whats a good 5 string around 700$? any kind of bass to particular genre
Ibanez soundgear, Dean Edge 5, stuff like that
You can get a Lakland Skyline 55-01,a Peavey and probably a few other things. I highly recommend the Skyline.
I would look at the lakland, but don't forget the Yamaha's, both the BB series, and the RBX series. I have a BBg5s, they can be picked up for $200-$300, and I have absolultely no complaints.
mtd kingston, or heir
I used it last night at a gig, and I am completely impressed with the sound it is capable of. Not as good as my ZON, but better than the Lakland Skyline I had, IMO.
MTD Kingston 5 or Heir 5. Sub-$1000 basses should not have preamps.
Maybe, but both the Skyline pre and the Rockbass pre are very good for the price. I had a Kingston, and both the Skyline and the Rockbass are much better sounding, IMO.
Now Ibanez...whew, those pres sound horrible to me...
which rockbass and skyline are u comparing? ive been looking into both basses, but havent been able to get to a store that carries them. They both seem really nice for the price.
I am talking about the Lakalnd Skyline 55-01 and the Rockbass that has the MEC pups/preamp....
$729 Direct, Get a Reverend 5.
These are very good sounding basses, their only problems are they dont have nice wood tops and an active pre . . . BUT they don't need them. (This stuff only massages egos) These basses sound great! (They look cool too)
The Carvin B5, a bolt-on with 2 J pickups and active electronics, starts at $649. Case is another $40, shipping about $20.
The LB75, a neck-through, starts at $729. Same pickups and electronics.
Carvin's J-style pickups are mediocre, and the preamp is OK but nothing special, but the construction is excellent and customer service superb. Give 'em a look.
Look for a used bass, you should be able to get a pretty nice 5 stribg for $700 used.
I wish I had $700 to spend on a bass but I've been eyein' this one lately...----->Beautiful Bass...
BBN5, BB605, BB405, almost anything ibanez, MTD Kingston 5, almost all of the yamaha rbx series
Great point. A few years ago I picked up a MIA Jazz 5 for $650 with hardshell case.
Ibanez BTB 405QM
Greatest lows youll ever hear for under 600 dollars
Try out the Spector Professional series! I think they list higher than your budget, but reckon you could get them within it!
I got a REX2000/5 - over here it cost me £665, but where you are you might get them down to your budget.
My vote goes for the Lakland Skyline 55-01. A great bass.
This kind of quality and sound would have cost thousands a few years ago.
