got to play a Conklin 7 today!

  1. I have seen pics of these things but finally got the chance to take one for a little test drive today. there was a jazz/funk fusion group putting on a show at school today and the bass player had a conklin 7. I got there for the last 3 songs and afterward the band was hanging out so I walked up and talked with the bass player some and said how I played bass too and really liked the conklins. so he let me plug in a play it a little at a low volume. it was very sweet. anyhow it played like butter and was a lot easier to handle than I had thought. and the tone was awesome. I don't think a 7 string would be for me at this point but I wouldn't rule it out. just thought I'd share.
  2. What I would give to just try one out, let alone own one. My next bass is definently (sp?) going to be a Conklin Groove Tools 7. Congrats on getting to fool around on it!
