The Fretless Wonder

Composing adapting

A good way not to get stuck in old habits and licks is to write music on other instruments. Right now I’m adapting a little piano improvisation to fretless bass and loop pedal. Hopefully it will turn into beautiful music.

Revisiting “Chord Studies”

The “Chord Studies” was a big part of my exercises way back when I was a student. I thought it could be great fun revisiting this old friend and adapting it to the high C tuning on the fretless. Being chord based it’s easy to lay down a chord drone in the Ditto looper to practice over, sharpening the intonation.


When we put something together there is, no matter what we like to think, a voice for it all. This song, is so pretty, so clear, so beautiful, so beautifully executed. It certainly part of what I had in my head. Thank you for sharing it Jonny
– Jule Potter from Jule Amps on the song “In My Head”

In My Head – Lianda Van Der Schilden feat. Jonny Trobro

First song played on “The Fretless Wonder”, the 5-string Ozellman fretless bass by UNICORNbass.
Bass played through the FEAlabs DB-CL compressor and Jule Amps Monique all tube preamp.

In My Head – Recording Session

Bass track recorded and is on it’s way.
First track to be blessed by the “Fretless Wonder” – soon in a cloud near you.

Proton White

The latest addition to the pedal library. A limited white edition of the Proton by 3leaf Audio.
After returning the Copilot FX pedal and receiving the refund for it, I decided to stay in the Darkglass/3leaf family where the quality always is on top.

Gold in place

@Unicornbass Gold knobs mounted. Looks awesome, like the rest of the instrument.

A golden welcome

Just got home from London, and in the mail, a golden welcome home from UNICORNbass. The six missing knobs for the Ozellman bass.
Will change them tomorrow.
