Hello Brubaker!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Jsonnenblick, May 18, 2001.


  1. I have a new Brubaker NBS 5-string coming today via UPS (see attached jpeg).

    I'll post a review later. For now, the specs:

    Body- Curly maple
    Top- Uniquely figured curly flame maple
    Neck- One piece quartersawn hard maple
    Fingerboard- hard maple(24 fret)
    Nut- Graph Tech
    Truss Rod- Single (two way adj.) stainless steel
    Bridge- Hipshot A style brass (adj. spacing .720-center to center) -black
    Tuners- Hipshot Ultralite- black
    Pickups- Bartolini- P25 Quadcoil -with selector switch to cut coils.
    Electronics- Bartolini NTMB ( blend, mid./push-pull/mid. boost, bass/treb., master vol./push-pull/passive mode.)
    Strings- DR Low Rider- gauge 45 65 85 105 125
    Color- Green to Indigo burst edge

    I'm excited about the mid-shift pot, active bypass, and coil-cut switch -- I love knobs & switches. . .

    I went over to Kevin's shop a few months back. He's making some very nice instruments.

    Congrats and hope it works out well.

    Wow. Nice bass man. All this talk about new basses on here is making me have serious gas. Well, maybe if Angus gives me a good review of those Roscoes at Bass NW, I will be trying to dig up some cash for one of them.

    Anyways, let us know what you think of it. If it plays as good as it looks, you should have yourself a winner.
