WELLS MUSICIANS

JAKE ARNOTT

As a bass player, Jake took up the instrument when he was 21. His mother rewarded him for reaching the age without taking up smoking, and with that reward Jake purchased a Selmer Treble/Bass 50 and a 18″ Celestion speaker to go with a “very second-hand” Burns Sonic bass, sparking his passion for creating music.

Jake currently plays with pub rock band The Mighty Fender Twins and the Knott Brothers, an acoustic trio. Alongside playing bass, Jake is also a maker of mad instruments and has created an unusual assortment of bass banjoleles, guitar-scale basses and was recently playing a bass ukulele and banjolele with the Ukulele Funhouse Orchestra.

Jake hopes to share his musical talents with the community of Wells through the proposed Wells Contemporary Music Centre.
