I just found out that bassman Bob Babbitt was admitted to the hospital earlier this month with a brain tumor. No word yet as to whether or not they are going to be able to operate.
Prayers and best wishes to Bob.
Enjoy one of the songs on which he played bass. The good vibes will ride to him on waves of thunder!

Dingwall makes some of the most beautiful basses in the world, and the Novax fanned fret system makes them ergonomically easy on the hands. These made-in-Canada basses are more than instruments - they are true works of art.

OvationB778TX Acoustic/Electric Bass
Ovation basses are noted for their clarity and focused pitch. The roundback Lyrachord body provides projection and detail—even in the lowest registers—and avoids the muddy tones that plague competitor’s acoustic basses made with wood bodies and flat backs. Ovation’s bass guitars feature Mid-Depth composite bodies.
