Stu Hamm

Through his innovative work as a solo artist and his contributions as a sideman to Joe Satriani and Steve Vai, STU HAMM has firmly established himself as one of the most influential electric bassists of the past half-century. Extending the non-traditional function of the electric bass previously revolutionized by Jaco Pastorius and Stanley Clarke in the 1970s, Hamm helped to reshape the contemporary concept of the bass guitar as an unaccompanied instrument with the utilization of polyphonic, two-handed tapping, slapping and popping techniques, chords, and harmonics. Although Hamm certainly wasn’t the first bass player to debut during the 1980s and employ an unorthodox approach to playing the electric bass, he was undoubtedly at the forefront of his generation who effectively fused the application of these unconventional techniques.

STU HAMM is a world class, utterly entertaining story-teller, legendary bass guitar icon, known also for playing and recording with some of the greatest guitarists of the recent decades: Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Greg Howe, Alex Skolnick, Richie Kotzen, Mike Keneally, Allan Holdsworth, Frank Gambale, Michael Schenker, Richie Kotzen. and many others. Stu has been a monumental influence in jazz/rock style for many bass players worldwide.

STU HAMM is endorsed by Warwick basses, MarkBass amps and GHS strings.
