Well, I finally put an extension on my bass. Today was the first time I have played the bass in almost two weeks and it sounds great! The whole bass seems better. However the A strings seems slightly less responsive...but that may be because I have not played it. I got the extension from John Michael Smith in St Paul. If any one in the area is considering one I definately would recommend him. I was somewhat anxious about how it was going to turn out because my bass is not one of those massive thundering instruments....but it is now. I was very impressed with the power and depth. It is currently set up with a helicore heavy string and it sounds fabulous. I might try a flexocor just for some more depth and darkness...but I am not sure I will have to. Anway perhaps I will post pics if enough are interested.
