As one of the earliest pioneers of the 9-string bass, Nuclear Rabbit's Jean Baudin has been taking the instrument to an entirely new level since 1999.
Jean is known throughout the world for his work with Nuclear Rabbit and Element of Surprise. Jean's style mixes intense tapping, slapping and fingerstyle. Primarily self-taught, Jean has studied privately with guitarists Marty Friedman and Jason Becker as well as bassist Wally Voss. Over the years, Jean's bands have shared the stage with groups such as: System of a Down, Papa Roach, Alien Ant Farm, Deftones, P.O.D., Linkin Park, A.F.I., Green Day, Mindless Self Indulgence and Bad Brains.
Jean has 4 Custom Conklins - three 9-strings, including a Signature Model as well as Pac-Man Themed bass. Bill and Mike also built their very first 11-string Bass for Jean.
