MEGADETH's ELLEFSON To Host Masterclass At 'London Bass Guitar Show'

MEGADETH's David Ellefson will host a masterclass at next year's edition of the London Bass Guitar Show, set to take place March 2-3, 2013 at Olympia Conference Centre in London, England.

Ellefson is best known for his long-time membership as bassist of the platinum-selling metal band MEGADETH, which he co-founded in 1984, selling 20 million albums, receiving eight Grammy nominations and building a fanbase of hundreds of thousands of loyal fans over the last 25 years. David is internationally recognized as a virtuoso bass guitar player and has delivered bass clinics to packed venues worldwide for many years. His recent clinic dates for the prestigious Hartke amplifier manufacturer and for Jackson Guitars, who manufacture his signature basses, were especially acclaimed. He has also delivered keynote speeches at music industry conferences in Pennsylvania and New York City. As a musician, Ellefson is regularly featured in leading magazines such as Metal Hammer, Revolver, Decibel, Bass Player and Bass Guitar.

David will attend the 2013 London Bass Guitar Show courtesy of Hartke.

"For me, Hartke is ‘the sound’ of thrash metal bass. Their HyDrive bass cabinets are better than ever and as a result, so am I," said Ellefson.

The London Bass Guitar Show promotes the art of playing bass to the general public, satisfying and exciting a demand that clearly exists.

U.K. bass players will have the opportunity to observe first-hand the latest products and gear, watch the world’s top players in action and attend masterclasses and clinics, all under one roof. Tickets give access to everything for the day — with no hidden costs.
