All his electronics and pickups are manufactured in-house and designed to work perfectly with his own instruments. He also offers upgrades from other well known manufacturers such as Seymour Duncan, Lollar, Nordstrand, EMG, and Aguilar.

The sound is very transparent and pure, perfect for bass players who want to express themselves through their feel and touch.
