    A certain Canadian based Theatrical/Circus Company called from Montreal- they are looking at yours truly to perhaps be the bassist in a new Vegas production... the gig is not mine yet- they needed me to play some upright- so i HAD to go and get this, or be out of the game... so far so good! i love this thing.. HUGE tone.
    Very cool and easier to play than i anticipated.
    So wish me luck and intonation!!

    Sweet Adrian!

    That's just about as compact as they get. What does one of those weigh?

    Good luck on the gig man!

    im sure they do- but more importantly, its about as steady a gig as you can have-- they rule the Vegas entertaiment scene and they run forever- i hope im not jinxing myself here.. i definitely do not yet have the gig- but it sems close. I am a huge fan and it would be my dream to get this..i have a lot of people praying for this !!

    Good luck on the gig!

    I played on of those at Bass Central & it was real cool. And you don't have to buy a minivan to lug it around!

    Funny Marty. No, no. I'm staying in the bass guitar forum. I don't have a DB nor am I expecting to purchase one soon.

    I've had one of these for about a year now - although mine is 5 string with piezos only - but I get loads of compliments about the tone and everybody seems to like the sound.

    I have found it easier to play basslines than I thought it would be, although it has got me thinking more like a DBer and using more open strings etc. I really like playing simpler lines on it - letting the notes ring fully and maybe playing one note per bar -whereas on BG I would be muting and playing more notes.

    But I have found it much harder to improvise solos, coming from BG - my thought processes want to go along, rather than up and down!! ;)
     
  15. Bon Chance Adrian! (seems appropo, given the gig)

    Cool NS, BTW :cool:

    Adrian, I love mine, it's become my "if you can only bring ONE bass" bass.

    Awesome tone, wonderful playability, and cool looks - what more can ya ask for?

    ;)

    ...good luck on the Cirque gig!

    Adrian, I will say a prayer for you bud, because that would be the mother of all gigs. I've been to just about every one of their shows and everytime I leave I feel amazed. I really hope you get this gig because the music always is superb at these shows. :)
