    originally the double bass only had 3 strings, I think it may have been the French that added the 4th string, might have been the Germans, anyway what the heck is the scale on one of the monsters ?

    The octabass sounds terrible. Almost like unwanted noise under the beautiful normal bass.

    The only reason most bassists don't play and own one of these behemoths is that very few of us own flat bed trucks. Plus strings are a bitch to find.
