What does everyone think of this bass? ANyone played it? heard things about it?
Do a search, I'm sure something will show up.
Obviously thats the first thing i do. I read every review for it that exists on the net, but id like to know if anyone here has any advice on it.
FInal bump, then ill assume that everyone on here is kinda dead and doesnt know anything about htis bass.,
BUMP-ing a 3 year old thread.
Come on guys, some of you must have had experiences with this bass! There's NOTHING about the bass when I searched.
OK, I'll help out the people waiting 3 years. I played one at a music store once. Solid bass. Neck was a bit thin but felt nice. Sounds good but unspectacular. Carol Kaye loves them.
Okay, i'll reply on this thread aswell since i wasn't around 3 years ago. I played this bass for a solid 2 years. It's an excellent bass my only complaint was the stock preamp is totally weak. drop in an OBP-3 and listen to it scream.
Ive always wondered... How are the stock PUs?
And do you play metal?
Yeah i play metal, the stock PU's are alright, i originally planned on putting in some Basslines but ended up selling it (my ex-girlfriend paid for most of it and we had a bad break up so i ended up ditching the bass, bad memories) it's an amazing bass though. It cuts through the mix very nicely.
Meh, still got doubts.
How you think the new MDB-1 is gonna play?
KSE's bassist's sig bass. Mike D'Antonio!
i used to have the five string version. really nice bass for the price (and now the prices have dropped), i only got rid of it so i could fund a Carvin (GAS).
i would never play a mainstream metal signature bass, they all look cheesy.
if you're thinking about getting an SRX the 700 is really really nice but you can't be the SR500/5/6 series..you dont have the touch any of the electronics on those bad boys.
I just want the "Johnny Christ Sound". But can't afford a Sterling at the moment.
I love metalcore but the bass in them are just, well, burpy.
How about the Yamaha BB415. Good for metalcore?
I had the 5 string version. It felt good to play, but The damn thing would randomly go out of tune. I was playig at church once after tuning it twice then it went out again. That was the last straw. I sold it for less than half the money I paid for it. (got it brand new) It didnt sound that great either. Im sour on Ibanez in general after that. The tone just want my thing. Theres not way you should pay more than 700 for a bass and have that happen.
I got one used from Music-Go-Round 6 months ago in great shape for a good price. From a playability, balance, and construction perspective it is an excellent bass. It is the only active bass I have and it has a wide range of voices, which is why I bought it.
Am I in love ? .... not yet, probabaly never will be. But I like it a lot. Gigged it for the first time last month for 1 set and the bandmates later complained that it did not cut thru like my Fenders. Probably should have spent more time tweaking the EQ, but I plan to give it plenty more chances to find out if it is going to work for me long term.
I've got the 705.....great bass. I use it to play jazz and jammy music.
I want to apologize to everyone for my attitude, 11 years ago.
Well..... If Carol Kaye plays it, it aint too shabby right?
