That is a brief history for this famous bass therefore we can’t describe every modification and modification which was built to it throughout the several years it was in manufacturing. Neither is it feasible to go over every one of the many individuals and organizations that have added to its passage through history.
The bass ended up being created by Walter HГ¶fner in 1955 and first demonstrated to the general public during the Frankfurt Musikmesse into the springtime of 1956. It would appear that Walter’s intention would be to create a bass electric electric guitar that might be appealing to players associated with bass that is uprightdual bass) who not desired to carry such a large hefty tool around to relax and play in beat and jazz teams. He also designed the bass so the construction technique could be familiar towards the employees at HГ¶fner who had previously been making violins for years. So we got a bass with the design and form maybe not unlike a traditional instrument that is stringed built in quite similar method, hollow bodied, arched topped and a collection in throat. Walter utilized elements from the HГ¶fner electric electric guitar line and adpated these when it comes to bass, so that it got the familiar ebony connection, the cable tailpiece, the oval control interface, the black colored bar pickups.
