  2. I think you'll find the sound will improve as the newness wears off the strings
  3. Thanks, just ordered an Elixir C string to try. They don't come in a set and the C string is the worst offender, although if I like the C I'll probably get the other 5. I'm a big fan of La Bella nylons, I have a spare 4 string set somewhere but they might be to thick for the nut.
  4. After longing for one of these beauties for a few months I finally got one. On the day it was delivered I became ill and hardly touched it for the first two weeks. Most BTB's are 35" scale, I wanted something shorter for playing chords, this is 33". It's very comfortable to play seated, seems ok standing and balances well. The strings are D'Addario NYXL and are a bit too bright for my liking. Can anyone recommend something warmer sounding that would fit? The picture doesn't do it justice, it's much nicer.
  5. AeroSilk Piezo system w/Active tone control
  6. Hi Jimmy, sorry only just seen this post. The bridge saddles are staggered with the E saddle being about 1/4" further from end of fingerboard than the G saddle I think you'd struggle to get the intonation spot on, but then it's fretless so if you adjust your technique accordingly it might be ok, after altering the nut of course. It's a great instrument, I used it on quite a few gigs, mainly sitting. Hope this helps
  7. Good to see you back on BC Clarky A nice bass indeed, I'd be tempted to have it back but have too many instruments and not enough gigs.
  8. I've owned over 20 db's & EUBs Right now I'm enjoying the Ibanez UB804 with 34" D'addario black nylon tape wounds. Does it sound like an upright? I'd say yes, more than the NS CR4 & NXT that I had. Maybe not as close as a Yamaha SLB200, but it it sounds good to me and is fun to play which is all that matters. Too many people listen with their eyes.
  9. Is weight an issue for you? It would be too heavy for me at 50lbs
  10. I'm thinking of selling my PJB Super Flightcase which is great for upright. 2 upwards facing speakers so you can hear yourself with no feedback issues due to small drivers,
