I just bought a SR305DX

  1. I remember when I tried it out at first in the music store, I told my friend "dude I can probably get the same sounds from my SR405", (my first five string). I picked it up and already I could tell this bass was different it had one piece neck that was fast it felt very similar to my EDC705's neck, it was also very light. I plugged it into a Ampeg combo played around with the knobs, "this bass growls" it has a very cool growl on the low-mids. It has a short sustain due to the standard bridge but that's not at all a bad thing I love this basses sound on distortion and its light weight bridge helps it growl. I can dial up a decent sound with the bass/treble EQ and balance controls. I also loved the way this bass looked with the black finish and chrome hardware, it almost reminded me of an 67' Impala that was turned into a lowrider. I just shelled out the money today $409.95 I just spent the last hour playing it in my full setup damn this bass is deep.

    Congratulations, that's cool and all but... one question...

    Why? Why a Soundgear? Why god, why? :D
     
  3. I think his point is that the electronics in the 305 seem better than in a 405... weird.... cool though something to look for if buying an SR

    Soundgears rock and I'll have nothing bad said about them, even if I do have a passive '96 305:). They are lovely looking and sound great as well. BTW what is the B like on yours? Mine's pretty good but gets a little loose when I play it hard. What do you mean by one piece neck? A thru-neck or what?
