Hi gnutix, do you have any other pictures of your AB2? It looks like it has a Prima/Z bridge. Is it a solid body or does it have hollow chambers?

Here you can find some pics of me and my beloved Dingwall at my band's Hellevation show on Saturday : http://perso.gnutix.net/gallery/dorian/ ... hlandspub/ Hope you'll like it. The lights are sometimes odd, we were very close from the projectors because of the small place we add for the gear. A complete live video will follow, with a very loud and nice Dingwall sound ^^ A quick glance: [img:26yybes7]http://perso.gnutix.net/gallery/images/dorian/lives/highlandspub/03.jpg[/img:26yybes7] [img:26yybes7]http://perso.gnutix.net/gallery/images/dorian/lives/highlandspub/16.jpg[/img:26yybes7]

[quote="Smallmouth_Bass":3rjf8kl4]Nice setup Brim. What is that, seven monitors?[/quote:3rjf8kl4] This photo depicts the Spanish service band which is a 3-piece with 5 vocals (bass, guitar swaps between electric and acoustic, and drums). The usual Sunday morning band is a 6-piece with 5 vocals (drums, bass, 2 electrics, acoustic guitar singer, keys). The worship leader gets two monitors (because he's the boss!). Bass and 2 electrics each get their own wedge . Keys get a wedge (not pictured). Background vocals get 3 monitors to share. Drummer is in a booth with a headphone or in-ear signal. There's 3 separate monitor mixes dividing between the wedges and the drummer gets a dedicated mix from the the main board. We are seriously considering the move to in-ears for everybody. We have the system already spec'd out and money allocated to purchase. The only thing holding us back is the cost of everyone going out and getting custom ear molds made and getting some decent in-ears (triple driver etc.)

Damn, I'm envious of that Greenburst Frank! I have loved that particular bass ever since it "debuted" here on the forum :)

I've been a busy player this past weekend- 4 shows in 3 days. My ABI performed flawlessly, as usual, and despite crazy temprature and weather extremes, the tuning was rock solid: [b:2zuevwvu]Thursday[/b:2zuevwvu]: 9PM gig in an air conditioned club, that quickly heated up due to an enormous crowd, tuned down 1/2 step. [b:2zuevwvu]Friday[/b:2zuevwvu]: 4PM gig outside on a covered stage at the TBone Walker Blues Festival, steady light rain and high 70s temps, tuned up to A-440; the stage crew outside saw me and the first thing they asked was, " Did you bring the Dingwall?"- they remembered from last year; then back to the air conditioned club at 9PM, tuned down 1/2 again, where the place became hotter and more crowded than the night before (they actually ran out of cold beer - no problem, though - I was sipping Patron :D) [b:2zuevwvu]Saturday[/b:2zuevwvu]: Blues festival again at 4PM, but inside this time, tuned back to pitch. Yep, one of the inside stage crew saw me and asked, "You playing the Dingwall today?"- he also remembered it from last year. Whew- that's a lot for an old guy, but the Dingwall was, again, a total pleasure to play and the tuning was very stable. The sound guys, again, raved about the tone and reported that the bass needed no EQing at the board. The inside guy commented after the set, " I wish more guys used a Dingwall- it sounds amazing." Yes, it does :D Thanks, Sheldon, for creating such an incredible instrument. Mark

Here's me and Ricky Skaggs. I turned a corner and almost hit him in the forehead with my headstock. I also talked to Trace Adkins' bass player for a while, since he was the host of our section. He plays a 5 string Fender Jazz, so I'm thinking he might want to check out the new Super J 5s.

Hey, way to go Mike! Now, you know you've hit the big time when you play the OPRY. I played it many years ago and It's something you'll never forget. Did you get to meet any of your idols and who all did you meet. I know what a thrill It was like for me, so I know exactly how you felt. Nothing else like it. Congrats man!!! TB

The "Done-wells" (as a friend of mine calls them) are made in such a way as if Sheldon had my hands in front of him. His ability to communicate and his open ears and mind has made it very easy to translate my ideas into reality with the magic of the "Dingwall touch". The rest of my basses seem less versatile and less able to fit EVERY and ANY musical call. Each one of my other basses has an identity and fits within my needs up to a point. But the one bass that fits my hand and body without any need to adjust, produces a sound fullfilling and gratifying (both solo and with a group; active and passive), appealing to musicians and non-musicians alike and it's flawless in every aspect is the Dingwall. The fact that these basic requirements are met to the highest standard leaves room to allow different approaches (woods, pickups, laminations etc) to shine through. The quest is never ending but we are on the right path: the Dingwall path. and another thing that i've realized: many people are complaining that longer scale basses are tiring, but it's not the same with DW basses. The width at the nut is a "minor" but very crucial design aspect that gets overlooked. I had to sell a gorgeous great sounding 35" Sei 6str because the width at the nut was wider that what i like and easily acommodate. The width of the DW nut is a comfortable one (if it were to be perpendicular to the strings). Imagine that with the Novax approach the same width gives us longer strings (so the stretch for our fingers is still the same!!!!!) :D . And i like the fact that the strings are nice and not very tight at the nut (but still close to one another) and they spread down to a comfortable string to string spacing at the brigde.

[quote="fullrangebass":1v4xfo63]They both know the extend of my herd but they both thought of the same thing: Dingwall. I felt really grateful for the great instrument that Sheldon and his team are providing us with.[/quote:1v4xfo63] That's quite a complement for DDG, considering your collection. Do your Dingwalls make the other basses you own seem less special? I sat in on a buddy's Alembic 5 string the other night and it felt like a 5 string Fender. It was exhausting, and it made me appreciate my Dingwalls even more :D Mark

In the midst of all things going crazy around me, I chose to travel on saturday night 4hrs to honour a Professor of mine who gets retired and asked me to perform at the gala after a congress. We need to cover songs from " Besame mucho", "Sway" and "I will survive" to "like the way I do", "Roxanne" and "Wait for sleep" (yes that one, from Dream theater!!! :shock: ). For a second i had a question as to which basses I'd carry with me; both my brother (guitar player) and another bass player friend of mine (who will serve as sound engineer) told me "take one of the Dingwalls. You need to cover many different styles. no need to bother for any other bass". They both know the extend of my herd but they both thought of the same thing: Dingwall. I felt really grateful for the great instrument that Sheldon and his team are providing us with. I will post pics as soon as i get back

Ok, so it's not me payin' dues! This is a recent shot of Wide Mouth Mason with Dingwall endorser Earl Pereira and his Z2. If you guys have not seen this band live, you really do have to when they pass through your town. Nothing less than amazing!
