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.

Who said you need so many strings?

    That looks really cool. I'd try it.

    Seriously though, that makes my inner-minimalist very happy indeed!

    Yeah well, it would be a fun project building it, then you'd play it a couple of times and it would make a great conversation starter, and finally it would end up in a closet or on eBay. Just keeping it real now. ;)

    Let's face it: What he played in the video is what some guys play all night. Less is more.

    That's rather fun looking! Reminds me of when I was a lot younger, myself and a couple of the guys out the band I was in used to get together, drink beer, smoke cheap cigars and play skiffle for the fun of it. This looks like an electric version of the tea-chest bass I made.

    A single string costs almost as much as a set. No advantage there. Otherwise, it's pretty cool!

    A wash tub bass with a piezo is another way to go too!

    You could put an endpin on it and play it like an upright.
