    Hello dudes and dudettes!

    My first report from NAMM:

    Ned Steinberger has a new line of headless basses at NS Design. Very, very cool, with a great piezo system.

    Andy Fuchs at Fuchs Audio has a 500, 1000 and now a 2000W tube bass amp. 2000? Super!

    The single cut Brubaker Brute is incredible. Really.

    I'll post pics when I can.

  2. A 2000w tube amp? :eek:
    Will a mortgage on your house pay for retubing it in a few years time? :D
     
  3. Would be very interested in checking out a new Steinberger 5 string if it's made in the US like the originals...

    The power amp stage of those are solid state. Still loud, but...

    "The power amp stage is a fully protected state of the art design featuring Class-D "one Cycle" Digital Switch Mode Technology amplifier stage, with a conventional transformer based power supply."

    Sounds interesting. I don't see anything on their website yet, unless I'm missing it, so pics would be cool.

    Thanks!
