    By Moderator special request (happy to oblige!) here's me putting my '95 CR5 through its paces on my new/old Acoustic 360/361. About five minutes in I go all fuzztone and, well, you'll just have to hear for yourself how "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" sounds.

    If you like, don't be shy with a 'thumbs up.'

    Both yes. Thanks!

    I like your demo for Bass Club Chicago, particularly the walking part... and I've been learning from it too!

    I saw a bass, flame maple tops and back, quilted maple core. I wonder how that sounds.

    I havent changed the strings on my 5TN in over a year, and that bass still sounds killer.

    I'm this close to buying a new BSR5TN. Anybody here have one they'd like to sell me instead? :D

    You snooze you lose I guess.

    I still think was a great deal for a brand new one you had lined up. Good news is they do show up at least once a month somewhere.

    I thought you had 3?

    How does your new recent purchase compare to your Smiths?

    I have 3 Smiths, but my 5TN is something I can't part with. The Smith, MTD, and Fodera all have completely different sounds. The Smith is a Smith. The Fodera has a more traditional bass sound, and the MTD sounds more hifi. All great basses. Each one is better than the next in their own way.

    Thanks. I have been a Smith player since 89 and now in the market for the same brand you just purchased. Really I am looking for a bass that is the quality and sound of my Smith but with a more comfortable ergonomic body. I have an 89 BT which I love to death but it not the most comfortable bass playing in standing position. When you roll off the tone on your Fodera do you get close to the Smith tone?
