  3. I dig. Hopefully it'll have a good B string and a non-pansy neck, unlike other Dean fivers.

    I think the B will be exceptional. This is Brian's own design.

    I wonder how Peavey feels about this?

    First Jeff Berlin and now Brian Bromberg. I think Dean is trying to make inroads in the bass market as Peavey's hand-me-down company.

    Hey, it seems to be working. I wonder how much of the Peavey B-Quad's electronics have been preserved on the Dean...

    Brian formally broke it off from Peavey about 3 years ago. He was building them himself for about 2 years, but decided to partner up with Dean last year.

    What's up with the sliders on the 4?


    Or am I a doof and that that's just figuring on the wood?

    I'm guessing that the sliders are piezo controls for either EQ, individual string volume, or individual string (left/right) panning...
     
  10. Are these basses out yet? What's the word on them, any good?
     
  11. Thanks for the links. I was hoping to find some reviews, but haven't come across them yet. The price seems pretty good (high for a Dean, but low for what it appears you get...) I might need to give a Dean a chance.

    It must be great bass as it has that "eugonomic" design as stated on the Dean website.:D

    Gosh, what life would be like to have a 1/4 of the talent that Mr. Bromberg possesses.;) He is such an under-recognized talent.

    Back the the thread, the Dean's haven't been all that bad for the price point considering the few examples I've come across. And considering that, as the ad reads, Brian has been included in the process...this would tend to lend some credibility to the project.

    Pretty ugly if you ask me. But then again, my opinion doesn't count...I like Bongos :)

    Sweet, I really like that design.
     
  16. The design is good. Unfortunately, the body is basswood....:rolleyes:

    My Dean Edge 5 has a fine B and an absolutely wonderful neck.
