    No, but I have been "seated" with my bass before.

    (Looking for that brown note to help ease the transition, of course)

    Have you ever wanted to get electrocuted? I have not.

    And I havent unplugged either. Rusty basses aren't THAT cool.

    I think someone should take their bass into a bathtub and see if it sounds good - you never know it could be the best sound ever. The water would carry the low frequencies realy well. And if you wanted to take this further you could try it in the sea and see if you can attract whales.

    Actually, yes, yes I have. I was at a friend's apartment with my Roscoe during a storm. The tornado sirens started to sound and the wind starting majorly kicking, so we did as recommended, and jumped into the bathtub. I took my bass, he took one of his guitars. We hunkered down with our instruments for a few moments, but the tornado was a few miles away so the precautions were for naught. Better safe than sorry, though!

  16. Everyone knows you get the best tone in vintage clawfoot tubs. The chemicals used in the ceramic coating process let the tone iron "breath" thus reducing loss of vibration.

    Bored today, are we?


  18. Nope.

    Little rubber ducky. Okay.

    Bass made of wood and metal where moisture can wreak havoc. Not okay.

    I usually prefer to take mine into the shower... :smug:

    Actually, I've taken my bass into the bathroom many times while watching my toddler finish her bath, a task which can sometimes seem interminable without a bass!

    Every good bass should come with a sticker that says "In case of tornado, take into bathtub (no water please)"
