To get some fairly authentic look on the foil I blended some drops of black paint pigment into some Danish oil, applied it with a piece of cloth on the wrinkled foil and wiped off the excess. After it dried 5 coats of matte rattle can spray lacquer was sprayed on and once that was dry a few coats of furniture wax.
So how does it sound? Below some MP3 sound clips I recorded by plugging the bass straight into my PreSonus Audiobox 44VSL soundcard.
However, about 3 years after all this, I decided to do a
makeover on this bass.
