Hi, I'm Sebastian de Urquiza, and is going to be great to work together!

If you need a bass or double bass for your song you came to the right place. I guarantee you professionalism, versatility and good communication! Ready for playing the bass line your song needs!

I have more than 10 years of experience, and I’ve been playing and recording for several musicians around the world. Experienced improviser and sight-reader. I deeply love looking for accurate and original bass lines with deep sound.

With bass: pick, fingerstyle. I can process the sound or just from a DI box.
