1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

And now...THE BASS for metal!

    I ran across this recently. Thought you would get a kick out of it.

    Not quite sure it is the future of bass, however.

    And now the video:


    It sounds like someone playing bass and hitting a chain link fence with a hammer at the same time. It does sound good in places, however. Bet it's a ***** to keep in tune.

    Guess the fingerboard radius is like...a couple inches..? Kinda tough to use the floating thumb technique on it...

    I recall seeing that bass on TB about a year ago or so.

    That bass didn't impress me then, and it still doesn't.
