Am 18. September 2010 fand zum zweiten Mal in den Räumen der Fa. CMS Music Equipment der Lefty Bass Day statt. Hierbei wurde die Anzahl der vorgestellten Linkshänder Bässe durch die Mithilfe der Besucher um ein Vielfaches erhöht.

Neben den Bässen von Gerald Marleaux (überwiegend aus dem Besitz von Roland Prüfer) konnten auch Vintage Bässe von Fender, Musicman, Ibanez usw. begutachtet und gespielt werden.

Für musikalische Hightlights sorgten auf beeindruckende Weise die Bass-Gesang-Duo´s Felicia Uwaje und Knut Reiter, sowie Peter Masson und Chris Brank, Mitglieder der Berliner Band Moshtec, die sich spontan für einen kleinen Auftritt bereit erklärten.

Ihnen, den Besuchern und der Fa. CMS danke ich sehr für diesen gelungenen Tag, der einzig und allein den Linkshänder Bassisten gewidmet war.

Jürgen Weidner (CMS) und ich waren uns noch an diesem Tag einig, einen 3. Lefty Bass Day am 17.09.2011 zu veranstalten.

CMS Music Equipment Duisburg

On 18th September 2010 the 2nd Lefty Bass Day was realized again in the offices of company CMS Music Equipment in Duisburg / Germany. A number of left-handed basses presented by the help of visitors has increased many times over.

In addition to Gerald Marleaux basses (mostly from the collection of Roland Prüfer) and vintage Basses of Fender, Musicman, Ibanez, etc. could be examined and played. I´m sure this was one of the greatest exhibition lefthand basses ever.

For musical highlights ensured an impressive display of the bass-singing duo's Felicia Uwaje and Knut Reiter, as well as Peter Masson and Chris Brank, members of the Berlin band "Moshtec" who spontaneously declared ready for a small gig.

CMS and I are very grateful thank all visitors for this successful day, which was solely devoted to left-handed bass player.

Jürgen Weidner (CMS) and I were still in agreement on this day, a 3rd Lefty Bass Day to organize on 17/09/2011.
