Renowned Bassist Bubby Lewis Launches Signature FretWraps With Gruv Gear
Gruv Gear is proud to launch the new Bubby Lewis Signature ‘Otaku’ FretWraps.
Robert ‘Bubby’ Lewis is one of the most skilled young bass players around today. His renowned chops and acrobatic fingers see him holding the bass line down for artists such as Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Jhene Aiko. He is also heard on video game soundtracks and has released his own music under the record label Ropeadope.
The new Bubby Lewis ‘Otaku’ Signature FretWraps feature a color-shifting iridescent chrome fabric finished with a red label embroidered with the word ‘Otaku’. Otaku is a term used for people who have a strong passion for an interest or hobby and reflects Bubby’s love for the country’s culture.
Gruv Gear’s FretWraps have been a staple in every guitarist’s and bassist’s arsenal. They are easy to use, inexpensive, padded string dampeners which allow players to play cleaner with a more consistent sound. The adjustable FretWraps effectively suppress sympathetic resonance, overtones and string noise adding clarity to sound for both guitar and bass players.
Talking about his new Signature FretWraps, Bubby Lewis shares : “Being gifted with my very own signature Otaku FretWrap that totally represents who I am as a person? It’s like a dream come true for me! And the best part is that it’s not just for me…. it’s for all the Otakus out there!”
Jay Baldemor, President of Gruv Gear said: “We consider Bubby family and one of our top brand ambassadors, so a signature product has been long overdue. Bubby dresses in wild outfits and absolutely loves Japanese culture (and recently moved to Tokyo), so it was very fitting to create a more eccentric look with the Otaku FretWraps to complement his unique style.”
