John Ferrara


Consider The Source

“Playing Hartke, I never have to worry about getting lost in the mix. The mids are clear and cutting, and the low end is sure to fill any room I'm in.”

John Ferrara is the bassist for sci-fi Middle Eastern fusion band Consider the Source. Originally hailing from New York City, the band now tours the globe year-round, playing concerts and teaching master classes on fusing Middle Eastern and Western music. Individually, John has earned praise in the bass world for his unique, aggressive and rhythmically complex approach to slap bass. He's an avid user of Hartke amps, cabinets and combos, and credits a big part of his sound to them.
