It is, I agree, utterly barking, originally influenced by 1920s bass banjos and reimagined by drummer/percussionist (and tea head*) extraordinaire Joe Caswell (if anybody wants a copy of his CD of percussion solos "Full Tilt" just ask, it's a very good listen) about 20 years ago, the original Joe Bass was built by my pal Brian Eastwood. I've just been recording with it and it sounds surprisingly decent but it's a bit of a beast to play (though no more than an upright).

* 'Tea Head' :- a '70s nickname for people who are aficionados of a certain 'natural' smoking material.
