Hey guys, I don't meant to bring up an old thread but I just wanted to share the link where I posted a video of me playing my first improvised tune on this 8 string. I kind of rushed the song for recording but I think you get a general idea of the sound. It's going through a GK 1001 RB and an SWR 410. I've got all the EQ flat so the true sound of the instrument comes out.
To me its very similar to a big body jazz guitar. And to be honest with you I truly enjoy this bass and the aesthetics alone are breathtaking. Yes, 8 strings are on this instrument it reaches the range of guitars and pianos but also has the range of a bass too. So comments about why don't I just play guitar will be made just understand you might not get a reply back in order to prevent online arguments, that's not me at all. Anyway let me know what you think. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1aOkUwQh290
