Seren, I'II check out your album, we may be thinking on similiar lines. I take it you must be pretty adept to use an umarked (fret markers) fretless ! 

Yep - I'm an expert me! ! ! :o - err, no, I play around with it until It's tuned with a sound I like to begin with and then go by ear.....

I've been in the process of moving and only wired up the studio in it's new home over the weekend so yet to get stuck into anything.

I've had to buy a new computer (PC was on last legs) and get new music software (Sonar Artist) as my Sonar 5 would not run on windows 10....

...a salutary lesson for everyone - never throw away your old software discs - sometimes they contain things no longer available (in this instance a Lexicon reverb plug in....) I'm thinking of getting it off ebay to get the reverb back.....

Back to the bass - enjoy and let us know how it goes.

Thats a good looking bass Pete....beautiful wood.  Loved bass guitar though I dont play.  Rickenbacher are a name I grew up with used in my favorite bands, Rush and Yes.

Interesting adventure to incorporate the playing and sound into ambient compositions.

Hi Pete - nice looking bass, you should really enjoy coaxing sounds out of it.



Here is mine....I find it really nice for making ambient music

Forrest: Thanks for the tips.  I really enjoyed Fellirium - Mermaids. Two of the tracks in particular (Ghost in the Water and Dreaming Fish) are outstanding.

Yeah, ΠΑΝΘΕΟΝ label is highly recommended, Tim & Aloe are doing amazing work!!! And btw, you can find my review of "Mermaids" here on Hypnos forum, just go to Independent Music Reviews.  :)

Nice looking bass, Pete! 

I have a japanese circa 2000 fretless jazz bass.  Someday it'll find it's way into a tune or two.
