Yearly Tune Up

Discussion in 'Bass Humor [DB]' started by Mike Goodbar, Jul 5, 2002.


  1. Not a joke, but this struck me as funny:

    I bought a hybrid Christopher last April, and my Engelhardt has not been removed from its case since then, confined to corner of my basement.

    Yesterday, I had an outside gig, and I decided to bring the Engelhardt to avoid any potential damage to my Chrissie due to the 90-degree+ heat and threat of rain.

    I took the Ol' Engel out of its bag and asked for a tuning note, expecting the worst. I found that it was still perfectly in tune since the last time I'd played it!
