    My cello.

    Failing that, it would have to be my Rickenbacker.

    I voted other, the two nicest fretless basses I've played were a Carvin custom and a Warwick corvette. Both sounded amazing...
  15. I would also say my cello...

    My Warwick 'vette...sounds awesome:)
  17. I like the Wal tone, but prefer the Jaco Jazz tone. I haven't tried several of these so I shouldn't really have voted. Having said that I expect that I would prefer Rob Allen mouse but I've never even seen one in the flesh.

    I like mine... ;)


    Human Base Daily 5

    That said, blowinblue's Ken Lawrence ChamberBass is awsome... played one in a shop for a good while. Loved it, couldn't afford it....
  19. My current Yamaha TRB 1005 is very nice, but I used to have a Westone Thunder 3b that was lovely.



    Oddly enough, this picture, which is of my bass & I took it in my back yard at the time, appears as an example in the Westone Forums.

  20. Carvin.


    And maybe one day a Clement.

  21. That's lovely ^ that is!!!!
