Jason Brown joins Blast Cult Upright Bass Department in Orange, CA

Press Announcement

Blast Cult is jazzed to announce the addition of luthier Jason Brown as Head of The Upright Bass Department in Orange, California.

Jason Brown has been an upright bass player and luthier for almost 30 years. His unique setups that make upright basses play to their fullest potential; whether playing arco, pizzicato, or rocking hard on a loud stage, are sought out by some of the best jazz and classical bassists in the country and the world.

He has specialised in complex repairs and restorations that have stood the test of time, and has returned many a bass from what seemed to be its grave, back to the world of the living.  From his custom orchestral C-extensions to his legendary Deuce bridge, he's been innovating and fabricating magnificent instruments through out his career. 

Brown's broad musical background and technical abilities are key ingredients for understanding the unique demands of the double bass player.  He knows what upright bass players ultimately need; as he listens closely to them and he is also a bassist himself. 

Brown was the original upright bass player in Hank Williams III (and the Damned Band) and was coincidentally followed, after his tenure, by Blast Cult’s founder and Head Luthier Jason Burns. Burns’ and Brown's paths seemed to always have much in common, and this has finally led to the logical collaboration and addition of Jason Brown to Blast Cult’s Sonic Religion.

“By joining Blast Cult, Jason Brown will be amplifying our strengths, bringing in his expertise and knowledge to the benefit of our followers and the entire bass world. Brown's experience in the jazz and classical worlds will add invaluable resources and create a wonderful stage for a brilliant move into the future of Blast Cult.”Jason Burns

Stay tuned... the best is yet to come!

Miles Mosley, is a Blast Cult legend and is considered one of the world’s ‘Premier Upright Bassists” and a “master musician and live performer” and we are delighted to have him play a Blast Cult One 4 FIVE upright bass at our booth during NAMM on Saturday the 26thJanuary from 1pm.

 

L.A born Mosley is a true force on the upright bass, incorporating effects pedals, his bow, his vocals and a horn section for his one-of-a-kind forward leaning solo projects. In addition to his solo career with his band, he has performed, recorded, produced and toured with artists including Kamazi Washington, Chris Cornell, Kendrick Lamar, Mos Def, India Arie, Lauryn Hill, Terrence Howard, Jonathan Davies of Korn, Avenged Sevenfold, Jason Mraz, Jeff Beck, Rihanna and Cee Lo Green. Mosley is a founding member and upright bass player for the acclaimed Los Angeles based group, The West Coast Get Down (WCGD), a collaborative group of musicians born and raised in Los Angeles, apart, they are some of the most sought after musicians in the world; together they are unhibited innovators moving effortlessly through multiple genres of music.

 

Blast Cult ONE 4 FIVE upright basses are unrivalled instruments. We took input from some of the most influential upright players in the world. The goal was simple…build a quality bass that can take the pounding of today’s top musicians, make it affordable, make it innovative, and above all, make it drip tone like no other upright bass today.

 

ONE 4 FIVE is our gospel of what a working class upright bass should be.
