Tim Surrett

Artist of the Month | November 2013


Tim uses the Bass Master Pro:

Last week my band Balsam Range played at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, for the IBMA awards show. We were nominated for three awards, and won for song of the year!

The best part of the entire experience was the response to my bass tone. At our soundcheck, the stage manager came to me and said, “That is by far the best bass sound that we’ve had.” He asked what system I was using, so I explained the Bass Master Pro to him.

At that time, the house sound engineer came onstage to ask the same question. He told me that was the best upright tone that he had gotten, and wanted to look at it as well. Both of those guys work for Alison Krauss, so I was elated at their enthusiasm for my sound.

That night we played the awards show, and I can’t tell you how many people came to me with compliments on the bass sound. It was a great thing to have so many people talking about the great bass tone on what was the most important performance of our band’s career!

I am a member of the bluegrass band Balsam Range. We are a traveling band, with a busy schedule.

For the months of February through June, we have held the Number 1 spot on the Bluegrass Unlimited Bluegrass Survey for our album,”Papertown.” We also have the current Number 1 song (July). We currently have a video playing at cmtedge.com for the song “Papertown.”

We won IBMA Song Of The Year in 2011 for “Trains I Missed.”

This year we have already performed at the Grand OLE Opry and the Ryman Auditorium. We will make our second appearance in September at Zac Brown’s Southern Ground Festival in Charleston, SC.

I am also a recording musician. The most notable recent session was to play bass on the new collaboration of Doyle Lawson, JD Crowe, and Paul Williams.

I am also an elected member to the IBMA Board Of Directors.

I have been using the Bass Master Pro on my upright for several years now, and the response is tremendous.
