Thread Name: Review: my newest washtub bass
Subject: RE: Review: my newest washtub bass
A "classic" gutbucket.
The crowd I hang with have mostly copied my modern double bass, with fixed fingerboard in place of the pully-string, although no one has successfully duplicated my coupled-resonant-dual-tuned-double-bucket construction. There are still lots of novel designs cropping up - and many repeats of the classic ones.
An "interesting variation" here. He seemed to have too much trouble maneuvering his undercarriage through the road gravel to play much, so I didn't get any recordings.
