I played an acoustic bass made by Heiner at the Music Fair Frankfurt for the very first time and let me tell you, that I fell in love with it from this moment on. For the next 6 months I had to stand a very hard time, because I was dreaming every night, holding this bass in my hands and saw me touching it and what I heard was a wonderful sound. But after this 6 months my dream got reality and now I hold a Heiner Dreizehnter bass in my hands. What I hear, is the sound that I heared in my dreams - an outstanding sound with a unique colour in the whole range of its instrument scale, singing in the high notes and a strong grounding in the low notes. This instrument made me sick for its sound and looking. Now my wife Manu has a hard time, to share my love with my Dreizehnter bass.
