    Hello: I am thinking about purchasing a 12 string Musicvox Bass, and wanted to get some feedback. Anything I should know about?
    I have tried one out, and sounded pretty sweet.

    Looking forward to your input.

  2. I purchased a new Musicvox MI-6 20th Anniversary bass last week, but it hasn't arrived yet. I liked what I saw in the design specs and the answers Matt Eichen provided so I ordered the bass. Musicvox have a 100% satisfaction guarantee so if I'm not satisfied with the bass I'll return it and get my money back.

    I just meant I'd linked to a thread with the same video, a couple posts above yours. And the gentleman in the video (@TheMomoZone) has also posted in the same thread, if you have questions for him. He is amazing for sure! :)

    Oh, I see. I went to the page you linked, however, when I went to that link originally, it was broken.
    Appears fine now (!??!!)

    Thank you for that! =)

    You have any personal experiences with this bass?

    Nope, unfortunately never played one. The video was reposted by Mr. Momo later in the thread as you've seen, same YT link that you posted. I guess I wanted you to check out the whole thread, beside the relevance to your topic, because I liked its general vibe, very positive and snark-free for a change.

  18. I hope someone can post opinions

    A random search today on Alan Woody
    (RIP) brought up subject of 12 string Basses. ; strung in (4) courses of (3)
    E octave E octave E fundamental
    A //. //
    D //
    G//

    Watched YouTube videos
    12 string Basses sound amazing and full
    We mostly liked the Musicvox Space Cadet -12 ( looks like Woody played this model as well as other brands)

    •Neck thru design and “locking “ tuners

    Could easily fill in spaces in a live performance if needed.

    Pups sounded strong

    •Active/passive modes

    May be a niche bass but @ $1499
    Seemed more affordable than a lot of 4 string Basses.

    There are other brands and if anyone owns or has owned one I would be interested in all comments

    I am not it immediate market for purchase but definitely interested.

    Thanks in advance !
