Bruce Kaminsky is simply a genius. -Oteil Burbridge

Just a quick note to let you know that I gigged out with my KYDD. The bass was awesome and boy, did it turn some heads! It did an amazing job with the bluegrass and older country stuff , and held it's own quite well with the contemporary country as well. It was a hoot to play Rockabilly with it, even getting some of the slap sound. All in all, a great instrument. - Brad Cooper

The Kydd bass plays even better than I thought it would and the sound is fantastic. Good Job! - Colin Toline
