Video of The Rail

Post by Cov on Mon May 28, 2012 7:25 pm

Hi,

I quite like Westone's Rail bass guitar.

But why isn't there anywhere a videoclip, demonstrating some bassplay?
I mean you can find almost anything on YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion, etc but not a single video about this bass.

Would it be alright for someone who owns this wonderful instrument to record a few minutes and upload for us to watch please?

Thank you

He definitely lubs his Rails... and he is a pretty cool kid to boot.

I don't really have any recording equipment, and none of my concert videos have either good lighting or good audio quality. Additionally, I haven't had a functioning digital camera in over a year. My parents do have functioning cameras though, so perhaps I could try out the video function on one of them, see how the sound turns out.

One of mine or Arthur's will be along for Electrafest. Have to decide who has the best example. But that's a ways off, doesn't help if Cov would like a video sooner rather than later.

Gentlemen, have you ever had the feeling you really, really need to get one particluar bass? I have this feeling right now, Razz
First thing I have done was to gather all pictures of the Rail google has to offer. It found 102 pictures for me and I'm looking at them right now.

Maybe I shouldn't do this, cause it makes me feel so ... uhm ... desperate? tongue
Why did they stop selling them I wonder .. and why hasn't any other bass manufacturer picked up the design?

It's simply beatiful ►



If it's not allowed to post pictures here, please delete.
Thanks

Pictures are just fine to post. That Rail has a really weird aftermarket pickup on it; looks a bit haphazardly attached. scratch

Just to let you know how I found the RAIL in the first place.
From a board for musicians.

Never mind the language, it's the first posting on the top ►

w w w . musiker-board . de/e-baesse-bass/470466-sammelthread-zur-identifikation-wertschaetzung-baessen.html

That thread was created for those looking for estimates of second hand basses.

I was kind of shocked, to be honest Razz

I feel the need to add the "I didn't actually know how to play this song" disclaimer! Wow, the bass is way overpowering in this recording.

Also, hi guys! I've been crazy busy lately between work and juggling three bands, sorry I haven't been around!
