Max Kraus on SoundBetter

From Broadway's Jersey Boys and NYC studios to Capitol Records and the LA Opera, I have performed and recorded double bass and bass guitar with world class musicians.

I have been working with orchestras, film/game composers, jazz groups, and singer/songwriter bands for over ten years on both the East and West Coast. I have a solid playing experience and education (Master of Music from USC) that I hope to use to make your project sound amazing! I want to lay down solid bass parts for singer/songwriters and provide a real bass sound for film and game composers. I can play both arco (bowed) and pizzacato (plucked) and have worked on many film and game projects in LA (including the FX show "Baskets"). I play for you and your needs and am very quick to respond to direction. I am also happy to offer my musical opinion if you want it.

I look forward to working with you!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Endorse Max Kraus
  1. Review by Pierre Charles III

    Max Kraus recorded on my debut album and brought to the table excellent feel, groove, command of his instrument, and overall musicianship. I have worked with Max for the past two years, and each performance is something special.
