I'm surching for a very good light and little 5 strings bass.
Do you some have ideas ????
What price range? Also when you say little, do you mean smaller string spacing (thiner neck)?
Reverend is a nice light 5 string semi hollow body with whompin' tone and awesome playability.
A Dean Edge Q5 is a lightweight, versatile, great sounding bass that most would consider "budget". They've upped the price on them, though as of late. They're really great instruments. I have a 6-er and it's great.
The lightest 5 string I've ever layed hands on was my Warwick (yes Warwick. They're not all heavy) streamer Standard. It soundsed pretty stinking good, too. They don't make them as actual warwicks anymore, but you can get them as RockBass versions with maple/rosewood necks. They have the carolena body, which is what made the Warwick version light. If you look an Ebay, you might be able to find a real one. If not, the Rockbass version is pretty cheap.
You mean "searching"?
Cort Curbow- lightest thing out there.
Because it's made out of a smelly plastic.
So are those Ibanez ones-very light as well.
The lightest (actual wood) fiver I've played was an alder (or maybe ash) Hill Standard 5. Way too light, almost.
Peavey NTB grind bass 5 string. Neck thru body with case will cost you new about $390 online.
The Elrick's are typically very light (around 7 lbs.) and still have a great sound. Not sure what part of the bass you want to be small.
The knobs are small................
What you got against smelly plastic? Remember, a lot of folks like 'em.
They are indeed a very nice bass.
The MTD Kingston also weights but a pittance.
ibanez soundgears, any model.
I owned a 5 string fretted in light blue for a year. I wasn't my favorite bass but it was definately worth having. And the smelly plastic comment is because when I opened the case I could always smell the plastic body and it was quite repulsive to me. Nice basses though.
The absolute BEST sounding LIGHTEST 5 string I've played is an MTD 535 (Korina body, wenge neck with maple board), I'm going to be the proud owner of it soon!
I am a girl so you can imagine that I want to have a bass with a little body like the Thum bass of Warwick. And so as a smaller string spacing to.....
And I am thinking about a fretless ?
buy rockbass corvette freated or fretless i played both.
for this price is one of the hotest deals around.
lightweight with neck to die for.it have nice sound but if u turn treble to the end it have to much spank (freated).
this is only cons on this bass.
fretless have nice mvaaah when u playing and only cons is that it have no fret lines.this could be hard for beginers or maby not.
if u can get BASS PLAYER august 2002 u have rewiev of rockbass in it.it got 4.5 out of 5
Thanks, I will try to find some informations on the net
