    Has anyone had a chance to play one of the new Hamer Velocity basses?
    I am considering purchasing the model with the single humbucker. The materials used on it seem to be quite remarkable, but I don't have one available to try out to see how it sounds or plays.
    If anyone has had a chance to play one of these thing, your comments would be greatly appreciated, since I can't seem to find any reviews for this bass.

    well, one of the local bass players here in bremerton, WA plays a velocity II bass with the double J pups...bubinga body, maple/walnut neck, rosewood board. this guy smokes anyway, but he gets an incredible tone from his rig...he plays it through a 4x8 cab and a POD pro pre-.

    A local store has a single hum four that I spent about 15 minutes playing. Very nice, well built, kinda heavy, good tone.
