    That's cool, I just thought maybe you played like it was a regular 4 string bass, but then use a slide for some of that Mark Sandman 5th intervallic slide bass stuff.

    I was thinking about doing E-F, especially for learning and transcribing horn parts. I just need a low B.

    yeah, I have been talking to Brian at the Low End about a 34inch scale 19mm spaced 24 fret 7 with Maple board and ash body... Maybe a green to dark purple burst...

  5. To anyone in the club: What is your tuning and favorite style to play on the extended range bass?

    I tune my 8 strings, B E A D G C F Bb. And I have no favorite style that I use on it. Pretty much every style that I use on my none ERB's I utilize on my 8's.

    I have the low F#-F on my 8-string. Truthfully, I don't use the low F# as much as I should (mostly only for the occasional Bb or A), but I think with some new pickups that have increased low-end response, I will use it much more often.

    Style wise, I play it with everything. Played it out a few times with the old hard rock/metal band; I've played it in jazz.

    Hi guys, been lookin' for a club with extended range basses, particularily 6 stringers.
    So here's my beloved Yamaha TRB6II from '98. Got it for 765USD which is insanely cheap for that kind of bass here in Denmark. A great bargain, that gave me the best bass i have ever owned so far:

  13. Hey guys, I already have a number, I had a 6 string a while back but sold it. I have been Regretting it ever since, so yesterday I worked a trade for this SR506! It plays like a dream and is lightweight, I have a feeling it might become my number one player :cool:

    Sorry for the delayed post, I'm in the middle of moving into a new home so things have been a bit confusing lately. Another week or so and it'll be back to quasi-normal ;)

    My new Zon Vinny VB-6.

    Swamp ash, no top, natural matte finish. Unlined phenowood board, composite neck.

    Series-single-parallel switch for each radiused Bartolini pickup, a 3 band EQ with push-pull mid-freq selector (250/800Hz). The new hipshot headless mounting system in black completes the bass.

    I'm already member #026.
     
  17. My recently ERB acquired Hanewinckel 6. It is really sweet and she can get nasty too.
