    Got a new bass today. It's a new solid carved 3/4 german bass and it was dealt (and perhaps built?) by GEWA. It sounds great with a rich even tone all over the instrument. It looks real cool too which is a plus.
    So far very happy with it :)

    Taken with my crappy webcam, this will give you an idea what color it is atleast. If anyone is interested I might attempt to take more ...

    Are those violin corners?

    Looks nice (from what I can see). Congrats again.

    Thanks man. Yeah they sure are Pacman. The whole thing looks like a fiddle x20. I'll try to post an example of what it sounds like....Or rather what my crappy *ss sounds playing it ;)

    Welcome to the dark side. Forever will it dominate your destiny.
     
  7. Pacman you hit the Nail on the Head. When I took the Hook a few years ago I had no idea what I had gotten myself into. I love the Double Bass. The "Dang Thang" like...calls to me from the corner of the room...uhhh..uh...I need help ;)
