    Sale bump on this bass this week only I will do 700 shipped. Best deal on the forum right now, will do trades

    Just got this 5501 on the forum. It's great playing & great sounding. I've just decided to get another Lakland DJ5 or maybe a Nordy VJ5.

    Modded and hotrodded w/ Bartolini MK5s and NTMB 5.2 AP preamp. Also sports 55-02 knobs which make it easier to see where the controls are.

    Bass is in great shape - no dings or scratches. Weighs just over 9 1/4 lbs. Comes with nicely padded gig bag.

    Sound clip posted further down in the thread.

    $750 shipped CONUS

    Will now consider 5 string basses with great B strings and 19mm spacing. Nordy VJ5 modern is on my list, etc. I trade up, you trade down.

    Also interested in is a TC electronic BH250 or BG250 plus cash on your end, will consider a GK 700rb II, or 1001rb II, or a GK Neo 2x12. Maybe even a Micro head, Make me a trade offer all I can say is I'll pass.

    Hmm, I have no experience with the MK5s, any thoughts regarding the tone? I imagine you can shape alot with the active EQ. Lately been more of a P/J/Ray guy but would love a plex'd 35" scale 5er.

    This is the 2nd 5501 I've had w/ American MK5 barts. The lows and low mids are great. More warmth than the standard MK1, way more clarity and bottom. The Bart pre w/ active/passive is a nice combination.

    Hello, is the sound balance between each string?

    The sound is balanced between the strings. No sound clips.

    These are great basses for the price. Especially with these electronics.
