Anyone need a 28-string bass bridge?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Lokire, May 7, 2006.


  1. No, but that'll make for one hell of a zither.
     
  2. I have a coffee table that would fit. I'd still it tune drop D.

    With a 19mm string spacing that would make a 20 inch plus wide fretboard! :eek:

    Well, you wouldn't have to worry about those people who are like "I need a massive bridge to help my sustain and tone" with this baby...The question is, will your shoulders hold up the tone? (Er, I mean the mass :D)

    circle of 4ths twice, most likely cause that's what I'd be expecting.

  8. Imagine stringing your bass with this many strings!
     
  9. Now you've done it. Within a year there will be at least 3 people here with 28 string custom built basses. One will be a doubleneck.

    the number of strings aside, that's a fabulous bridge saddle design. the 7 string bridge looks t3h s3ksy.

    "Compilation midway. * This mechanic "SPIRIT" can do also such a thing, possibility it is high, any present things the conspirators are the tail piece which is different. If you could associate from the wooden toy on NO.1 and the right, you thought and published the picture if, but the bridge and the mover are inserted steadily in the shaft, it can develop in one for many chords. However, unless stay is provided on the middle, the shaft bends"

    the point wasn't to make a 28 string bass bridge, the point was to illustrate how the design was flexible to meet any number of strings. btw, the picture he refers to is of an abacus - he's comparing how the device is assembled to how an abacus is put together.

    move along ERB-haters, nothing to see here. :eyebrow:

    btw, here chords means strings (as our euro friends will be aware).

    Me, I'd take the fine-tuners off. You've never have time to play.
