The Air Bass was designed in 1992 while at Art Center College of Design. This whimsical instrument takes elements of the wooden counterpart capturing the essence and soul of the original instrument and placing it into and electric version.

In 2002, Yamaha released and electric upright base with uncanny similarity to my AIR BASS. I was flattered in knowing that my work influenced this major music company in their commercially produced line of String Instruments from the Upright Bass to the Violin and Cello. I know they were influenced because I send them our designed back in 1994 when I was looking for a manufacturer for this instrument.











In 2002, Yamaha released this electric upright base they called the silent bass SVB 100.
