JNTHN STEIN's Conklin Experience

     I discovered Conklin basses many years ago as a young kid, cruising the internet looking for inspiration. Eventually I stumbled upon a bass player by the name of Bill "The Buddha" Dickens playing 7 and 9 string Conklin basses, and he turned my imagination upside down completely. From then on I dreamt night and day of having my own custom Conklin 7 string, with the room and range in tone and pitch to travel through music freely. When I was 18 years old, fate finally answered and I bought the bass of my dreams, and the only bass I have needed since. I love this bass, from the butter-soft fingerboard, rich tone variety, cozy string spacing and bold body shape. The bass has inspired me to go beyond the conventions of being a bass player, from exploring the range of potential of the instrument itself to going into the horizon of electronic music's beat scene and beyond.
