hey guys, im usually not in the DB half of talkbass but i felt like i should give a shout-out. please check out mark deutsch and his instrument, the bazantar. the easiest way i can describe it is a cross between a sitar and a DB. absolutely beautiful playing, he currently has one album out entitled "fool." im not a spokesperson for the guy, i just think that i should spread the word (hmm i wonder if he has a profile on TB ). go to http://www.bazantar.com to hear some sound samples and learn more about him.
