Solo Artist / S.M.V. / Béla Fleck & the Flecktones
“There’s never been a bass speaker like HyDrive. I’ve played through everything else that’s out there, and I choseHartke for its amazing sound and reliability.”
Victor Wooten redefines the word musician. Regaled as the most influential bassist since Jaco Pastorius, Victor is known for his solo recordings and tours, and as a member of the Grammy-winning supergroup Béla Fleck & the Flecktones. He's a true innovator on the bass guitar, as well as a talented composer, arranger, producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. After gaining extensive notoriety with the Flecktones, Victor set his sights on a solo career, first forming Bass Extremes with fellow low-end lord Steve Bailey and releasing the ground-breaking 1996 solo album Show of Hands. Victor has won two Nashville Music Awards for "Bassist of the Year" and is the only 3-time winner of Bass Player Magazine’s "Bass Player of the Year". Today, Victor continues to record and tour with the Flecktones, various other artists and as a solo artist. He also leads six to eight camps at his Wooten Woods Bass/Nature Camp each year.
