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.

    Hello Everyone!
    I am a recording/mixing engineer up in Anchorage Alaska. It is pretty tough to find a great sessions bassist up here that not only can play bass but also follows through with commitments and feedback.

    I have to say that Charles Berthoud does both! He not only nailed the first 4of8 songs with no revisions. He more importantly took feedback professionally, and executed the feedback with a positive attitude and brought my clients songs to a ultra-hi end, commercially viable lev

    Once again, an outstanding performance! :-)

  46. Review By: Muscimolo Aug 21, 2018

    This was an exceptional experience! This was a fast progressive rock song with frequent changes in time signatures. Not only Charles handled in a timely manner, but he surpassed my expectations. He was very creative and able to improve the bass part. I’m a detail-oriented person, but there was no need of changes to the performance and I accepted the first version Charles sent.
    Highly recommended!

  47. Review By: lobster1234 Aug 19, 2018

    Excellent bassist, able to quickly come up with excellent rolls and riffs to my track.

    Thank you Charles,

    You have added so much value to my song by gracing it with you talent. You work so incredibly quickly which I admire and appreciate. You provided multiple iterations to choose from which left me confident that the bass line was the best it could possibly be. It's the perfect blend of simple and sophisticated.

    Another amazing bass track by Charles!

  87. Review By: AndrewBrook Jun 25, 2018

    Charles took my midi bass line, played on a keyboard, and returned me three versions - one just as I had sent, and two alternatives that were more free-style. This was very thoughtful and I am going to use the more complex version rather than my original idea. Thank you very much, Charles, I will definitely use you again.

    Amazing as always

  95. Review By: karthikr03 Jun 10, 2018

    Brilliant work from Charles again. One thing that never ceases to amaze me about Charles is his ability to induce the right level of complexity in bass lines for a given piece of arrangement. Working with Charles makes it easy on a producer / composer. I dont have to give a lot of inputs, i dont have to explain my workflow and so on. Charles almost always exceeds my expectations and brings in a lot of experience. Glad to have frequent collaboration with Charles. Looking forward to the next one.

    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.

    Awesome!!!

  122. 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.

  123. Review By: scobriggs May 7, 2018

    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!

  188. 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.

    I was smiling the whole time listening to what cberthoud bass tracks. This is my first time to hire from airgigs and I'm so happy. What he provided me is more than enough. I totally agree on all the positive comments here about cberthoud. Good job and I'll definitely hire him again for my low-ends. I finally found my studio bass player :-) Thank you so much

  224. Review By: Nmichel5659 Nov 9, 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.

  246. 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.

  247. 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!

  248. 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.
