Just installed my ramp. I haven't gig with it yet but like it so far.
How did you install it (double sided tape/screws/glue)?
double sided tape
To the install question: I got mine installed with mini-magnets, so I can remove it as needed. Pretty cool solution!
Did you make it yourself or buy it?
Looks great in any case. Better than many aftermarket ramps I have seen made for Foderas.
I like that solution as well! Great idea.
I've never used a ramp, however. Why do you folks find it beneficial?
Oh, and by the way, GREAT looking bass! What is it?
I had a local Luthier make it. He charge me 50 bucks. It's ebony and ebony is getting very expensive. I rest my thumb on it and sometimes can be a little aggressive,so I don't think magnets would hold it in place.
So you use it mainly as a thumbrest?
Does it serve any other purpose, such as to not let your finger tips pass too deeply into the strings as you play?
That's exactly it.
See this explanation on Gary Willis's site http://www.garywillis.com/pages/bass/bassmanual/theramp.html
That came out perfect! How can you tell? Because it looks like it belongs there. Nice!
You'd be surprised at how strong magnets can be. And you'll be surprised when your technique changes because of the ramp and you realize the inefficiency of your former aggressive technique.
The tape should hold fine! Mine hasn't moved in over a year.
Thanks very much. Very good info! I may give it a try on my bass.
Does anyone have a pic of a Pbass with a ramp?
That's correct. Plus, I also have a fixed thumbrest on it (from before I installed the ramp).
