  1. actually this is the lightest bass Bill has ever made for me... I'm just blown away! haven't put 'er on a scale yet but I'd put the weight in under 10 pounds if I had to guess. as always, she balances perfectly so there's no sense of weight... AWESOME!

    and I used to play with a volume pedal but I haven't had one since the old one was swallowed by Mother Nature. don't know if I'll get another.

    I can tell you that this baby has an outrageous fingerstyle sound. once the strings break in and I've had a bit more time playing her, I think there will be a bit more growl and a bit less in the way of fangs.

    overall my initial impression is just... staggeringly happy!!

    so between songs you just mute with your hands? Man, I love the convenience of being able to "turn the bass off" between songs.

    congrats! the way it should be!!! :)

    Thanks, Stew. We played a 35-minute set with 4 originals and a Talking Heads cover. It went by in what seemed like an instant.

    I've never played the 810 Fridge before in a big room -- holy cow is it a different experience when you don't have as many standing bass waves as in the practice room. Wow. I gotta do that again.
  6. oh, you will! and you'll have a ton of fun... and a ton of great stories!

  16. words do not accurately convey it!

  17. This is the only pic I could find of me playing, at least it's a recent one:
    From that view, it almost looks like I'm playing guitar...

    I'll see if I can get any pics when I play doublebass too.
  18. great shot!
