Due to the situation that we have all known (pandemic containment …) I decided to use this free time to create this website in which you will find:
“ KLGO ”, : news from the band Kendrick /Lovato /Gallone /Onoe, we have created Lexie Kendrick (vocals), Sébastien Lovato (piano / keyboards), Ichiro Onoe (drums) and myself (bass), in May 2020.

-The “ 4/6/5 … strings & gear” page: In which I list the gear I use( being left-handed, I had to adapt or build my own basses very early on.)
Regarding my two double basses,(given the increasingly difficult air transport conditions) I intend to put them at the disposal of traveling bassists (under certain conditions of course), . There is a full description of these instruments.
These instruments are maintained and set-up by Gaël McKeon www.gaelmckeon.com
– There will be probably a page “Lefties” dedicated to the left-handed players : the subject is interesting, especially for those of you who teach. On this subject, episode N ° 487 of the Podcast “Contrabass Conversations” by Jason HEATH, ( https://contrabassconversations.com )
