    Sorry for the delay. Last week I had no band. Today I have 2. Sometimes it's feast or famine.

    As far as the sound, this is the most fanominal sounding bass I have ever played. It sustains forever and with the electronics package has extreme reaches into almost any sound you wanna make.
    I have never owned a 6 or 5 string before this, and it has been quite the experience.
    I bought this over Christmas for doing alternative rock, alot easier than tuning down.
    If you ever get a chance to play a brubaker, I highly recommend it, never heard of a negative experience yet.

    Kevin Brubaker is King if u ask me.

    Hey, come on out to Guam and lets jam.

    I didn't really mention the details in my original post, didn't think there would be much interest. I am flattered that there are inquiries, so here goes:

    S/N 99010 *10th bass of 1999*
    Ash body with a flamed maple top w/custom rootbeer finish. One piece quartersawn hard maple neck with wenge fingerboard.
    SeymourDuncan/Basslines active soap bar pickups/electronics And Hipshot hardware.
    The SeymourDuncan has a push/pull in the volume that they call their 'slap switch'. It puts a smiley face in the EQ, lowers the mids, deepens the tone slightly.

    I will try to take a better pic at the studio today and post it tonight.

    Esta,

    Thanks for the welcome. I've been on Guam for 20 yrs now and still don't know what they call me.
    Locals are called Guamanians, maybe I'm almost local by now.
    I know I promised more pics of the bass, just forgot the camera...........maybe tomorrow.
    I tried to download the 12 minute piece from your post, couldn't access it after the download???
    Seems I don't have the right player installed.
    Any hints?
    More later..........................

    it's an mp3, windows player should play it fine. real jukebox also plays mp3s. let me know if it doesn't work.
     
  12. Had the same problem with Windows media player but later discovered that WinAmp plays it. Why don't you try it?

    Hope it helps..
    Cheers

    *sigh* I knew this day would come
    Sorry Idiezman, I am wayyyyy to intimidated to put up a sound byte of me playing.
    I have been out of the business for 20 yrs and just recently got back in. Don't have the chops to show off. It's interesting though, things have changed so much in that time. This is the reason for the Brubacker, everything is tuned down now. I have an alternative rock band going with my 15 yr old son and the rest in their mid 20's. I'm the only old fart. I like to play this stuff though, really interesting and rule breaking in a way. We do POD, Bush, Hoobastank, etc. Keeps my kid happy.
    I also have a Classic Rock band with peeps a little older, we formed on a whim when I invited them over to my studio to 'jam' *only*........... well, one thing lead to another and after playing for only two hours we were booked for a gig in a club. Talk about baptism by fire? I may post something at a later date , but in reality.........I am just a straight cover guy, no shoe. Hey, come on over to paradise and you can play me something..........hows that? If you're interested in my 'studio' I can send you some pics. It's been my obsession these last couple of months. I built it on the premise of being able to suppy FOH & Backline to other bands on island. A setup like that can get you $1500 a day here. Now that I am playing though, those things are on hold.
    I have all Mackie active PA, makes for a really solid FOH setup, use 4 mackies for monitors too :) they are da kine. Hey...........you got me rambling, sorry.
