Bongo 6 Review?

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Kalyptic, Oct 3, 2010.

  1. I've tried using search function to find them, but maybe im just bad at it.

    Does anyone here have a Bongo 6 who can compare it to other 6's of similar or cheaper price range.
    I'm seriously thinking about getting one but im finding it hard to get feedback. Cheers doogles.

    Ooh, thanks for linking these reviews. This bass is relevant to my interests, but unfortunately not to my bank account.:bawl:
  3. Are there any places where i can see it compared to other 6strings?

    I loved mine, but finances forced a fairly quick sale unfortunately and I only ended up having it a few months :( It has that great Bongo preamp, so it sounds fantastic and is super flexible tone wise. Playability wise, the only other 6 I had any real time with was a Smith, and the Smith just completely owned it; not even a fair comparison. Like a new Caddy and a mid 60's Beetle.

    Not to say the Bongo wasn't playable, but it isn't as playable as a high end boutique bass. It plays like any other Bongo, which is fine but not truly spectacular. It is however a tone monster, so it is worth its price regardless (especially used).
