    Awesome bass!

    My favorite PDN.

    Hopefully it will not be the last PDN and they are just skipping this year.

    I had been contemplating a 5-string, but after borrowing one for a couple of weeks and giving it a full go, decided for a few reasons to stick to 4's.
    Well, if you do get interested again in a Firemist Purple 5-string, i'd consider trading you all the chrome hardware from one of my 5s for your black hardware. :-) (I also love purple, and especially the Firemist!)

    Hey, I recognize that Bongo!

    Does the fact that only one bass being offered seem odd to anyone else?

    You mean for next year? I think there will be more than one bass - just hearing rumors, you know.

    When do new colors typically get announced for existing models?

    Even with more basses, the BFR replacing the PDN is disappointing to me. The more instruments offered, still may not include an instrument I would be wanting to put money down on. Liked how the PDN was basically open for all instruments with very limited exceptions.

    Well, I suppose everyone could say that. I've been there myself. But I'd suggest everyone calm down, play come Parcheesi, read that book you've been meaning to read, pick up your Bongo and learn some waltzes, whatever gets you through the night and let's see what NAMM brings.

    Just got the word that there is a Sterling 5 moving eastward to the Armybass Prooving Grounds. Just days away kiddies!
