Recently I was listening to some music in my studio and suddenly I saw this video of an Octobass. My studio monitors are equipped with a subwoofer for the ultimate low end auditioning and can you imagine what a double bass sounds like if it’s tuned AN OCTAVE BELOW the regular tuning? Well, obviously, you could use a bigger body and a longer string length, which is the Octobass. And you need a subwoofer or headphones to fully enjoy this video!
Here’s a video of someone with an electric upright emulating an octobass, that’s awesome p76slug…note that he’s playing with a double bow!
