    Patrick Cosme basses

    Hi, Nick ! Thanks for asking, since I think many other Basschat members wonder about that. There are many knobs, and all of them have a function ( on EARTH! Just kidding, Nick, ok? ). So.... From right to left, on the bottom line, the 3 first are : main volume, piezo volume, MIDI volume. From right to left, on the upper line, the first is pick-ups balance. So, as you noticed, this piccolo bass has a big electronic system (MIDI, and piezo pick-up) and, for the "regular" pick-ups, the Alembic-style filters systems. For each pick-up, you can select the frequency you like and modify the Q width. You can check this on the pic I uploaded just for you! Don't hesitate if you have any question; have a very good day !

    Patrick Cosme basses

    Hi, everybody ! I wanted to share with you guys the works of the french luthier Patrick Cosme. I'm the proud owner of several instruments he hand-crafted :-D He makes custom hand-made intruments, and has recently started a vintage design instruments serie. I had the occasion to try some of them, and man ! Patrick is not only a fantastic luthier, but also an amazing bassist, and he has an "inside view" of the making of the instrument. He made fretted, fretless, chambered body, fanned fret, piccolo, midi basses, and the "vintage" basses!!! Here are pictures of different instruments, hope you'll enjoy them !
  5. Hi, everybody ! We are a french voice/bass guitar duet, and we explore the possibilities of our loop stations. We hope you'll enjoy this video ! [url="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSia6HaJ8A0"]https://www.youtube....h?v=XSia6HaJ8A0[/url]

  9. Hi, everybody ! I just wanted to share some pictures I made a few weeks ago, at "le salon de la lutherie de Montpellier" ( lutherie exhibition in Montpellier, France). Patrick was there with new instruments. Here are the pics [url="http://imageshack.com/f/p91fBoekp"][/url] [url="http://imageshack.com/f/pb3bG73lp"][/url] [url="http://imageshack.com/f/exgMwO8hp"][/url] [url="http://imageshack.com/f/f00xhh4Ep"][/url] Just a few words about this instrument : as you can see, it has a fanned fret fingerboard, a Mike Pope four band preamp, a piezo pickup and MIDI system. You can imagine all the tones you can get with this bass, it is just AMAZING ! ! ! [url="http://imageshack.com/f/pdtgVgsVp"][/url] [url="http://imageshack.com/f/f0Ax62uyp"][/url] You can get more informations about these instruments on Patrick's FB page ( [url="https://www.facebook.com/cosme.basses?fref=ts"]https://www.facebook....basses?fref=ts[/url] ) I have tried all these basses, and they sound so good, man!!!

The idea : one voice, one bass, one looper for each one, and avanti la musica!!! ;-) By now, we play covers we arranged in our way, and we have good hopes for compositions (!). If you want to hear our teaser, and send us your comments, feel free about it : https://www.facebook.com/pages/Loop-DeLuxe/1397940737089427?ref=hl Have a very good day, guys! :-D Xtof PS : and sorry for my crappy english, ayayay!!
  13. Hi, folks! After having played these two beauties for several months, and having been stunned by their qualities, I sold my Alembic ( yes, sir!) and ordered Patrick another bass : a long scale maple fingerboard, ash body with a wenge top, headless, 4 strings, this time, ... Back to basics, I would say! ;-) Here is the latest pic of the crafting in progress... Hope you will enjoy it!
