I know, I know. Call me Mr Luckypants.

Not sure why I've waited so long before putting on TI Jazz Flats, it's a whole 'nother level of heft to notes *at living room volume*. It' s like having a badass double bass that sounds soft and deep and throaty and woody and creamy all at once.

Full disclosure: through an SWR Workingman's 12 combo on a tiltback stand in the niche under the staircase.

We may need to see a picture of the staircase and niche in question for a better understanding of this "full disclosure".  :)

You get a pretty good idea from the picture of the crown headstock, in reply #2.  :o

Ask me about the wallpaper.

Adriaan , I love your six with that head stock .  Within the process of my mentation regarding what features would be an aspect of  a definitive blue print for my " Six in the future" , a combination of yours and the recent Wave makes sense to me In a design incorporating neck LEDs , I seem to be favoring electronics inclusive of the 5 PIN connection as well as string spacing as on the " Wave ".  My thoughts are passing through all of such definitive options  :) . I also love David's six as well ,  therefore I am looking at all of these possibilities .

Wolf, this six had its own set of fairy godparents, I guess i's just starting to pay forward.  :)

To name a few ...

Any and all of the Brown Bass family, period.

Nik's 33" 6-string ...


And 82-2121

Ah!

Ask me about the wallpaper.

Can't make out the wallpaper; what effect is it having on the sound?

Fans of the Harry Potter books and films will know that the orphan boy was living in the cupboard under the stairs at his uncle and aunt's house. The wallpaper in the hallway outside the closet in the films is the exact same colour and pattern that we have in the staircase above my bass niche. We noticed that when we did the Harry Potter Studio Tour in Leavesden UK, where they have several film sets on permanent display.

That 82 Series top wood is jaw droping... Alembic basses are really outstanding.
Not just a bass, this is an Alembic!
