slapomatic   slap-o-matic   headstock   slapside1   slapside2

The slap-o-matic was a commission for a two string hybrid between a double bass and a bass guitar. The slap-o-matic is made largely from spruce with rosewood fingerboard, bridge, saddle and string anchor points. It features an inbuilt piezo pickup located under the bridge and has volume and tone controls and a 1/4" jack output. The instrument is supported on a slightly modified arm of a snare drum stand (as specified in the commission!).
