Tinfoil Bass

Tinfoil BassThis is your basic stick-with-strings, scaled as an electric bass. Its special feature is a small attachment for positioning a piece of tin foil so that it rattles against the strings. A piezo pickup is placed on the tin foil, and the result is a wonderfully raunchy bass sound. Notice that there is no separate wood piece that is the fingerboard, instead the frets are set directly into the wood of the neck.
