“I have recorded Jerry Barnes and heard his amazing playing in many of the best Venues and studios in the world. I have never heard his sound like I did at the North Sea Jazz Festival In Curacao where he debuted his Ronin. The Ronin “Jerry Bass” had everything I’ve looked for in a bass both live and in the studio. The tone was clear in the top end with very precise mid range and a warm and powerful bottom. I never heard notes dying out or the bottom mudding up it was simply magic in the bottom end for me in the mix. I was equally impressed with the craftsmanship of the Ronin, that bass is a beautiful instrument through and through.”
