Bass Pro has hired a music guy to help run the company’s online shop, and he’s been promoted to senior manager of digital music, according to a tweet from Bass Pro’s VP of music, Chris Wysocki.
Wysockiei said that he was excited to be joining the company and that Bass Pro was looking to hire a music manager to “make sure that the store’s the place where you go for great music.”
He said he would be making sure to bring along a bass rig.
“We want to make sure that you can go to Bass Pro when you’re on the road and just get all the best music and have a great experience,” Wysicki said in a statement.
“It’s something we have to do with passion and we think that’s a good thing.”
Wysickiei has worked in the music business for a decade and is the first senior music manager at Bass Pro.
He is also a veteran of the music industry, having served as music editor at Rolling Stone.
The Bass Pro Shop will be one of the first locations to be converted to BassPro’s flagship digital store.
The company said the new store will offer a full lineup of Bass Pro gear including basses, amps, and monitors.
It will also include music production tools, plus a dedicated video editor.
Bass Pro has also expanded its digital catalog, with a digital store that now includes a wide range of BassPro products.
The store has also added a collection of gear from other companies and brands, including pedals, gear, headphones, and more.
Wyminski told Bleacher that he wants to bring music to all of Bass’s products, but he also wants to do it “on the lowest possible budget.”
“We have to keep it affordable,” he said.
“We’re looking at a price point that we can make it for our customers, and then we have the time to work on it.”
