....can you do that? Modified inside so you can put the soundpost somewhere? I'm rather new with DB's so I don't really know. Looks interesting though, thanks for posting.
That'd certainly be quite the effort to play...also, did anyone else notice the location? "Sunny Manitoba?" Sunny? Yeah, alright.
Could play it on one of those dualing piano bars. Oh yeah, I can see it all coming together now.
Somehow it seems strangely erotic.
Reminds me of that "lovers' toilet" skit on SNL from years back...
Can you imagine the string combo discussion threads for this instrument?
"well, I use a E and A mettiel, a D Dominant and a G OLIV on the male side, but I'm thinking of trying Compas 180s on the female side, but I was wondering if the tension would be imbalanced with a LaBella G on one side and...."
Ah, but you wouldn't need to find the Holy Grail of strings that does both pizz and arco. Now just need to find two sets of strings.
Excellent point! You could just spin it around when you pulled the bow out. I think this idea has legs.
I wonder just how small a car I could get it into?
Hummer sounds about right.
Or 2 Cooper Mini's fused together.
A Mini Cooper stretch limo. I haven't seen one of those yet. I saw a civic stretched out in Dallas a few years back.
I could just imagine trying to keep that thing in tune on an outside stage in the middle of July with the sun beating down on it...
Can you lean it into a wall?
I see they have it up on bricks - presumably the couple couldn't agree on how long the endpin should be - they must have been married!!
I would think Rabbath's method and an egg-pin would be kinda strange on a bass like that.
I saw a guitar from Breedlove that was built like this, 12-string on one side, flip it over and it's a sixer. The guy playing it looked thrilled that he'd only have to bring one guitar to gigs if he bought the thing.
Before breakfast we get the amount of sun Ontario gets. Except for this freakish winter, where it's way too warm because of the clouds that won't go away.
Seriously, if we had your latitude to go along with our sunshine, we'd be making the wine, not you guys!
Dude, freakish winter indeed. We're going to pay for it in March, though...best keep those carved basses wrapped in blankets, 'cause we're gonna freeze our, uh, "Canucks" right off.
