I am an attorney by day, but that's really just my "backup gig" in case this whole "musician thing" doesn't work out. ;^) I was been blessed with the opportunity to write freelance reviews for Guitar World's Bass Guitar Magazine, and I contributed regularly from the Spring of 2006 up until Bass Guitar Magazine's demise. This was, in itself, a dream come true, and an opportunity for which I am truly grateful. But this was a stepping stone to bigger and better things, and I am now the Editor-in-Chief of Bass Gear Magazine ( Our first issue came out in August of 2008, and we are now the leading bass review magazine, worldwide. Of course, on the topic of my true blessings, I have a wife and two kids, all of whom I greatly adore, so my time for music/bass/songwriting/performing, and yes, even the occasional practicing, is not infinite. Nevertheless, I really enjoy my time spent playing bass, writing and recording songs, and just getting to "play" with all that great gear! This blog is a result of these external interests...

Welcome to Bowlus Bass Blog!

Well, after some external encouragement, I have decided to give this whole "blog thing" a try, and I hope to use this vehicle to consolidate some of my thoughts, comments, and experiences with various bass gear. I have posted a fair amount on, which is a fantastic resource. I am also currently a freelance reviewer for Guitar World's Bass Guitar Magazine (I've been in every issue since I came on board midway through 2006), so I will reserve some of my comments (at least initially) for my print reviews.

Please let me know if you find this useful, and/or if you have any comments.

Take care, Tom.
