Jason Vie Brooks Tribute Bass for Peter Steele from Type O Negative
Peter Steele was a long-time esh Endorser. The esh STINGER bass was the instrument of his choice. End of 2009 we discussed with him to build him a modern esh bass with Piezo System and with his unique colours. My US partner Jason Vie Brooks ( Ex Grip-Inc now LORENZO ) bass player and also a long time esh Endorser, a big TYPE O NEGATIVE fan, and also a friend of Peter Steele. He negotiated the details with him.
End of March the specifications have been fixed and the deal was ready for signing when we were shocked by the news that Peter had died. At first we thought about this news as a joke, because 5 Years ago Peter announced his death on his website. Unfortunately this time rumours became true, and we lost a great Bass player, top esh Endorser and Musician. Which now never will have the possibility to test his Signature bass? Bow Jason took the challenge, to continue the model, and after he published the news, we immediately received orders. We decided to build 13 basses as a Jason Vie Brook’s TRIBUTE to Peter Steele bass exactly after his specifications. Peter had his own kind of green, it was called VINLAND green, we got a few days before his sudden death the exact colour-code from Peter , and so we painted the Pick Ups and the Headstock Logo and all acrylic Block Inlays in the matching colour : Vineland Green.
Every bass comes with a COA - limited in 13 pieces worldwide only! – Signed by Jason Vie Brooks and the CEO of esh. Dedicated to express our respect to Peter and to honour him as a great musician and bass player. Statement of Jason Vie Brooks on the COA
Certificate of Authenticity This bass is my Tribute to Peter Steele. I have been working with Ralf Scholl, owner of Esh basses with A&R when he asked me to re-sign Peter to Esh. In the mid 1990’s, Peter and I were the only US sponsored Esh artists. I contacted Peter and told him that Ralf wanted to do a “Signature” model for him and we had been working Together for several weeks to get the details perfect. Peter was very excited and proud that Esh wanted to bestow this honour on him.
Unfortunately, the world suddenly lost Peter. I had just finalized the last of the details with Peter two days before we heard the news. So now Ralf of Esh basses and myself present the “Jason VieBrooks’ tribute to Peter Steele” bass.
Esh was at the Guitar Fight Club Show in Bischofswerda!

Adam Duce Machine Head
Adam Duce is the bassist for Machine Head (Oakland, California, formed in 1992). They are one of the pioneering bands in Thrash Metal. The band's first album, Burn My Eyes, was a big success in Europe where it garnered attention on MTV's Headbangers Ball, but in America Machine Head would not have have success until later albums. The band nearly disbanded in 2002 after negotiating off of its label, Roadrunner Records, when controversy surrounding Machine Head's 4th release "Supercharger" (released 2 weeks after Sept.11th, 2001) resulted in their songs and their then-current video for the song "Crashing Around You' (which featured burning buildings) being pulled from all media outlets. The band re-signed with Roadrunner soon after and has released two triumphant albums since, 2003's "Through the Ashes of Empires", and 2007's The Blackening, which earned Machine Head its first Grammy Award nomination.
