That's at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix. It's an amazing place. I've spent hours and hours there.

As for the bass, if I had a van big enough to hold that instrument and a house with high enough ceilings, I'd get one.

Not one of the best Bond movies but not terrible.

Sounds like a Cessna and a helicopter flying overhead at the same time.

I'm sure, as designed, it does add to a orchestral setting but not much of a solo instrument, is it?
