Hey brothers and sisters,
My name is Craig....I am 50years old from the Long Island area in New York. I am the bass player for the New York based Dead Tribute band HalfStep. I have been playing bass for over 30years. Phil Lesh has been a huge inspiration and influence to me. I have studied jazz improvisation at City College in Manhattan. This looks like a very cool site and know it will help in my quest for the
"PHIL"tone that I am searching for.

I play a Carvin SB5000 and my rig is an Eden WT550 with 212 and 210 cabs.
I am working towards a Modulus Q6 and upgrading the gear as well. All about the journey aye?

Welcome aboard!! Those Q6s are super sweet - one of the guys I play with just got one. This is a great forum and it sounds like you have a lot to add.
