Why use Online Bass Player?
Years of experience in studio and online sessions
Over 20 years of studio experience and over 5 years of online sessions
Dan played his first paid session when he was 13 years old and has been at home in the studio ever since. From an early age he studied the greats such as Pino Palladino, Tony Levin, Nathan East, Jaco, Marcus Miller, Anthony Jackson and Will Lee. Being exposed to a wide variety of musical situations from orchestras to folk bands and everything in between has taught him the versatility required in the studio. Through this site he has played for music makers from every continent on the planet (apart from Antarctica!).
Finding the right tone for your track is essential and having a bass line that can sit perfectly in the mix is the goal. At Online Bass Player Dan has built up a vast array of instruments from vintage Fender, MusicMan, Gibson and Rickenbacker basses as well as some modern greats such as Lakland. The idea is to cover the full spectrum of available bass tones including double bass and synth bass. High quality AD conversion and top quality leads, amps and DIs complete the chain.
Tracks are never rushed but if you need something in an hour, ask Dan – he has done it many times. As a full time musician he is able to dedicate a lot of time to Online Bass Player. Having dealt with over a hundred clients, the aim is make sure your requirements are understood exactly and carried out beyond your expectation. It is normal to provide 2 or 3 takes per track and you will get them when you need them and not after.
The main benefit of using a remote session player is that you do not have to hire a studio or any associated costs (engineer, gear etc.). All of these costs are absorbed in the quote for the job. At Online Bass Player the per cost track is reduced drastically the more tracks you have. Dan always runs deals and offers so be sure to sign up to the newsletter to keep updated.

When we were struggling to find a bass player to record with us in the short time we had, Dan came along and spectacularly picked up the tracks we needed to record. He is very dedicated and professional and did not stop until the tracks were exactly where we wanted them to be! The bass-lines he did for us in particular Hollow and Tomorrow were perfect and beyond our expectations. Top bloke as well!
Voodoo Diamond, UK - Band.
Dan has an incredible ability to know what each song needs, and how to deliver it. He made every track he touched, shine. A fantastic talent and a great guy to work with – a definite go-to man.
