6-String Quartertone Bass
November 2013
6-String Quartertone Bass
This bass was constructed for Ahmed Nazmi, and Egyptian bass player of enormous talent. He blends different musical traditions in a beautiful way, and needed a fretted instrument to allow for certain quartertones. Playing the bass with the extra frets proves interesting but doable, and definitely opens up new musical possibilities.
