Jelmer de Haan

Session Bassist

Jelmer de Haan on SoundBetter

Full time Berlin Based Bassist. Specializes in late back groovy lines.

I'm a full time session bassist living in Berlin. I have a lot of experience in the studio, and provide high quality bass and synth tracks from my studio. I can record the tracks with a tube preamp to make them sound very warm and full (the demo song was recorded like this). I have a selection of different basses , synths and effect pedals to give you the exact sound you want. I can read notes, chord symbols, or just listen to your track and compose a bass line for you.
