Bass gear: Marvin Tailpieces

For those that perhaps have not seen a bass with the Marvin tailpiece system, this is definitely something pretty awesome when it comes to bass gear.  The theory behind this completely cable system (yes no heavy ebony tailpiece!) is that it will provide greater sound and sustain, faster bow response, eliminate wolf tones, and will feel softer when fingering with the lefthand.  Check out for more details and photos.
