In 1978 Hamer constructed the world’s first twelve string bass. The design was based upon the ancient Tiple with four groups of three strings. Easier to play than it would appear, every bassist owes it to themselves to have one in their collection. Sometimes called the “pocket piano,” it is a bold sonic statement that is perfect for trio applications as well as ensemble settings. The twelve string has a thunderous roar and stinging overtones that are the signature sound of this unique instrument.
