    sweet adrian!

    i've perused your site a good few times. drooling over that soundclip was one of the deciding factors for me.

    the bass i'm expecting is ebony colored w/ wenge fingerboard, can't wait!

    . grendels were Czech made MTDs- they were awesome- i say were because they no longer make them- they have been replaced by a very similar Korean Saratoga-
    i had these 2 for a while- but they were sold- the sound is awesome- aggressive and punchy- great slappers- i miss mine. But i cant keep them all-
    Right now. what do i own?
    well, an MTD 535 that im selling-

    Okay I feel dumb, but I can't find the soundclips. I found the ones for the Kingston and the Heir, but not the Grendel. Little help?
