Warner/Nettwerk Records Session Bassist for $50

In Bass 100% Guarantee By cberthoud

Warner/Nettwerk Records Session Bassist for $50

First Time Clients: $25

What you will get if you hire Charles Berthoud:

Professional Experience: I have recorded albums for Warner/Chappell Production Music, and collaborated with producers from labels such as Nettwerk Records. I have completed over 200 recordings on AirGigs alone, with only 5-star reviews.
Extremely fast service and responsive communication (guaranteed takes within 48 hours)
Multiple takes for more bass line options
Clean, clear signal obtained with the highest-quality gear (see below)
ANY style - I have recorded on hundreds of songs of all different styles
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.

If you have not worked with me before, please see my other service "Special Offer - first song for $25". For a limited time only, I am making a special offer whereby your first song is $25. After that, I will charge $50 for each song. This price includes two revisions upon request.

I am an electric bassist, and graduate of Berklee College of Music, currently touring across the US with artists such as pop/rock act Skyler. I can play in all styles but am very familiar with rock, pop, funk, R&B, hip-hop, Motown, and jazz.

Gear:
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)

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.

I like to keep an open dialogue in order to give you exactly what you need. Be as specific as you can so I can deliver the best results to you. 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.

    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

    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...

  20. Review By: Nmichel5659 Nov 9, 2017

    Always timely, always great quality, and always easy to work with.

    Thank you , Charles for helping me with the bass line of my song again. Two great takes, and the bass solo is amazing. The tone and grooves, and fill-ins are all matching with my song style! Very happy with it. Thank you!!

  35. Review By: psfinnmusic Oct 1, 2017

    Great bassist and sweet turnaround time.
    I enjoy working with someone that not only takes pride in their work but also cares about your song.

  36. Review By: johnnyonguitar Sep 30, 2017

    A great bass player! Great game and great sound! It's a pleasure to work!

  41. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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!

  44. 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.

  45. Review By: jazzopie Sep 4, 2017

  50. Review By: jazzopie Aug 23, 2017

    How Charles learns a 5 min long song in two or three days...I don't know...and I don't care...he just does it and I love it!

  72. Review By: ratishsekhar May 21, 2017

    Working with Charles is a blissful experience! From the start, he understood what I was requiring and were able to arrange and produce the bass what I was after. The prompt and regular communication was incredibly helpful, and the fact he gave multiple ideas inspired with his academic background was a bonus.

    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!

  154. Review By: Kaleidoscope Jul 25, 2016

    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.

  169. Review By: mjf44074 Jun 12, 2016

    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.
