Bass Player



After a six-month search for our champion, Italian bassist Leo De Santi was named Bassist Of The Year 2019 at the UK Guitar Show in September, in associatio­n with Orange Amplificat­ion. Three finalists were selected by a stellar panel of celebrity judges – Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, Stu Hamm, Mark King and Vulfpeck’s Joe Dart. The live final saw each finalist given a five-minute window to impress our judges, editor Joel McIver, progressiv­e legend Nick Beggs and noted performer and educator Ariane Cap. Leo has won an Orange Terror Bass head, two OBC112 cabs, an Orange O Bass and other prizes, while the other finalists Marine Courtin and Andreas Oxholm each receive an O Bass and goody bag. Congratula­tions, all!
