    Hi all TBers,

    I'll be going at the Frankfurt MusikMesse on march (7 to 9th).

    As promised, I'll try to take as much pics as it will be possible and then make a report for you to see what's going on here in Europe :D

    Please let me know if I can provide some BASS related info (no amp or effect please as I'm not very knoledgeable on those).

    I can also offer you to make some quick interviews of the builders who will be there...

    Maybe a mod could make this thread a "sticky" ?

    Peace, JP

    Thats`s great news JP!
    Pics from any "Fender style" Hot-wire, Marleaux, or Overwater basses would be appreciated.
    Only wish I could go there myself :(

    Will you be having a stand to show off your basses or are you just looking around?

    Sounds a great offer you are giving, I would like to hear what any of the custom builders are doing, as the big boys have enough publicity as it is.

    Yea, Id like to see some Overwater pictures. Any info on these basses would be nice too. I hear many good things about them, but never actually seen one in a store. Thanks JP.
  5. Bring me back a Ritter. A Jupiter model 5 string in marble finish please, but I'm really not that picky.
  6. Can you find out if BassLab basses play as good as they look?

    Keep the questions coming!

    Peace, JP

    i'd love to hear your comments on the Markbass amps they will be located at booth n° 4.0 B90

  9. Apart from HotWire, Marleaux and all the others already mentioned, I'd like to see what Human Base, Schack and BassLines have been up to lately. Oh, and Sei as well, if mr. Petersen will be present.

    @MoltarRocks: A little Pre-Musikmesse-Info...
    The Basslab basses sound great and are played easily (I played them on the last 2 Musikmessen)! For me they weigh too less, I prefer heavy-weight-wood-Basses.

    Check out www.lefay.de for really great german basses! :) A Lefay Pangton 5-String is my dream... And Fretless-Players will love the Remington-Bass... Btw. Lefay builds the PUs for Basslab.

    Greetings from Germany! :)

    P.S. I hope my english isn't too bad! ;-)

    LBB, I like your taste in Le Fays :cool:

    Too bad I probably won't make it to MM this year.

    This means there is still a chance for you to come!!

    Come on Bro' I'm sure you can do it!

    Peace, JP

    I'd appriciate any info what the European amplification manufacturers (Ashdown, EBS, Glockenklang for example) are up to, especially on stand-alone cabs, portable cabs, 12"-equipped cabs and 300-500w heads.

    Amp pics are welcome too! Oh, and if you see Esh basses, give them a go and snatch couple close-range pics for me, will ya?
  15. How about Moscato, and another vote for Basslab.

  16. Bjorn (i'm not sure how to make the umlaut),

    Thanks for information. Has anyone seen one of these in California? I'm interested in trying one (either Basslab or LeFay)

    I know what you mean about the materials. I have both wood and luthite basses. The luthite ones are very light weight. I think you meant to say "weigh too little" - but we'll only give you 5 points off for that one - you still get an "A" in English. I'd certainly fail German!

    Jean-Luc (Moscato) probably won't be at the MM. I got to check with him on the phone though!

    Please limit your question to BASSES...;)

    Unless I see something completly new and spectacular, I won't investigate any amp/effects booth! I want to concentrate on basses :D

    Peace, JP

    Another vote for Jens Ritter, and I would be interested in Jerzy Drozd also (especially the neck-throughs).
    Both might be interesting for an interview too... but first pictures and comments on sound and playability! (how different do the 24 and 28 fret models of jerzy play? Is it still comfortable to slap on the 28frets?)

    Have fun, and thanks already!
