Michael LePond

Symphony X

"Caparison basses give me a round, warm tone that can punch you in the face for the heavy stuff, and yet still deliver crystal clear definition for the melodic stuff. This bass was made with a lot of love and it shows."

Michael Anthony LePond III, best known for his work in Symphony X, is a North American bass player from Newark, New Jersey. He started playing bass at the age of 13 after hearing Gene Simmons of Kiss. Since then he’s played in “Dead on Arrival”, “Distant” and “Rattlebone”. Michael plays a Caparison Dellinger-Bass.
