Artist Appreciation Post: First of all everyone please wish @satomixevil3 a very Happy Birthday!
It should be no secret that @deerhoof are one of my favorite bands of all time. When I first reached out to them about 6-7 years ago I was still very wet behind the ears, but I believed in what I was making.
The ever gracious Ed Rodriguez was first to respond and invited me to come out to a soundcheck to peddle my wares. Everyone in the band made me feel very welcomed. Satomi was immediately drawn to a short scale chambered Sacramento and asked to buy it on the spot, however I had built it for another customer and had to deny her. Very embarrassing!
But we embarked on a custom build together and incorporated some special touches to make the bass her own. Since then, some of the most rewarding moments of this career have been seeing that bass in the hands of Satomi and the rest of the band and even hearing it on recent records!
Don`t be afraid of those dreams! ...
