    Hi Guys

    Does anyone on these forums have one of these? Or even played one of these?

    I was at a friends house last night and we were talking about the band im in, he mentioned that he had a bass that had been stuffed under the bed for about 2 years. Anyway i got him to get it out so i could have a look. It seems quite a nice bass with bartolini pickups as standard, with a 'funk wah' envelope filter sounding flick switch built into the bass also as standard. I quite like my envelope filter stomp boxes and other various pedals. If the 'funk wah' switch does what it says on the tin, surely this is a GREAT idea?

    He no longer wants this bass and asked if i wanted it. He says that he got it a few years ago for about £500. It is in prestine condition. He has asked for £250 for it, does that sound like a good deal to you guys?

    Cheers

    Matt :D

    I haven't played the Funkmachine itself, but I do play Cort's, their quality is great, and a deal at full price.

    Cort also make a lot of other popular basses for biger companies, the Squier VM/DJAV's, the Fender Jazz 24, G&L Tribute, Lakland Skyline etc.
     
  5. I have played one. Like most Corts, it seemed very well put together. The controls do what they are supposed to; the tone controls, being active, have a quite wide range. The "Funk Wah" can be adjusted from two mini controls on the back and it really does perform as advertized. The one I tried was a neck through - I don't know if that applies to all of them, it also had the TM Stevens wacky paint job.

    If it has been under the bed for a while it will need new batteries. Try before you buy, but 250 Sovs seems like a fair price.

    The one you played was the Funkmachine I, the II is a different body wood, bolt on and not ot the wacky paint job.

    Yes, this one is black. I had a look at the adjustment controls for the funk wah on the back, there is a few little labelled holes (cant remember what they say exactly). Would you just poke something through the holes at the back to adjust the envelope filter?? :help:

    A mini screwdriver should work.
