My Gear

My blog

Andreas Bennetzen (Andy Benz), double bass player & composer

I get many questions on what instruments and strings I use so I decided to make this page dedicated to "My Gear"


I use D´addario Hybrid strings because they give me the exact combination of abilities I need for cross-over music. One day playing classically inspired music and the next live Drum ´N´Bass. They are equally good for Arco & Pizzicato. I love them!


For some years now I have been using the Yamaha SLB 100. It is a fantastic instrument made from the highest quality wood and with top electronics. It is especially great with effects due to its very linear and equal sound throughout the entire fingerboard.


Feel free to ask my any questions you have!
