Any extended range bass players here?

Hey guys,

Anyone play ERB here? I'm thinking 8 strings plus?

Re: Any extended range bass players here?

I have an 8 string bass...

But it is arranged in octaves, like a 12 string guitar is.

I also have a 6 string bass. But it is a bass guitar with the extra B and E like a guitar but lower...

Regards


Ian

Hey Ian.
I haven't heard a coursed string bass before. Ill check that out on YT.

Your 6 string setup sounds pretty interesting actually. Maybe we can meet up one evening and talk?

Shergold basses from the 70s...

(I'm moderator of the owners forum - currently offline due to a hack attack but back soon)

Unfortunately, I have them both back in the UK. Just a 4 here.

Travis Bean also did an 8 like that.

The 6 bass was also made by Burns, who also did a 12 string bass version, although a certain Mr Leo F may have had first claim on the idea of a shortscale 6 bass.

Regards


Ian
