Rob Anzellotti and I had been planning on doing an interview. When we realized that we would both be in Prague for BASS2016, we made plans to meet up and chat about capos, extensions, and other sorts of bass geekery.
Rob and I are joined by Chris Mathers for a freewheeling talk about bass, living in New York, life as an expat, getting into fabrication and how that led to making bass capos.
Did you ever want to know how many pounds of pressure strings exert on a bass? Are you interested in the nitty-gritty of installing extensions without drilling into the scroll? How about the angle at which a good capo should close? If so, this is the episode for you!
It was a blast hanging out with Rob and Chris. After we got done talking, we wandered down the street for some epically good Czech food and beer. There’s nothing like geeking out on all things bass and following it up with good food and conversation.
