Mike Vallis
Professional Bass Player
9 and 5 String Basses

    Picking up the bass guitar at the age of 10, Mike Vallis began a journey into the world of music. Now nearly 20 years later, Mike is often reffered to as one of the top bass players in the midwest. His extensive background is a major contributer to this. Mike has played in many bands over the years; ranging from funk, jazz, rock, hip-hop, alt rock, metal, thrash, and solo bass.
In 2006, Mike delved into the world of extended range bass. Utilizing his custom Stambaugh 9 string, he is able to add a new realm of sounds into any style of music.
Bands that Mike has been in have shared the stage with other groups such as 311, No Doubt, Alien Ant Farm, 2 Skinnie J's, PAW, Silent Civilian, Bleed The Sky, Phunk Junkeez, The Urge, Sikth, System Of A Down, and many more.
Last year, the 9 string bass in the photo was carried off by a tornado that hit his town in Kansas. Amazingly,it was eventually found in perfect conition and is still an active part of his arsenal.

  This year we added to his collection with the stunning 5 string tremolo bass shown below.
