Dennis Gerber from Anaheim, California and his Hamer CH-12 12-string bass


Dennis on stage with the band "Bad Fonzie" at the Surf City Saloon in Huntington Beach, California. Dennis writes, "We have played together off and on for 20 years, since high school. We play a wide range of covers,  including Beatles, Ramones, Wings, U2, Elvis and of course lots of Cheap Trick."


"I play through a simple Gallien-Krueger Backline 250-watt amp through an Eminence 15" speaker.

Minimal effects for the 12 are light chorus with a hint of distortion to get the Tom Petersson growl."


In addition to the Hamer CH-12, Dennis plays a vintage Fender Jazz bass and a Rogue Beatle bass that has been re-fitted with Hofner components. About the 'mock Hofner' bass Dennis writes, "It's 1/3 the cost and ALL of the sound."
