Suraaj Parab aka BasSuraaj is a Bassist from Mumbai. His musical journey started in 2005 after he saw his Uncle playing some chords on the Guitar. He was immediately hooked on to the sound that it inspired him to learn different styles and genres of Guitar playing. In a matter of time Suraaj was so focused on the Guitar that he had to skip one year of high school education to appear for the Trinity School of London Grade 8 Plectrum Guitar examination.

During this process, he discovered his love for the Bass Guitar and so he started playing Bass in 2013. He learnt his Bass playing and music theory under the guidance of the legendary Bassist Karl Peters and Guitar virtuoso Sanjay Divecha.

Suraaj is now a freelance Upright and Electric Bass player and is a professional musician in Indian Music industry. He has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of the best musicians in India like Suraaj Sathe, Karl Peters, Shailaja Subramanium, Sandeep Thakur, Finix Ramdas and many more. He has also won a poll for his “groovy” Bass playing.

How did you discover Nordstrand? My Mentor Mr. Karl Peters every bass is loaded with Nordstrand pickups and Electronics. He is kind enough to give me his instruments to play. There I discovered Nordstrand.
