Fodera makes one of the finest basses ever. The first time I visited their shop, they asked me to play a bass just to get an idea of "my voice". Next they asked me what kind of "tone" I was looking for. Then they helped me to pick the exact wood and electronics for my bass. You can visit them at www.fodera.com for more info.
La Bella has been making strings even before electric bass was invented .... The bass strings are amazing, good mix of fat, smooth, punchy, and last long. Check out www.labella.com
The best amp I've ever used: punchy and clean, it doesn't change the tone of my basses like other amps do. Tone Hammer 500 and 1 or 2 SL112s for local gigs, Tone Hammer DI Box at my church, DB751 and DB810 for bigger festivals in U.S and oversea. Check out www.aguilaramp.com
