About Me

  • About Ken Smith
    Musical Background
    Manufacturer of Ken Smith Basses but also back part time playing Double Bass in Local Symphony Orchestras (and other Gigs as well including a Smith Bass as needed) using one of the Basses from my personal collection;

    I Retired in 1988 after playing both Electric Bass and Double Bass in & around NYC for 20 years as well as some traveling in my earlier days. I did mostly studio work from 1975 and curtailed most travel. I taught about 450 Students privately on both Electric Bass and Double Bass from about 1974-1986 but retired from that as well. In 1978 I started Ken Smith Basses,Ltd. and continued to play as the Business grew. Now I'm back working the Bow in a few local Symphony Orchestras and a few other Gigs as time allows.
    Perkasie, PA
    Additional Information
    Just ask me if you are curious..
    Your Gear
    Currently I am in the process or changing my bass line-up. I have two Italians in restoration (Gagliano & Cateni) as well as others basses. I will finish the Summer with my French Mangenot bass as my Rubner is in the shop for some set-up tweaks as well. My main Bows: L.Morizot c.1930 stamped E.Sartory A Paris & and a Vigneron model by Emilo Slaviero of Cremona c.1990.

    For Electric work (which is rare for me these days) I have a '91 Burner Custom 4-string that I take out when needed.
