Nick Wakeham

Pro-Audio & Bass Guitar Expert at Cardiff

Nick Wakeham, a PMT Expert

Your favourite gear that you constantly use?
VOX Wahs and D’Addario strings – they’re the only string brand I’ll use across all acoustic, electric and bass guitars!

Favourite quote from which movie?
“Stupid is as stupid does.” – Forrest Gump

Current favourite amp?
That would have to be a Marshall JCM800. It’s got that classic 80’s growl I like, plus you can make it scream or sound mellow – it’s very versatile.

What was the first CD you ever bought?
Guns N' Roses’ ‘Appetite for Destruction’.

Musical weapon of choice?
Got to be a Gibson Standard Les Paul.

What’s the best thing about working at PMT?
It gives you the chance to learn about all different types of instruments, not just the ones you’re an expert in. I get to meet all the local musicians in Cardiff too and learn new techniques and tips from them too – it’s a genuinely great place to work!
