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.
On stage I plug my bass to RME Fireface 802 audio interface that is connected to my computer. I use Ableton live software for looping and Overloud TH3 plugin for effects.
