Kai is not the average bass player and playing with The Mystery Jets he moves between the standard electric 4-string bass and the upright acoustic double bass. This is obviously dependent on the need and mood of the song but he describes all of them as, “Sounding amazing through the Trace Elliot stack”.
The words used by Kai Fish of The Mystery Jets when asked about why he chose the Trace AH1200-12 with the 1048 and 1518 cabs were, "The first bass amp I ever had was a Trace". When a player claims that, and he can still be found using one to this day, it says a lot. Kai goes on to explain that: "The new stuff is even better. The head is so versatile – I can go from a really nice acoustic tone to something that's subby or more aggressive really easily.”
After this year’s Reading and Leeds festivals in August, the Mystery Jets; complete with Kai, his selection of instruments and his ever trusty Trace Elliot stack; can be found on the road solidly for the rest of this year.
