  3. Any friendly bass players with a tame drummer that feel like dropping into Bristol at Chowny HQ to shoot a video and promote their band? :)

  4. With the impending release of our new Bass-Mopshere Chorus/Reverb pedal, we thought we'd tease out what we are making next. The FUNKYO pedal will be a monstrous envelope filter for maximum Funk! Estimated release about October/November. Definitely before Christmas. Updates to follow!

  11. This happens with most semi-hollow long scale basses. Combination of long neck and light body. Jack casady Bass is especially notorious for it. A good wide strap with a rough back will go a long way towards alleviating this. Some people also add an additional strap lock on the upper horn - but if you do this make sure you glue it as well. Hope this helps
  12. Some photos from the factory this morning. First we have an unpainted test assembly of a 2018 CHB bass. Next we have some CHBs queued up ready for painting And finally some painted SWB-1 bass necks in tubes
  13. I explain it earlier in the thread. Read back up. And you really don’t notice the change in scale after a minute or two.
  14. The 2017 CHB-2 (which you've got there is 34") and the 2018 CHB-2 (coming out in 4 weeks) is 33" So we're both right. Interesting reading your thoughts on the bass. The conclusion seems to be that you like it, but it might not be for you? - Stephen
  15. To answer the question of all ages (Can it be used for Metal), Leo Moracchioli used our Retrovibe EVO bass for his new Metal Cover :
  16. Look at the back of it - and then tell me that again.
  17. Outdated information. Thanks for the heads up. I'll correct it to 33" For the following reasons : 1. It allows better placement of the bridge, while still using the same body as the CHB-1. The 34" had the bridge pushed back towards the tailpiece more than I was comfortable with. 2. 33" feels comfortable and familiar if you play 34", but still leaves the strings under slightly less tension for good semi-hollow bass tone 3. No tippy-tippy neck dive. 4. Nobody else makes them at 33". Nice to do something different.
  18. We do a 30.7" Scale (CHB-1) and a 33" Scale (CHB-2) - just FYI
  19. <super_nerdy_graphic_design_content> I have a buddy who does all my artwork for me. I pick the colours from Fiestaware https://goo.gl/TZ8Y2s which was dinnerware made in the 1940s/1950s. They all kind of follow a similar design, but with a different two colours on each pedal. I try give each pedal a quirky retro aesthetic. Up till now we've put the pedal naming duties out to the public (and if we pick a name from somebody they get a free pedal). The artwork is vinyl hardwearing outdoor stickers. They're super resilient. The pedals come blank from the factory and I have to spend 4 hours sticking all the stickers on. Here's what the stickers look like: </super_nerdy_graphic_design_content> The next pedal will be an envelope filter (with a HP/LP blend). Name suggestions welcome!
  20. Hi All Lots going on at Chowny at the moment.
