Probably not, but T-I now also makes a Bel Canto extended E. I have no experience with it; as a matter of fact I discontinued the Bel Canto regular E string on my bass in favor of a Spiro 3885.5W. I...

Beautiful bass! The attention to detail and aesthetics are superlative. I really like the decoration on the scroll. From a functionality standpoint, I also really like the "reversed" gears so the G...

Why not? It's just a "tug bar" revisited. I also recommend that if you must, make it a piece of wood that compliments the bass and just glue it on permanently so it doesn't look "tacked on."

Don't Laugh - Prelude G string

Don't Laugh - D'Addario Prelude G string. Yes, the "student" one.

I just got done with a series of "standards" gigs and took off my Bel's ADG (kept my Spiro 3885.5W) and put on the Jazzer D & A I...

Can't afford to get to the east coast from the mid west right now. Thanks for the invitation. One of these days I will take you up on that.

I agree. It's all a balance between strong enough to withstand use, but still light enough to not impede resonance. I wish I could hear the Hart in person.

Another reason I like the 2(B&E) + 3(ADG) arrangement is that because this usually puts the B tuner farther from the nut than any other arrangement, whether 3+2, 4+1, or even 5+0, there is more room...

When first settled, the entire region was called Carolina after King Charles I. About 1729 it was divided into north and south, and the regional politics as to why would consume too much bandwidth.
