Rich Hansen is a veteran bassist from Los Angeles, formerly with Sundown Recording Artist Asa Cruz, Zero recording artist Takara, and Retrospect recording artists Graven Image. He is a former student of jazz bassists Jeff Berlin and David Friesen.
He is currently the bassist with northern Utah country artist Mile Marker Six, the jazz group Creative Tension, and Gospel Group Joyful Noise.
He has performed with and/or recorded with Journey/Yngwie Malmsteen singer Jeff Scott Soto; members of Yes, Moody Blues, Armored Saint, Anthrax; Pearl Jam/Alice In Chains producer Rick Parashar, Capitol Records Artist Sonnet Simmons, and Chuck Meyers of Big Idea Productions. As a performer, he has opened for acts such as Kansas, Billy Dean, Ricochet, and Eric Paslay.
On the Foundation Bridge, Rich has this to say: "I currently use it on my custom 5-String bass, and I love how rock solid it is once it's clamped down. I also love the complex tonal characteristics, punch and harmonics that it offers. I've compared it with the Leo Quan/Badass, Neuser, Schaller, Hipshot, as well as various OEM bridges, and the Foundation sounds as good or better than all of them that I've tried. I love it!"
