Yeah, but can't you just see the windows shattering when you hit a big chop? http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif

I got some apropos stuff off the contrabass website, adapted to this situation:

"You may be a contramandobass maniac if..."

You own an instrument taller than at least one of your children
> and he/she's in kindergarten
> and he/she's in junior high school
> and he/she is an adult
> and he/she is taller than you are...

You own an instrument that weighs more than at least one of your children
> Not including the case
> And your child plays football
> Professionally

People come up to you after a gig and ask "What is that thing?"
> And after you tell them, and they still don't understand
> And its the leader of your band who's asking

Your instrument eats smaller instruments when you turn your back

You drive a van or truck because your instrument won't fit in anything smaller
> Its a flatbed truck
> With a crane

The wait time for a new one from the luthier is quoted in decades

You had to bribe the local zoning board to be able to play it in a residential area

You had to obtain a building permit to make the case

You use the Goodyear blimp for a gig bag

Your lower notes register on the Richter scale
> And the seismograph is across town
> In another state
> And the US Geological Survey now telephones to see if you've been practicing before they report any seismic activity

You can leave your instrument unattended, because nobody can steal it without construction equipment

The instrument itself can be seen from Mars
