My daughter had to go to her friend's birthday party today at a place right across the street from the Guitar Trader. So what could I do? I left my wife and daughter at the fun center and bopped on over. Now, they didn't have anything that I couldn't live without, so I pulled an MIM Jazz Bass (4-string, of all things) off the wall and plugged it into a Bassman 250 2X10 combo. Now I don't know what this setup would cost, but it would be a lot less than a comparable Sadowsky/Eden rig. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. Lots of great tones at serviceable volume. The bass was well set up, and played nicely. Good slapping, popping tones and excellent fingerstyle tones. The amp was very versatile and could cover most genres. Bottom line, if you're looking for a decent rig that costs a lot less than the high end stuff, I'd recommend this one.
