Discussion in 'Bassists [BG]' started by tyburn, Feb 23, 2001.


  1. i was bored so decided to start this thread,, how big r your hands

    i was sittign here at the computer and noticed a ruler so i measured diagonally from the tip of my thumb to the end of my little finger( pinky)

    it's exactly 25cm fully stretched acroos the palm of my hand
     
  2. From thumb to pinkie, about 9". That's also how I measure up in other places :D
    Gotta be the Swedish-made penis pump.
     
  3. Wow! That's a pretty long nose you got there. :)

  6. Left 25 cm.

    Right 24.5 cm.

    If only I were so endowed in other places. Maybe I should get one of JT's basses to compensate :D:D:D:D:D

    Hmmm...I did a thorough measurement:

    Vertical (wristbone to tip of middle finger): about 6 inches

    Horizontal (thumb to pinky, stretched as far as possible): about 7 inches

    As for other measurements...well...er...I'm not a man. :p

  11. yeah i do, it's a pain in the wallet,, i'm a 14 over here,, so 15 to u guys,, not exceptionally wide

    i'm like 6'5 and half / 6'6"

    6'6" in the morning ( can't get through the door without ducking ,, actually i'm surprised i haven't had to go for a cat scan (lol)

    please feel sorry fro me i'm not 19 until june still growing , i think

    i'd just like to say though,that being taller doesn't make u a better bass player,, i wish i was smaller so that my J didn't look so small standing up

    tyburn / stu You probably already know this, but ==> http://www.newbalance.co.uk/

    They have sneaks and "classics" (dress/casuals) up to size 20 (US) in some
    cases. Most go up to 16 EEEE. Also, be sure to check out that "SL-1" / "SL-2"
    business. SL-2's have a bigger toebox. Check the dealer locator. Here's a UK
    online store ==> http://www.sportsshoes.com/ssu-cgi/newbalance/web_store.cgi
    (sneaks only).
     
  14. yeah i do,, well u have to don't u,, !!

    i've got number of places where i get shoes from,, actually i have a very good sports shop here where i get trainers from , u go in and u can have nearly anythining in my size for a good price

    thankfully i'm ok with clothes,, i'm only an XL which is big to some but for my height it's ok

    i've got long arms though which can be a problem ,, aswell as being problematic when playing
