Re: What bass would you mail-order if you couldn't try first?

I have never played one, but would also consider a shires q. Especially considering you can then still tweak it with used shires parts. They come up pretty odten and you dont have to quit your house.

Stomvi trombones

What do you guys know about stomvi trombones?

They do pop up on classified sites here in europe from time to time and they look really sexy.

Anybody on here plays them?

I know a bass trombonist here about plays one and he sounds fantastic. But he already sounded great before playing stomvi.

The work was done in 2004 and the system already existed well before that.
