Dunlop Presents Bass Freq's

Host Josh Paul catches up with the talented new school thrasher Nick Schendzielos on technique, gear, and ways to stay inspired and collaborate with others.

Show Notes

 Graced with an incredibly fast thumb, Nick “Shinz” Schendzielos has become a highly respected and in-demand bass player. He brings double-thumb, tapping, slapping, chords, and fingerstyle techniques to thrash and death metal—genres whose bass players have traditionally only used fast fingers and pick strokes.

Nick complements his deadly serious chops with a killer sense of humor, and through it all, his intense dedication to craft, finding great tone, and creating great music keeps him motivated. He currently dishes out complex low-end grooves for Job For A Cowboy and Cephalic Carnage, to which he also lends his vocals. In the past, he’s also played with Havok and  Vimana.
