Hellborg Rig - Rocks 'The Voice'

Was watching 'The Voice' tonight and noticed in the background, not 1 but 2 Hellborg rig's.
WOW.....
That a lot of fire power!

Looks like some of the singers on the show aren't the only ones with nice tone! :D

The band sound great and the Bass player has some very tasty chops.
I downloaded a track by Darren Percival last season - "Wherever I lay my hat", and the Bass playing was beautifully smooth!

I'm assuming (mainly due to him using 2 Hellborg rig's) he may be an endorsed artist? As I noticed Warwick basses popping up quiet a bit last season too.
Great stuff, & Tasty Bass player!

HI Ozbass, the bass player is BYRON LUITERS. Very good player. He plays bass in the John Butler Trio, the VOICE house band and many others.

He has owned Warwick basses since 97 and much of forthcoming John Butler album has his Warwick basses all over it. On the VOICE he is using a Warwick Streamer stage 1, 5 string. A Star Bass 4 string and a Streamer CV custom with a single P Bass pickup as shown in picture here. In the other image you can see his Hellborg rig which he choose to replace the Aguilar he used last year.

The bass tones have been incredible.

Great post! I watch this with my GF and often wonder what rig that fat tone was powering from

Yeah, he has a really great solid sound on the show. Didn't know if it was the same guy or not as last year, but noticed the rig change from Aguilar to the Hellborg. Given it is the same guy, he has a great sound out of both rigs!
