Hello all. This weekend I had the opportunity to try out a couple of basslab basses, so I've decided to review what I saw. I stopped at GH Services which is located in the niagara falls area, on my way between Cleveland and Boston. The impetus for this has been after spending a lot of time on the basslab site, I saw a lot of excellent players doing amazing things. The problem is, I'm not excellent. I'm pretty good. I've been playing for 15 years or so. I can play a wide variety of styles, but hell, I'm not vic or jaco or billy or steve or <insert your favorite here>. So without further ado, here is a review of four basslab basses. Upon entering the establishment, I saw 4 basses on stands. My first reaction was !!!!!!. They look MUCH better in person than they do on the website. The first bass I picked up was a standard V in blue. I immediately set it down. Picked it up again. It has no mass! I thought maybe this was some toy version, not the real thing. It couldn't possible be lighter than my Parker Fly guitar could it? After the initial shock of being able to throw a 5 string bass around my shoulder without blinking, I started plucking some strings. Playability: 8 The composite feels excellent on the fingers. Very fast and light. The tone unplugged is very loud and full sounding, thanks to a hollow body design. I don't know how this fingerboard would feel on a fretless. The instrument is so light you can barely feel it, and balances perfectly in just about any position. After plucking, slapping, and basically tooling around while talking to Greg about the tech specs, I plugged it into an acoustic image clarus 2r, set flat. Tone: 10 There is not a single sound that cannot be had by this bass. From old P style to super funk slap to anything else you can think of. The EQ and pickups on this baby are beautiful sounding. All around the instrument, you get a nice tone, from the low B to the 24th fret on the G. I've never heard anything so even. I also played an L-bow as well as a soul 4 string. Both instruments had the same amazing tone qualities and playability. The bow has the upper horn attached to the headstock, while the soul is basically a J style. Anyway, that's all I can remember off the top of my head, feel free to ask any questions as it will probably trigger some memories. If you contact Greg , he is very helpful and was quite patient with me. He's also one hell of a bassist!
