    Got 30Hz? :D

    Me, my fretless Hanewinckel, and RMC piezo pickups. No bass boost. For best results, use good headphones or a real subwoofer. Watch the volume though. . . ;)

    That's me muting all the strings but the low B, then lightly thumping my fist on the body of the bass. As that builds in intensity I stop muting the other strings with my left hand, and use it to pound on the back of the neck a little. I'm not at all hitting the bass hard, believe me I wouldn't be rough with this thing :), just enough to get the strings moving.

    If I do this through my Acme cab, it sounds pretty much just like that. If I keep it quiet and subtle, people think a big truck has pulled up outside or something.

    Hmm. It's just a normal attachment . . . should be able to right-click and "save as". Oh well. It's not that exciting. :)

    The sub on my comp really suck to tell you the truth. Most of it was cut.

    Maybe Ill hook up my QSC and my 210XST to my comp and listen to it sometime.
