Has anyone played one of these?
wow, I checked out the video - sounds like an old Kramer - 13lbs - too much and if you read the FAQ it sounds like it could be dangerous - rip the carpet, maim the dog, get picked up by the NSA/TSA - yikes - certainly not wowed by it - one man's opinion.
i think the least they could have done was get a decent bass player for the ad..kinda looked like a guitarist that picked up the bass that day and recorded it
For your viewing pleasure.
That thing hurts.
Everyone knows Phaedrus eventually went insane..
Why not aluminum? Would that be too unstable for this? onlinemetals.com has some aluminum flat bar for $13 for a 48" length of .375" x 2". It would also only be about 4 lbs. This is interesting.
Uh...."Redefining "Big Balls"".....uh..........
"Sleek Monolithic Compact Design" Isnt' that a contradiction in terms?
And, yes; time for a different video with using a bass player this time...
Why not get a real fretless bass that won't kill your back?
Didn't Steinberger have a fretless at one time? 4 lbs. or something? Made of carbon fiber?
Probably. But it also cost close to $2k.
I agree. I don't understand it when it weighs 3+ lbs more than the average bass. Now, at 4 lbs, that may be entirely different. I guess a steinberger spirit would fit the bill as well (< $300).
Where does the strap go?
as a welder/fabricator i can tell you that for the weight issue it would be perfect.
On the other hand, aluminum dilated/retract more and also diferently then plain steel. I guess they should have used other alloys such as the ones used in Aerospace (excluding aluminum of course)
Beryllium would be a good choice, appart from the price. Beryllium is lightweight, rigid, corrosion-resistant, steel-gray metal. Used as aerospace structural material, and as moderators and reflectors in nuclear reactors. Alloyed with Copper (Cu) for use in springs and electrical contacts.
I agree...i don't see anything "re-defining" at all in that bass. you can just get an essex fretless and pop an EMG pup in there, and you can have that same sound.
Dudes.... I played that bass.
Most uncomfortable thing ever, the entire time you think the thing is gonna fall and break, and when it doesn't the crappy tone makes you wanna put it down.
That looks like a piece of junk, and it sounds worse than it looks.
Hey, the ONLY dealer these guys have is the music place down the street from my dad's office.
