I’m playing a 5 strings Nick Lloyd Bass with removable neck, it’s made out of Spruce and walnut kind of wood and it’s a fantastic instrument. It has a great sound definition, very focused and with lots of sustain. I use Thomastic medium strings which are great for pizzicato. To amplify my bass on stage I use full circle Fishman pickup and an Audio Technika ATM 350 mic; together they give a big, wide, powerful and acoustic sound. For effects I use Boss GT-10b, it has a very wide variety of effects so I can make all kinds of crazy sounds, it’s very comfortable to use and the quality is great. For looping I use BOSS RC-300.
