument. I look forward to exploring the possibilities of your instrument together!
