Steve Rodby Discovers Shuttle
Add Grammy winning bassist Steve Rodby to the ever expanding ranks of world class bassists who have been smitten by the Genz Benz Shuttle amp.
In addition to being the bassist in the Pat Metheny Group for the past 30 years, Steve Rodby has conducted orchestras, recorded with many other artists in both jazz and pop and otherwise performed his way to 13 Grammys. But it wasn't until recently that Steve discovered the Shuttle. What does he think? We'll let him tell it.
"I've had several gigs, U.S. and overseas, since the Shuttle 6.0 arrived. Different venue with different speaker cabinets every night, playing both electric and acoustic bass. I have to say that the Shuttle 6 is a real winner for me with my music, my applications. It sounds fantastic. For these Overseas dates I'm playing a hybrid travel bass and something about the Shuttle 6 just adds that extra warmth and punch to the sound, making it much more lively in sound and feel. The Shuttles will be a permanent part of my "new rig" ... the rig that deals with the realities of live playing and touring in these times.
