The great 11 strings bassist.

Ever seen before a string instrument that looks like this? It's a 11- strings bass. And this guy here, named Jean Baudin, plays it superbly well.

From My

"As on of the earliest pioneers of the 9-string bass, Nuclear Rabbit's Jean Baudin has been taking the instrument to an entirely new level since 1999.

Jean is known throughout the world for his work with Nuclear Rabbit and Element of Surprise. Jean's style mixes intense tapping, slapping and fingerstyle. Primarily self-taught, Jean has studied privately with guitarists Marty Friedman and Jason Becker as well as bassist Wally Voss. Over the years, Jean's bands have shared the stage with groups such as: System of a Down, Papa Roach, Alien Ant Farm, Deftones, P.O.D., Linkin Park, A.F.I., Green Day, Mindless Self Indulgence and Bad Brains. Jean is currently working on a Solo CD that will feature solo pieces and multi-layered tracks on both the 9 and 11-string."
