I have been playing bass for 20 years, I earned a masters degree from The Juilliard School and am a full time orchestral musician. I have extensive studio recording experience, working with bands, solo artists, orchestras and chamber ensembles; performing on both electric bass and double bass.
I am currently the co-principal bassist of the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, assistant principal bassist of the Karlovy Vary Symphony Orchestra, and a member of the North Czech Capella (North Czech Chamber Ensemble).
Some record labels and artists I have worked for are Philip Glass, Deutsche Grammophon, Albany Records, Warner Music Taiwan, Nicholas Teo, Ewa Farna, Teodora Gheorghiu, Akudama, Lorette Schroth, Lisa Fitzgerald, Boston Modern Orchestra Project and recorded numerous movies scores with the Czech National Symphony orchestra.
I tend to be groove oriented in my bass lines no matter what style, at the same time I enjoy adding melodic twists to my lines and always think of what is best for the song.
I record through a FocusRite interface and have an array of bass guitars and two double basses (both four and five string). I am running reaper on a 6 core i7 MacMini with a Samson large diaphragm condenser mic and PreSonus near field monitors. Bowed upright bass lines/string parts also available.
Would love to hear from you. Click the contact button above to get in touch.

Interview with Matthew Weber
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: Normally I work with clients to fill out the instrumentation of their songs, adding bass guitar, upright bass, and occasionally a string section or electric guitars. Then I usually end up mixing the tracks and sometimes mastering.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: As a bassist: John Entwistle, Rick Danko, Flea, Kim Deal. As a mixing/mastering engineer I love the sound of the Band’s records, and really like The Smith’s sound.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I am running Reaper on a Mac mini 15gb memory, 1TB hd with PreSonus near field monitors. I use many reaper stock plugins as well as FabFilter, Waves etc. I use iZotope Ozone 8 for mastering.
