anyone know anything about Belgian bridges, I'm trying to make my bass bright and quick.
They're okay, except the syprup and whipped cream are a bit messy.
Forget the bridges and go straight for the beer.
These guys have Humorroids...but seriously, folks...take my wife...
A "Belgian" bass bridge has a high arch and is useful on a bass with a high bridge. The high arch allows you to cut a more pleasing bridge shape and keeps the mass down, usually a good thing. You won't know if it helps till you do it.
bright and quick w/a bow? or bright and quick w/pizz?
gosh, I hadn't thought about that. I am pretty much doing both, I kind of intended this to be interchangeable, with real low action to try to do some solo recitals, but if it was quick with pizz, that is mostly what I do.
I guess I am a jazz player (just gave up on the symphony thing- so many aren't going to be here long) but I really think Renaud Garcia-fons and Rabbath are awesome, and want to play bach stuff and have the ultimate goal of playing a bowed bass solo where no one in the room even thinks about Paul Chambers- more like a horn player.
So, I guess as bright as I can get for both, but I still have to lay it down, but I could change out bridges whenever.
how's that for no answer?
