Bass guitar player Tony Levin, best known for his work with Peter Gabriel and King Crimson, has used a Micro-VRAmpeg Bass Amp Head in a recent performance with his group the Stick Men.

According to Ampeg's RoundSound news page, Levin specially requested the Ampeg Micro VR Bass Amp Head before a show at the 2010 Winter NAMM conference.

"We knew that the Micro was awesome, so we hooked Tony and his Chapman Stick partner-in-crime, Michael Bernier, up with a full Micro rig and the rest is bass history," said RoundSound.

The praised the pair's performance – noting the adaptability of both musicians and ability to play everything from "growling bass to shredding highs" on their Chapman Sticks.

Bass guitar player Levin has played and toured with a huge range of artists in the past as a session guitarist – including John Lennon, Lou Reed, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper and Carly Simon.
