Italian pro FX company Nemphasis has added two new endorsing artists to its growing roster of international users – bassist David Kyle Payne and guitarist Elliott Randall.
UK distributor, Madison and Fifth says: ‘Over the last few years Nemphasis has become renowned in its native Italy and beyond for high quality, hand built analogue effects for guitar and bass at realistic prices. The two new artist signings reflect the breadth of appeal of Nemphasis products, bringing together up and coming UK bass session player David Kyle Payne and the legendary US guitarist Elliott Randall.
Payne has been playing bass guitar from the age of eleven and although only on the professional circuit for three years, is already one of the most respected bass and double bass players in the UK, currently full-time bass player for chart-topping UK Producer Sigala and X-Factor winner Joe McElderry.
Payne uses the Nemphasis VT-Comp Bass and the O2 Pro Oxygen Bass Preamp and says ‘The VT Comp Bass is the most efficient compressor pedal I have seen on the market; simple, intuitive and effective. And as soon as I plugged in the O2 Oxygen Bass Preamp I knew it was the sound I had been looking for’
Elliot Randall’s guitar solos on Steely Dan’s 1972 ‘Reelin’ In The Years’ and ‘Fame’ (the motion picture) have entered Rock history annals. Randall uses the Nemphasis VT Comp Guitar Optical Compressor which he describes simply as a ‘class act’!
