    That might possibly be the most terrifying instrument ever.

    English at bottom of page.

    Questions come to mind:
    • At those frequencies do you bother to tune? If so, how do you reach the pegs 11 feet off the floor?
    • How do you MOVE the thing?
    • How do you INSURE the thing?
    • Will a Realist pick-up work?

    I suppose the Pacific Rim is bringing one to market ...

    Neato, thanks for the link! It seems they updated their website and took new photos. Nice.

    His bow-grip reminds me of the grip needed for Heitbrink's ironwood bows....

    It looks like it's on a rolling platform. You can see in the photos that the same platform in the big room is also used on stage.

    The tuners are in the tailpiece. :)

    It's all lever actuated! Like a gigantic bass-puppet!

    I vote we now refer to this instrument as a 'bass-puppet'. Maybe?

    I bet he'll still get asked 'Is that a cello?'

    Keyboard player says, 'Bloody fixer's let me down again. I asked for bass and drums.'

    I'll stop now.

    That reminds me of the time I was loading in on a gig and someone saw my bass and said, "Hey, look, it's an oboe!"
     
  10. Would that be considered a 7/4????

    Imagine trying to do a bebop solo on that bass. I don't know which would happen first: a lever breaks or your right hand falls off. :ninja:

    Well, one nice lady referred to my Azola EUB as a "Viola on a Stick". Could be the highest/lowest compliment a viola player has ever recieved.

    I wonder how much the overweight charges are when you decide to take the thing on a plane.
