Ken Liao
Ken has been playing bass since 1991, starting off on a 4 string, being influence by bassists such as Metallica's Cliff Burton and Iron Maiden's Steve Harris. After listening to bass players like John Myung of Dream Theater, he moved on to a 5 string and soon after a 6 string. When he wanted to get his hands on a 7 string bass, his first and only thought was Conklin. "I wanted to match the range and versatility of the guitarists in Meyvn. The GTBD-7 allows me to fully double the guitars if needed. I don't know if my next bass will be an 8 string, but I know it will be a Conklin!" For the past decade, Ken has used Conklin basses exclusively. Once he got his hands on his first Conklin, he knew there was no reason to look at other basses. Whether he’s playing his 4/5 string basses in his tribute bands or his 7 string basses in his original progressive metal, it’s all Conklin, all the time. “They play and sound fantastic. They are very versatile, well balance and look great.” Instruments: Classic 421 GTRP-4 GT-5 GTBD-7 Conklin 7
