Multiple takes for more bass line options
Rapid, responsive communication
Clean, clear signal obtained with the highest-quality gear and plugins (see below)
ANY style - I have recorded on hundreds of songs of all different styles (please listen to my audio samples)
Genuine care for your song - I want your song to be great, for the sake of good music, your career, my career, everything. I will do everything I can to ensure that my bass line elevates your song to a new level and helps you achieve the sound you are looking for.

LeFay D-Tuner Bass (4-string)
LeFay D-Tuner Piccolo Bass
MusicMan Stingray (5-string)
Muckelroy Fretless Bass (4-string)
Universal Audio Apollo Twin Interface (includes a great preamp)
Universal Audio plugins

The LeFay has such a great sound that I need minimal gear. It has a built-in preamp, and even when I record with top producers, they usually just use the natural sound of the bass with some EQ and compression.

I have a great technical command of the bass, allowing me to play simple or busy, while always locking in with the groove. Just listen to my Soundcloud and satisfied customers!

I can read charts or learn the song by ear.

Thanks for reading!

Also need guitar for your track? Try piccolo bass instead! I'll do a package deal - $70 for a bass line and piccolo bass on your song. Watch my video to hear what the piccolo bass sounds like.

    Charles never fails to amaze. Superb bassline with a cool Hook for my song.
    Exactly what I was looking for... Thanks a lot Charles...

  4. Review By: nickastro May 15, 2018

    Really wonderful Bass & Piccolo Bass. Charles adds so much more than just a bass track. His interpretation and subtle touches are artistic.

  5. Review By: scobriggs May 15, 2018

    A fantastic bass player!

  6. Review By: 4DistanceX May 13, 2018

    We were delivered bass tracks for our song that simply are second to none; brilliant work by an artistic soul whose production now acts as the backbone for our oncoming song. The package received consisted of three versions for us to use, each are masterpieces and each being different to eachothers, giving us the chance to pick the most fitting one for our song. I am looking forward for further cooperation and can warmly recommend this bassist for all who want to have the best of result.

  8. Review By: Brainsqueezed May 9, 2018

    I have been working with Charles for an entire album. Charles is very professional and easy to work with. His tracks are always very melodic and of very good technical quality (both dry and processed versions). Let him suggest its own version, that opens new perspectives. I will certainly work again with Charles.

  9. Review By: scobriggs May 7, 2018

    Another fantastic bass part!

  10. Review By: GerryN May 6, 2018

  12. Review By: Brainsqueezed May 3, 2018

    This time, I provided Charles with a song with no bass track. I gave him a couple of guidelines only and Charles came with several tracks that fitted perfectly. Great collaboration work. This guy knows how to slap :-) Highly recommended and so easy to work with.

  13. Review By: crosskulture May 2, 2018

    LOOK NO FURTHER; Charles simply is the BEST. No matter if i am recording here in America or touring in Senegal: West Africa, Charles is always spot on and delivers only the HIGHEST QUALITY bass tracks. Thanks again brother; your bass tracks are ROCKING the airwaves throughout WEST AFRICA ... KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK...Untill next time... Big Up

    Charles is an amazing bass player! The whole experience was outstanding - timely, professional, and just what I requested! I am a first time user of this type of musical service and I had a lot of questions and concerns. Both Charles and the Airgigs help team were really good about addressing any question I had and helping me with my technology questions.
    I LOVE the bass line that Charles played for my song and will definitely do this again!
    Thank you for making it so easy!

    Great experience. Easy to work with, wonderful player. Five stars.

  74. Review By: mostephe Feb 7, 2018

    I am SO pleased with Charles' work on my song. I normally play all the bass tracks on my project's songs, and have been a professional live and studio bassist for almost 15 years. BUT we really wanted a virtuosic fretless sound for this particular song. Charles was perfect and kindly took all my revisions in stride. His services were of the utmost professionalism throughout the process and I plan to reach out to him again on future tracks.

    Do not look any further; you will NOT find a more accomplished Bass Player anywhere... I detailed exactly what I wanted and Charles delivered exactly what I wanted on the very first try... no revisions necessary... he delivered a very delicate African bass line that is absolutely magical... now it's back to the studio so I can get more work to Charles as soon as possible...

  110. Review By: Nmichel5659 Nov 9, 2017

  131. Review By: ealexo87 Sep 14, 2017

    Charles is a very talented musician and has excellent communication.
    He understood the brief of the project immediately and we achieved a great sounding bass stem that is of commercial quality.

  132. Review By: jazzopie Sep 8, 2017

    I've hired Charles 3 times to redo the bass on my tracks because he always does what is right for the track, it always improves the track and it's always way better than I expected. He keeps the beat gojng and adds some melody, reminds me of Paul McCartney (one of the great rock bassists of all time) sometimes. Tight efficient and delivers quickly.

  133. Review By: parnellstreet Sep 7, 2017

    I am sitting here with colorful markers and glitter -- preparing my "Charles is #1" sign. Then I said, "perhaps that's too much...a bit overboard as they say." But how else shall I proclaim his dopeness? He has the tone, feel, and sense of song to make your woofers dance, and is gifted enough to add flourishes and embellishments that melt into a production perfectly. I am sincerely looking forward to the next batch of tunes we work on together!

  134. Review By: TShevory Sep 4, 2017

    Charles was great to work with. He delivered three tracks in just a couple of days, with varying degrees of complexity. They were all excellent. I would definitely work with him again, and I will.

  135. Review By: jazzopie Sep 4, 2017

    This is the second time I hired Cberthod and he was quick, efficient and imaginative. He's now my go to guy for Bass. He's a real professional and goes the extra mile to give you what you need.

    Amazing work as usual! Charles always hears exactly what the song needs and offers high quality recordings. There's no one I trust more with recording bass for our songs. He'll give you exactly what you want and more! If you know exactly what you're looking for he'll go right with it, but if you allow him to use some creative freedom on your track as well you'll truly be blown away by his input and abilities. 10/10 as always!

    Charles Berthoud è il miglior bassista con cui ho avuto l'onore di lavorare. perfetto come groove, perfetto come suono, perfetto come intensità e ritmica.
    Ho lavorato con lui diverse volte, e sempre sono rimasto pienamente soddisfatto.
    Per ogni canzone mi consegna 3 tracce differenti. una basica, la seconda più movimentata, e la terza è quella più "ambiziosa".
    In questo modo posso scegliere tra diverse alternative, tutte valide.

    This is the actual feedback I gave Charles when I accepted the work:

    I've made a preliminary bass comp from what you sent and included it in the rough mix which has now been sent to the guitarist in Nashville. Thank you for the great performances--three takes. My approach was to use about 80% from take 1 and 20% from the other two takes--I went simple for now to give the guitarist the most space. Later I can pull some cool bass licks from the latter two takes and comp them in as appropriate.

  260. Review By: cailowe Jun 11, 2016

    Great musical taste, astonishing sound.
    Charles' playing is marvelous, it's a perfect fit.
    In just one day delivered smooth, groovy bass, giving rhythm to my song.
    Very, very, very recommended!!!

    Perfect as usual. Charles is a great bass player, and gets the work done remarkably quick. You won't find a better person to work with, just can't say enough about working with him. Excellent.
