“This bass was immediately singing, and I have always enjoyed playing it in a room, alone or in an ensemble. For years I searched for a viable instrument with this clarity and focus, and now I have one because Nick made it.” -Paul Kowert
In 2022 I was interviewed by Matt Hutchinson, host/producer of the podcast “Bluegrass Jamalong”. We discussed bass making and copying Edgar’s bass for Paul.
