Trickfish is honored to welcome veteran studio bassist, producer and composer Tim Landers to its growing list of endorsers. Tim hails originally from the Boston area where he attended Berklee College of Music and studied privately with renowned bassists Neil Stubenhaus and Whit Brown. After two semesters and a brief tour with Al Kooper, Tim moved to New York City where he spent the next six years playing and recording with Al DiMeola, Billy Cobham, Mike Stern, Gil Evans, Michael Brecker, Tiger Okoshi, Bill Frisell, Nick Pike, Sam Morison, Horace Arnold and many others.
In the mid-1980’s Tim headed to the west coast where he soon established himself as one of LA’s top session bassists recording with Tori Amos, Vince Neil, Tracy Chapman, Lee Ritenour, Dave Grusin, Vinnie Colaiuta, Tom Scott, The Crusaders, Al Stewart, Gladys Knight, Bill Medley, Graham Nash, Stan Ridgeway, Vital Information, Brian Hughes, Marc Jordan, Beyonce, John Tesh, Taylor Hawkins, Loreena McKennitt, and many, many more. Tim is also a Grammy and Dove Award nominated record producer and song-writer and was recently a member of the short lived but highly acclaimed Crimson Jazz Trio – just before drummer Ian Wallace’s untimely death in 2007.
“Tim posted on Facebook that he was on a quest for tone and looking for a new amplifier. He queried the readers for ideas and the floodgates opened. I sent Tim a PM and told of him of the company and the people behind it and his interest was piqued enough to come over and listen. We had a blast. It was encouraging that he seemed genuinely impressed especially after listening to what seemed like every amp on the planet.” States Trickfish founder Richard Ruse. “Tim came by a second time and gave the rig another workout and we sealed the deal. All of us are honored and humbled by his commitment to helping us grow the brand awareness with his formidable skills.”
After having a rig to work with Tim responded via text: “I finally had time today to set up the new rig and I’m just getting to know it. It really sounds amazing. It’s so crystal clear and punchy. It’s the best sounding amplifier I’ve ever played through and that’s no BS. It reminds me of being in a control room and hearing your bass through the Neve and some ATC300’s. I’m stoked – it’s great to have an amp that sounds like yourself – only a lot louder! I hope everyone gets a chance to really play through one of the rigs – it’s addicting. The amp is a game changer.” You can easily check in on Tim anytime by visiting his Facebook page or at his own website: timlanders.com
