Keith “Keith OnBass” Askins

"Bartolini pickups and Preamps make any style of playing that much bigger in sound, giving me everything I need from powerful lows to sparkling highs with enough mids to give it the presence needed to sit right with in the mix of a band. Bartolini's have become a standard and a well known sound in the music industry"
