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; http://www.kensmithbasses.com/doublebasses

    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.
    Location
    Perkasie, PA
    Additional Information
    Just ask me if you are curious..
    Your Gear
    My Orchestra Double Bass is a full cut Louis Lowendall Strad model made in Berlin 1910, Germany. My other Bass for rehearsals and amplified gigs like shows, jazz gigs and Pops concerts with Orchestra is an Italian style Bass by Josef Kreutzer from Brno, 1953. Both Basses with custom made Ebony C-Extensions. For Bows I have an early Roger Lotte, a Vigneron model by Slaviero of Cremona, a bow by A.Proietti (Cesena, Italy) and a Sartory model by Peter Eibert.

    For Electric work (which is rare for me these days) I have a '99 Burner Deluxe 4-string that I take out when needed.
