    Have you guys seen or tried these beauties?

    High end basses with piano hammers attached. Seems pretty wild. Neuser is partly Finnish company and I'm a finn myself but I've yet to see one of those..

    I bet they sound .. um .. untraditional :)

  2. Yeah, they've been around awhile.

    The number of strings shall not be limited to four, nor five, however, the keys & hammers will be of equal value. The keys & hammers will not be greater, nor will they be lesser than the number of strings on the bass. Should the number of strings be four, then there will be four keys and four hammers. Not five, nor six, but four.

    Seriously that sounds... neat.

    I always thought it would be really cool to try one of these. But I imagine there may never be one in the US.

    Count the strings? Certainly. One. Two. Five. (Three, sir!) Oh, yes. Three...
