In the US, bass player Benjamin Sturley, who works with Noah Cyrus and Selena Gomez said about his KT Platform: “Wow, this is a game changer. This feels incredible. Really makes it possible on a silent stage to have more of a connection with the crowd and the music.”

Meanwhile, Canadian bassist Doug Elash, who plays with Tim Hicks, said: “It has been a game changer for me since the Tim Hicks band went exclusively with amp modeling. Even with a great in ear mix I still missed my amp. Now I find using the platform is even better than having my amp.” Doug is using a TT6 Equipped KT Platform.
