  1. Or any other bossa style song. There are loads of them.
  2. It might work if the lower bouts are wide enough on the bass. Besides sticking the bass in a corner, the Hora stand has been the most solid feeling. I tried a box stand but it just didn't feel stable enough for me. The Hercules stand is a possibility if it's adjustable. You could even maybe look at cello stands for a 1/4 db.
  3. Here is my lap steel with the bender. I have them installed on the A and C string on a C6 tuning (CEGACE). They move the A string up to A# and the C string up to C#. You can obviously set the pitch of each bender to whatever you want with in reason of the movement of the lever. That bar at the rear is a pivot for the bending mechanism and the mechanism can be moved along the bar to any string position. Also, benders can be set to bend the pitch down as well as up depending on where you install the string on the mechanism. Those four nuts you see on top and by the bar are fine tuners for both the open string and the pitch when the palm lever is pressed. Hope this helps.
  4. Hi Carl, I'll dig it out at the weekend as it's in storage and let you know. I'll take pics too if you want to see it.
  5. The benders can be installed on any string. I have two of them currently on string 2 and 3 (2nd and 3rd highest pitched). It's a pretty cool device
  6. How about a pic of what you've done
  7. +1 to the above advice. I switch between my db and my 5 string EUB which is a different scale. You'll be fine
  8. Here you go. I don't take mine apart, it just stays at home. For the bottom section, it's 20 cm from the floor to the section the bass sits on at the rear and 24 cm at the front, if that makes sense.The bottom sides are slanted so the bass tilts. Also, Once I put the bass on the stand, I reach under and loosen the end pin until it drops to the floor which helps hold the bas in the stand more securely IMO.
  9. I'll get some pictures this weekend.
  10. I bought one of these too and agree, they work great and the rubber is too thin, but easily fixed.
  11. Are you looking for a portable bass? As stated these smaller ones will have less volume than a standard size double bass. If you are wanting portability the Chadwick Folding bass is a winner. Lots of reviews and accolades.
  12. Here is a page from a Helix whiz. He's created some 810 sims with parametric eq blocks on the Helix. You may be able to use the settings and see what you come up with if you have similar eq devices. http://drtonelab.com/lab/8x10/
  13. I don't remember if you had used a GK MB800 with the F112 (the setup I use). Seems a good match. I nearly went for a Quilter from all the hype but have stuck with the GK. Glad there is another alternative out there to use with the F112.

  15. This is how I felt too when I started using a Fearless F112. You're not stuck with the sound of the cab, you can make it sound like just about anything you like. Using a HX Stomp with the F112 is like heaven
