Hi guys. I currently play a Yamaha 613 G and whilst it's been good to me in 20 + years I'm am looking for a replacement. Obviously open wrap and a bit lighter are pre-requisites. I have always had my heart set on a Rath but I have also been looking at Edwards and Shires. Interestingly it seems the Edwards Bell section measuring 10 inches is a much bigger seller now rather than the standard 9 1/2 inches. At the moment i find myself rather financially embarrassed and so my above expensive options may have to wait. However in the meantime I spotted a Thomann SL 50 Bass Bone on the Thomann website at a modest £880 inc post. It seems to be a modern design, other than the rotary valves, and comes with a good warranty. Does anyone know much about this make??...it seems to me to be a rebranded chinese model perhaps but I admit I may be wrong in this assumption. Thank you.
