Looks like Surf rather than Seafoam on my laptop, but whatever, that's a beaut!
Low Brass and Bass are my happy place. Was a pro trombonist for 10 years - never got the tuba bug, but am sometimes channeling tuba with certain bass grooves.
Greetings to all, I see a mango bass, but I have a question, which is that the tone produced by the spruce core wood in a bass
I started as an Airbass player as well (Tuba Bb, C, & F)
Or, going waaay back, Milt "The Judge" Hinton. R.I.P.
I'LL ALLOW IT! lol
I started on tenor horn at 10yo then baritone and on to euphonium at 14yo before taking up bass.
My Dad played bass (G) trombone. In the DNA.
Takeaway from recent days:
More of us than I thought: 'I really like these low-toned brass instruments, but I think I want the really big fat notes'.
Enter Electric Bass through a good sized rig. Ain't no going back now.
Hey! Another Baritone Horn player out there...I started on trumpet at 9, baritone at 12 and electric bass at 16 after hearing Rush’s 2112!!!
I was destined for the bass clef. Started on trombone in the 5th grade (had to pick an instrument), my parents bought me my first bass, a Framus TV Star hollow body, when I was 14. They couldn't afford an amp, so I unplugged the bass pedals from the family Thomas organ, and wired up an RCA to 1/4 cable to plug in. Sounded good to my 14yo ears.
It's been a long strange trip via Conn (the trombone) Fender, Steinberger, Parker and many more. Great to have arrived in the land of Sadowsky (at age 60!)
No brass for me. Forced to take piano lessons from age 6 and like so many, foolishly quit at 12. Heard Peter Cetera, Bob Babbitt, James Jamerson, David Hood, Duck Dunn, Carol Kaye, Lee Sklar (and many others who made pant legs flap). Decided at 15 to become a bass player. Waited 40 years, then did. Got a bass and a teacher. Then a bunch more: Fender, Lakland, G&L. Many nice instruments, none of them perfect. Many hours of practice, very far from perfect!
Now I’ve arrived at Sadowsky. Ahhhh. It really does help when the bass plays itself.
And what do I do with all the rest of the basses?
Trombone and baritone here as well starting in 5th grade. Love the low brass connection! Spit valves rule. Or they did when you sat behind the row of clarinets.
Anyone has a German Sadowsky yet?
I’ve only seen a few appear in shops via Reverb over the past few months. I noticed they’re available to order on the Warwick Distribution page, categorized by Sadowsky Custom Shop, MasterBuilt, MetroLine, and Metro Express.
I have one on order, 5 string metroline PJ. Hopefully by end of September?
I played Tuba in High School! In college, I was a last-minute fill-in when the bass drum and Chinese Gong player quit the orchestra! I also made myself a washtub bass back in the day!
German Sadowsky production should begin to appear at dealers in September.
A Sadowsky washtub bass, WOW
Will the US dealers have strings around the same time as well?
