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...

Tom's Gear For Sale!

It may come as a surprise to some of you that I would even consider selling anything, but the truth of the matter is that I do have a finite amount of space (and not-infinite resources!), so every now and then, something has to go. This is a list of gear that I might sell. I reserve the right to change my mind at any point, so if you see something you really like, hopefully you'll catch me in the right mood. ;^] Once I commit to a sale, though, I will of course follow through.
