Dean Resonator Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by slappidypoppity, Oct 14, 2015.

  1. So, I've just ordered the Dean resonator Bass in black on Ebay:hyper:. I can't find anything about this bass other than the specs. There's no Youtube videos, no reviews, It's like they've never been played...Does anyone have any experience with these instruments in any way? $_35.jpg :bassist:

    No idea but I'd love to find out more about it myself.

    I tried one (Although I don't think it was a Dean)--it was kind of cool, but not something that would be my main bass.
    Which is something I'd take into account in terms of price.

    Hope it works out & when it arrives--enjoy!

    So, how did it turn out? How's the quality? Was just looking at one of these myself.

    Ya, like to know more about it myself as I'm looking for something like this.

    Anyone has more information?

    Looks pretty nifty.

    I can never find any information on basses that Dean makes, which as I feel like I've said over the last week, they really do make a very quality instrument for the price... And if you're curious, a lot of them seem to be coming out of Korea these days (who are doing phenominal work)

    I tried a few different resonator basses over the years. Never found anything about them I really liked or couldn't get just as easily out of a bass I already owned. Hybrid reso-guitars are another story. I especially like the Eastwood Airline Folkstar and will someday buy one for Floyd and the sort of stuff in the linked video.

    I tried a few resonator basses several years ago...they didn't stick.

    :bassist:I own one, is gorgeous and the sound is great, i´ve tried other acoustic basses but the sound was poor unplugged; this resobass is very comfy and sounds great unplugged, sounds well when your in an acoustic group, and is good for practice when you have family whom you could be annoying when you are plugged to an amp
