Hyperbass plans?

Discussion in 'Ask Steve Lawson & Michael Manring' started by fretless4string, Jan 3, 2017.


  1. I would like to wish Michael all the best for 2017 and also ask a question. I remember seeing your ZON Hyperbass up close when you played at Pinnacle Music, Belleville. Considering how old it is and how much it has been played and gigged, the instrument has lasted amazingly well! However, I wondered if there were any plans to have Joe make you a new Hyperbass at some point in the future?

    Thanks for the New Year wishes, fretless4string! Right back at you...

    You're right about my old Hyperbass. She's been through a lot and some of the stories would probably make you cringe! She's holding up OK, but Joe and I don't want to press our luck, so we have another in the works at the moment. We're planning a few new features and hopefully I'll be able to show her off soon.
     
  3. And how is Junior holding up?

    He's hanging in there pretty well, thanks! He's due for a little minor maintenance, but other than that he's rockin'!
     
  5. I just re-watched the excellent Make Weird Music interview on the Zon MM Hyperbass and wondered if the new Hyperbass will be unveiled soon?
