Is this the Eich?

I played on one at one of the LBGS with a drummer - every rimshot sent a shot up my legs.

Great gadget (£500+) but I'm pretty sure the novelty would wear off.

What is it and what does it do?!

From what I can see, at £500 it makes you significantly poorer, but marginally taller.

Like one of those books that will make you two inches taller...

I'm sitting on mine right now!!

To be honest I think it's one of my best buys - it enables you to 'feel' the bass as if you're sitting in front of a massive speaker stack. I use mine as part of my studio/office setup for playing bass and listening to music. It helps with timing, feel, and it's nearly silent. I haven't used it 'live' yet but will be in a few weeks.

It’ll be of great benefit to all those who play an inanimate object such as a plank. For those who play a double bass there is no need. All the ‘feel’ you need is naturally transmitted through its body.

Our drummer has the drummer's equivalent - a throne with the shaker built in. He always brings to rehearsals, and swears by it.

I use the Grammar pad to good effect which tightens up the bass sound for around £40................!

Different thing - you stand on a bassboard :)

Really!

I actually put a chair on mine and sit on it but yes - imagine it like standing on the grille of an upturned speaker cab. Feels awesome

I use a Porter & Davies Bass board on IEM gigs. We have no back line, everyone is DI'd (except drums & brass etc). The bass board is great as it gives me weight back into my sound thats missing from IEM's alone. It does sound like a gimmick, until you try it.
