    Federico was really -I mean really!- quick in responding and sending ideas to improve the original request. In a matter of hours I had a fully fledged, high quality bass line, with two different sound options to choose from. Don't hesitate to work with Federico!

    Such a pleasure working with Federico! You can tell he's passionate about his his and it's just not a job for him.

    Quick communication in spite of our time difference. He sent me enough variations in the beginning that helped me finalise the parts. The Upright sounds amazing and the recording quality is top notch!

    Super quick turn around!

    Thank you Federico!

    Federico has been working with me since 2011. He is one of the most talented, versatile, creative, wonderful musicians I've ever worked with. He is professional, always on time and very pleasant to work with. He is open-minded and very well taught, a true hard worker. He has been selected by Harry Waters and John McNally to play on their tours, and has played with me live for the last nine years in many different cities and countries. I highly recommend Federico for any musical need you may have, but most importantly because he's an amazing human being.

    Fede brings the gifts of technical expertise AND emotion to his playing. Plus, he’s an incredible person, thoughtful, warm, good natured, and genuinely cares about giving you what you need, both onstage and in the studio. Equally adept at electric and acoustic bass. He brings 200% to every situation.

    I've had the opportunity to work with Fede on several occasions and each time he demonstrates what an exceptional musician he is. Not only is he a phenomenal bass player, he is also an amazing human being who will make any recording session or gig feel like the best time of your life. Fede is always one of my go to bassist whenever I am asked for a recommendation.
