Jan Ingram

Jan Ingram is the bassist for THE TACIT ORDER, a collective of musicians from Puebla, México that began their collaboration in 2005, combining composition
and improvisation… a band characterized by their quality and originality in the studio and on the stage.

“I found MJC Ironworks strings late last year, and fell in love with them. Now I use them on every one of my basses!”

Mason Brown

Mason Brown began his life of music in 4th grade while living in Toronto – he played several instruments throughout his school years, but stuck with his original pick, the bass guitar.

Like most other musicians, he has been in numerous bands and played many styles/genres of music ranging from traditional folk to funk and metal. His biggest passion is making original rock music.

He is currently the bass guitarist for the up-and-coming band, In Crimson, based out of South Bend. The group has been highly sought out and has a busy schedule ahead.

” I was in Louisiana about two years ago at a local music shop and the person behind the counter suggested I try some strings he just got in. That was my first set of MJC Ironworks strings. I was floored by the quality of sound! I immediately bought another set for another one of my basses. Same result! Since that day, I have been exclusively using and promoting these great strings from MJC Ironworks. Nothing else even comes close! “

Stu Cook

Stu Cook, who along with his best pal Doug “Cosmo” Clifford, has provided the underpinning for some of the most classic American Rock ‘n’ Roll of the last forty-odd (and we do mean odd) years – Creedence.

He is one of a small handful of electric bassists who have helped define the genre, truly deserving of the legend status that his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame suggests. Besides keeping the flame burning for CCR, Stu was also a member of the country-rock group, Southern Pacific, and along with Cosmo, nailed down the groove for the acclaimed Don Harrison Band. About the current state of affairs Stu says, “There’s still some meat on the bone, baby.”

I am a self taught bassist who has been activily playing bass for 10 years. I started playing guitar but there were always too many guitar players so I tried bass. Since I was eight I have been playing in school bands and later in bands with friends. Although I can play many instruments such as drums, piano and guitar, bass has always been my favorite and what I excel at. My goal is to become like the bands and artists that I idolize and am influenced by. I want to be a bassist that has my own sound and hope that I can influence young musicians looking for their sound.

Steve Rickwood

A freelancer of over 2500 gigs since 1996, I have played in hundreds of bands/sessions from pubs to clubs to theatres to arenas. Touring has taken me all over the world and to many styles of music. Currently I live on the East Coast of the UK and still record tracks for people worldwide via the internet, and I still gig every week in many different bands in between lecturing for Canterbury Christchurch University.

Mauricio Morales

Mauricio Morales, nick named “Mo” or “Motown”, is a born and raised Nor Cal local. Mo quickly discovered a deep love for music and skateboarding, pursuing both actively starting in his early teens. The Nor Cal skate scene along with a deep urge for rebellion, shaped his early musical desires, yet ironically his first actual musical performance involved him backing a local seasoned guitar player on bass covering tunes by Buddy Holly and The Crickets, Tom Petty, and Neal Young. The young dreamer soon began forming different bands throughout high school. Soon after graduating high school he joined Reservoir, a heavy hard rock band and began playing the local bar scene at age 19. Reservoir soon disbanded only to re-emerge as Head Trip Legacy a Tool influenced rock band with Mo again holding down the bass end. This too eventually met its end after a short stint of local bars and house parties. Then teaming up with former guitarist of HTL, Justin Lundgren, he and Mauricio formed Mudstone another heavy rock band. Mo played in this band for over 4 years cutting his chops and playing shows. He eventually parted ways with Mudstone and with the help of his good friend and former drummer of Mudstone, Damo, formed a new three piece band called Third Class Citizen, a high energy punk style band with a classic rock singer. This too eventually came to an end with the leaving of the lead singer/guitarist. Mo and Damo continued looking for a replacement front man and at long last met Anthony Savedra. Anthony brought his reggae rock with sublime style voice to the table and the three quickly jelled. “From the first practice we knew we had something special.” They decided to give it a go and immediately began practicing and writing, and within 12 months had an 11 song self-released album out boasting the bands new name, Clever Fool. Clever Fool has been playing out from Yuba City to Sacramento to Chico, Redding, Nevada City, San Jose and even all the way in Santa Cruz

Zack Thompson

I’ve been playing bass since 2008. I have played in the church scene all my life. I grew up playing Contemporary Christian Music (CCM). My goal when playing CCM was to bring the groove from the music that I loved (funk, jazz, soul) and add it to the music that I played in church. People are thrown off when they watch me play because even though I’m white, I add soul to everything that I do. People tell me all the time “you play like an old black man,” even though I’m just a young white guy. Currently, I play for Emory Diggs, who is one of the background singers for Tye Tribbett and the worship pastor for Freedom Fellowship in Virginia Beach. I have backed Bethel artist William Matthews. I also play with a local jazz band called Licita.

The feeling of these strings is what stands out to me the most. MJC strings honestly feel lighter than they actually are. They are able to get the tone that I like in a lighter feeling string. They make complicated runs and slapping so much easier than strings I have tried in the past. I use the Nickel Plated Light Gauges on my 5 string Fodera Emperor. I couldn’t be happier with them.
