I will start.......Although I am very happy with my bass collection there are those special instruments that I have had the privilege (or curse) of playing over the years that are worth mentioning. Not worth mentioning is that fact that I cant afford any of them. ·Handmade bass by Andrew Stetson of the Cincinnati Bass Cellar. He had just finished this beautiful bass and actually let me play it. It has low end that would impress any suburban teenager with a Pinto full of woofers. ·Handmade bass by KC Strings owned by local jazz player. 7/8s body with ¾ string length. Large lower bouts. Powerful tone.
