Check this bass out! I think it is insane looking!
Nope. Not for me. Probably sounds good though.
Way too organic looking.
Unquestionably. Hope it doesn't end up in the hands of some rich, amateur dinker. That beautiful instrument belongs with a working pro who possesses serious chops and can appreciate it and put it to good use playing music in public.
Yep, probably got squirrels living in it.
Ah, the KL Chamberbrase. Awesome piece of art.
I'd love to meet one.
Yeah - check out all the other basses at that place. They have quite a selection.
I would never be able to use half of the neck on that thing cuz of that horn running up the neck.
Other than being hard to play... I bet it is heavier than hell. Whoever buys that thing will need a back brace. At least they will be sport'n wood.(snicker*snicker)
Proof that you can have too much of a good thing.
and to think Jaco played a beat up Fender...
What kind of crack are you smoking?
swamp ash -> very light
chambered body -> even lighter
no metal bridge -> at least a pound off
Those together more than make up for the extra wood under the top horn.
I've never seen a weight listed for a Chamberbrase, but I'd guess this one's under 9 pounds.
I asked the owner of Bass Alone about this exact bass. It used to be his, and he swore he wouldn't sell it, then got an incredible offer he couldn't refuse, by a player that was supposedly quite capable of operating this fine piece of art.
And, it's supposedly as "light as a feather"
Oh, you mean a guy like Fieldy?
I believe he used the words "appreciate it"
I think that disqualitfies Feildy...who is famous for not practicing and looking for a bass that matches his outfit...
I think they're a bit smaller than they look, too.
I saw Ken posing with one, and it was much smaller than I expected.
hope it's OK to attach this pic, not sure who snapped it...
Here are some more related pics. I tried out one of his chambered basses. They play and sound great! Ken is a top-notch luthier and a pretty cool guy from what I could tell.
With sunglasses on he could probably pass for Geddy Lee.
Will someone please submit one of those photos to mulletsgalore.com?
those bass are not for me. i just dont like the look
Unless you used proper technique and stopped wrapping your thumb around the neck.
Those things are horribly ugly!! The headstock looks like a squid and the top "brase" thingy seems really distracting and the bridge/tailpiece....... How much for that thing? I'd buy a Kia and a Fender before I bought that thing! Hope I didn't offend anyone, just.........UUUUUUGGGGH!
He does use nice wood, though
