Michael Cassels - Bass

Neon Avenue, “Dangerous” Dan Toler, Vinnie Amico

“Back in the 80s I saw a bass player playing a Rickenbacker 3001 through a Peavey guitar amp. He was getting one of the baddest overdriven sounds I ever heard. I tried several pedals and never found that sound. The Expandora gives me the over driven sound that I had been searching for for many years. Finally I have the pedal I always needed.”
