Sean Frankhouser

Bassist with Bugs Henderson

As bassist with the late Texan guitarist Bugs Henderson, Sean Frankhouser helped provide the low end rhythm for their brand of searing blues, jazz, swing, roots rock and funk all blended with an original Texas flavor.

Sean grew up in a musical family with several brothers who also played in bands, and moved to Lubbock after his father bought Lubbock’s KLLL radio station. Sean is very involved in local music including teaching at Brandon Guitar Studio and hosting a weekly jam session in Lubbock.

I laughed like a child the first time I plugged into this thing. There is real joy in gain, and the Bass Tight Drive is the first bass overdrive that really gives me a way to use that joy.  It is an amazingly well thought out and well-built overdrive that gives bass players of all stripes a reason to check out higher gain sounds.” -Sean Frankhouser
