  1. has anyone played one of these? they're pretty cheap and look interesting. i plan on playin one this weekend some time. i was thinking about dropping a basslines quarter pounder in there. do you think that would give me good punk/p-bass tone? or would the bass bring the pickup down a bit?


    thanks

    Pretty cool bass. Definitely has it's own vibe. I'd check it out thoroughly before dropping the Duncan in though. The stock pickup is part of the coolness factor. I didn't really hear anything I'd want to change, but then again, that's just me...

    I've never played one but Fat Mike from NOFX had one at warped a while back.. he said he had to use it because his back was hurting and they're really light. He didn't like the way it sounded though.

    Falsehood-i thought Fat MIke didn't play the Rumor Bass-i thought he played one with lipstick p/us in it [in the current bass player he does]. Back to the topic-the rumor bass looks like it has the makings of a nice bass. I haven't played one though. thats all

    edit: Just checked the Dano site-Fat Mike Uses a DC bass.

  6. If that's the one with the built in chorus and P-Bass pickup, it was horrible in my opinion.
