ever seen a bass like this????
what are those frets for?
i do believei ts for Microtonal player (i think thats the word)
dear lord that is rather weird
^ I agree one hundred twelve percent. Do i smell a ***?
maybe it was just for fun? idk
theres the previous thread about micro tonal bassists
On the website that picture came from, next to the pic it says "Just Intonation". Anyone know what this is all about?
Also... Here's another "unique" Warwick from that same site:
Is it playable?
what´s their purpose? are they built for people with short willys? like : "Ay , I gotta muchos frettos in my basso"
no, it provides more tones per octave. read the link i posted, there is a lot of info in there....
i can´t believe anyone can play that thing
i´d like to hear a soundsample of those basses played. i looks quite interesting , haven´t had any luck on google yet ....
It's not microtonal, it is fretted that way for just intonation.
Most western music uses a twelve tone equal tempered scale, which helped solve problems in manufacturing keyboard instruments in the 16th, 17th, and 18th century,
Here is an informative article: http://www.justintonation.net/whatisji.html
Why wouldn't somebody be able to play it?
It looks like hell to play still...
It's actually made for Carney folk, small hands, smell like cabbage.
but i still don't understand the purpose.
I mean, it's still a Thumb right?
Just intonation could easily be done on a fretless I imagine.
I wonder how you would score the music written this way.
