On Tour with Judith Hill
At the end of September in the early 1980s, a young man named W. Timothy Bailey, Jr. was born into a musical family. The Kansan fell in love with the art around age 3, beating pots and pans, listening to jazz and gospel. By age 11 he was writing lyrics, and by 13, he was crafting tracks when not practicing violin or viola. Timothy studied at the Youth Performing Arts School in Louisville, KY as a sophomore and junior in High school, and graduated from Sumner Academy of Arts and Science in Kansas in 2002. Prior to moving to Los Angeles in 2004, Timothy majored in music technology at the Kansas City Kansas Community College where he also sharpened his jazz chops.
During ths time Timothy also became a first call bassist on the KC gospel scene, accompanying legends like Richard Smallwood, Kim Burrell, and Dr. Bobby Jones among others.

While in LA, he's been blessed to accompany artists like Denice Williams, Chante Moore, Kenny Latimore, Natalie Cole, Ahmir "?uestlove" Thompson, Natasha Beddingfield, Too $hort, Brian Kennedy, Rachelle Ferrell, and many more, playing legendary venues like the Key Club, the House Of Blues, the Hollywood Bowl and everything in between. Timothy has appeared on television shows such as CDUSA, the KTLA Morning News and the Ellen DeGeneres show. He's traveled the country with the likes of Chris Brown, El DeBarge, Tyrese Gibson, J*Davey, Jamie Foxx, Lalah Hathaway, Gary Taylor and Billy Davis and Marilyn McCoo of 5th Dimension.

Bassist for Dwayne Dopsie and The Zydeco Hellraisers
Groove is at the heart of Antar Goodwinís playing. This fact has made him one of New Yorkís first call players. Equally comfortable in the studio and on the stage, he has played electric and acoustic bass on many of NYCís best stages
Born in Philly, bassist and composer Antar Goodwin spent the early part of his life moving with his family. He had a desire to play that showed at a very early age. By the age of five, he was playing drums, and by seven piano and classical violin
When asked how he got started in music Antar states that ìmusic started in meî. His earliest memories are of plunking out melodies on his familyís worn out piano or beating out rhythms on chairs. His first set of drums was purchased after his parents realized that a used drum set was cheaper than new chairs. By the time he was in his teens he traded in his violin and was playing bass, piano and beginning to write songs.
Already a Berklee College of Music alum, Antar next received a scholarship to study at Kripalu, in Lenox MA. Here he met an older fellow traveler who had a measure of success in the music industry, but had become disillusioned with the direction in which he saw his career going. The two became instant friends. Antar spent the next sixty days listening to stories and absorbing musical concepts. It was his new mentor that gave him his first acoustic bass, and even more importantly, the conceptual foundation that would shape his sound for years to come.
The next experience would prompt him to start his own group. While in rehearsal with Abbey Lincoln, she pulled him aside and told him that he "was jazz, past and present and future" and that he "had all that [he] needed to be great, [he] just had to let it out."

After years of wear, i was forced to retire my regular touring bass. In search of something new, I stumbled upon Bass Mods' k6 and didn't think twice. The description/specs read like it had been built for me. And upon arriving at my doorstep 'still feels that way. I'm just beginning to explore all this bass has to offer, but if last night's gig was any indication- A long relationship with Bass Mods is to follow. Thank you Robert for making a real "bass players' bass"...dig it! ☼

I'm Tim "88Karats" Tyler and I've played for artist such as J Moss, Tamala Mann, James Dabarge, Local artist Chris O'neal, Carla Hunt, and currently playing at Greater Christ Temple Church in Stockton, CA. I just received my K6 Cherry Sunburst bass and I love it, from the look to the sound, it feels great and sounds great right out the box. I have gotten many compliments on this bass and a lot of interest as well and I will continue my business with Bass Mods.

"This is a well built, quality instrument. Fit and Finish on par with much more expensive models.
It's definitely lighter on my shoulder that my G&L 2500 and well balanced.
The pick-ups (Kent Armstrong) get a good clean sound and the controls let me dial in tonal variations. I'm a simple bass player so I talked to the guys at Bass Mods and they changed the pre-amp to match my needs.
I'm glad I took a chance on this one (the one pictured with the face). Give 'em a try - I love mine."

"Great bass for the price point. As a matter of fact, I would say unbeatable for the price. I am still taking it through its paces and it keeps me sounding good!"

"Awsome bass! Pickups and preamp are top notch that u will find on more expensive basses! Deep and punchy sound w/clean highs very funky!"

"Incredible bass for the money. Fit and finish were excellent and the tone is amazing. Output is strong and the onboard electronics give you a variety of tones. The pickups are clear and deliver all the nuances of my playing. The block inlays and wenge neck are a beautiful contrast and the neck feels wonderful. Looks, plays, and feels like a custom boutique bass. "

"I cannot afford those higher modeled bass guitars such as Fender MTD nor Brubakers. I just purchased the Spalted Maple MOD6 with wenge fretboard. The whole instrument from the wood to the electronics has great quality build on it. The options for shaping your tones are all in this thing. I received all the help in the world from the guys here at BassMods and then some. I can't wait to see the newer models that are arriving later this month. Wow, go BassMods! ; )"

This is one of the best basses Ive ever played. You can get any tone you need. I play gospel, hip hop and r & b and this bass will give you every sound you need to make it through a gig, tour or studio session. Im so glad I bought this bass. Why spend $3,000 for a Ken Smith, Fender, MTD or any other high dollar bass when you can save money with Bass Mods and still get all the Bass that the other big name Bass Guitar Company's offer and more. BASS MODS is #1 in my book. Looking forward to playing Bass Mods for a long time.

Dear BassMods, I've recently received one of your basses from your eBay store this past week. It's a white, K4VV model, 4-String Jazz Bass Guitar. I just wanted to drop you an message to let you know that I really enjoy this instrument. I've been getting acquainted with it and putting it through its paces, and I must say--It's a high quality product, with wonderful features and great looks. The pre-amp is one of the best I've heard (not to mention easy to get the feel for), and the play-ability is simply remarkable. A first-class set-up upon delivery, and the intonation was spot-on (thank your techs for me). I'm very satisfied with the guitar and I'm going to be recommending your products to others.Thanks, I appreciate the voice. Regards, Chad
