Post First gig with NS/Stick, I'm in love
Hey, y'all!

I received my NS/Stick 3 weeks ago and played my first gig with it yesterday. What a wonderful instrument! Even though I played it mostly as a 5 -string bass, I did get to make some forays onto the higher strings. Even a bit of very simple two-handed tapping. Also had to fiddle with string volume balance between the thicks and thins, but I think I'm getting there.

I am almost kicking myself for not getting one 15 years ago, but hindsight is always 20/20.

But what an experience! The NS was such a joy to play and I even ventured to new ground spontaneously during the gig.

Thanks to Emmett and crew and lots of thanks to all you on this forum. Reading about your experiences and tips has really helped me out in starting my new musical path.

Cheers,
Topi

Dang, you and Rodrigo are quick learners. Any video?

Glad to see such progress so quickly, looking forward to more gig reports.

No video and too few pics. :(
Oh well, more will come with time. Sadly NS didn't make it onto our next recording, unless I think up some nice additional stuff this fall. But after that.

The NS can sound so huge with a couple of harsh fuzz boxes! :)

They do look like fun extended range bass guitars. I thought about it, but needing a left-handed model, I let it be. Glad to hear it is working for you.
