Sorry, my bad.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whamola

The Whamola is a unique bass instrument used in Funk-Jazz styles of music.

A direct descendant of the washtub bass, an American folk instrument popular with skiffle and jug bands, and its European alternative the tea chest bass, the Whamola consists of a double-bass style neck with a pulley-and-lever system and a single string, all mounted onto a wooden (or metal, as seen in use by Les Claypool) body and a stand. It is played by hitting the string with a drum stick and either fretting the string with the other hand or altering the string's tension using the pully-and-lever system to change the pitch.

I love you. You need to assemble a band and do Whamola! live. That would be so epic.

lol, I love Primus, and I assume 2112 is from Rush which is my favorite band, and you also have an Epi (I have a les), and you have the same pedal as me.

That's wierd.

I'd put this in Bass Guitar too. They'd love it.

Awesome man.
Filth, pure filth... That's what you are.

I was about to say that plenty of people have epi's and digitech multifx processors, and that the fact that you both love primus and rush just make you normal bassists (I've always thought of both as the quintessential rock bands worshipped by bassists), until I realized neither of you play bass (I got to this thread through the link in the bass forum). So, ya, that is weird...

Edit: ^ The Hurt Within is right, all of us at the bass forum really are enjoying it
