Have anyone of you played a bass with this wacky bridge ???? It has 2 whammy bar !!!!
So how do you play with all the ironmongery in the way?
Seriously if one wanted to wham a bass the option of where the arm went could be useful.
Each bar controls two strings, so you can whammy the lows but keep the highs normal, or vice-versa.
why would you want to control the strings differently?
also, you go out of tune real bad with those things andi hear you break strings a lot
If your strings are properly stretched, and you aren't bending them up a fifth, then they shouldn't break too often. Going out of tune is the same, but they will go out of tune more than a bass with a fixed bridge.
Very cool invention...I just can't imagine finding a use for me.
Who makes it? What's the price?
Doh missed that. You could drone a low string and wham frenzy the upper strings hmmm
There used to be a guy in town...Barry Dunaway, used to play with Malmsteen. He had one of those things and what HE was capable of with it...was amazing. Pretty much eliminates the need for a fretless and so much more.
Its easier if you have 3 or 4 hands...imagine slapping while whamming.....
I guess, the next wicked invention will be a foot controlled whammy bass bridge or flexible neck that allow us to do Billy Sheehan's neck bend easily using only a fingertip
It's crazy world we live....
So, how about just using a Whammy Pedal??
