    Legend. As I said in my other reviews, there is no better bassist on this site than Chris. Period.

    The best in the business. 3rd track Chris did of many more! Speedy and a monster at his instrument. Don’t look anywhere else for a bassist, Chris is the guy.

    OK. As a guitarist who has spend unrecoverable time and dollars on the quest for tone, I thought I had it down. That was until I received Chris's final bass mixes. His bass makes my guitars sound like coke cans being squashed on the footpath. His tone, the squasher of sed cans!

    But seriously if you live in an area where bass players are more unreliable than tradesmen or you just don't like to leave the studio on the quest for eligible low end gurus. Do yourself a kindness and hire Chris. Pro!

    Chris is hands down the best. So quick and clear and cares about the sound and style. Second of many tracks with Chris, this guy is the G.O.A.T.

    Wow. Blown away. Quick response and quick delivery, but the most important part is that he nailed everything. Chris is a pro!!

Interview with Chris Kollias

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: In general I am obsessed with signal pathing. Always trying to improve and offer top quality. I run my gear through Red Sound cables, into a Line Audio 2MP preamp & RME ADI2 conversion. I am using an RME Raydat pci-E audio interface for maximum workload and 0 latency. Using Cubase 10 as my DAW. I have a pair of KRK Rokit monitors and DT770 Pro headphones.

  3. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  4. A: Most of my completed jobs are metal related

  5. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  6. A: Adaptable and flexible

  7. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  8. A: I try to create lines that will serve the song as a whole, pushing it with energy.

  9. Q: What's your typical work process?

  10. A: After receiving the stems or the separate tracks, I setup everything in a project and check that all is fine. If there are certain instructions or guidelines I follow them and create a rough track for the recording. After sorting everything out and having the final form of the bass track, I record it with fresh strings and final takes.
