My Bass ... ??

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by keithconn, Dec 14, 2001.

  1. Heres my bass. What do you think? I know that it looks good(to me), plays good, and feels good. However I do not know much about what model it is, what the Carlo Robelli brand is all about, and what kind of wood it is exactly. I know that it has Mahogony stringers, with what looks like maple. But I am unsure about what the top is made of. It is rather heavy, but very well balanced.

    Keith - If it makes you happy, that's all that counts.

    Don't worry about what "the neighbors think."

    If you play for a living, like me, just worry about what makes your audience happy.
  3. Oh - I am not worried at all about what people 'think' ... I would like some info on it. I really know very little about it except that it is a brand sold by Sam Ash.

    And just thought I would post a picture. Kinda like having a kid I guess ... you just want to show everyone a picture. Not to mention I got this digital camera for a wedding present and hardly use it ..

  4. Nice Bass Keith! :)

    Like rick says;if it sounds good to you and gets you playing,hey!it`s a good bass.:D

    The members here are pretty unanimous in that mind set(not that I know everyone but...)so GET PRACTICING young man!:p :D

    hey, nice Warwick Ari.

    I don't know anything about the Carlo Robelli basses but I love laminated basses and the picture you posted shows a very cool "sandwich", it certainly looks good.

    Nice bass, Keith. I really like the design. If it suits you and it sounds good, nothing else matters.

    Those basses are VERY hit & miss. Either you get a nice one (rare) or you get a really crappy one. When I worked @ Sam Ash, I remember when we first started to get them in. Nice looking bass, played pretty nice & were reasonably price. The second shippment was a disaster!!!!! Rusetd screws, TOTALLY twisted necks. pre-amps not working (the ones that had pre-amps.) We literally threw out dozens of basses, guitars & acoustics. We's strip all the usable parts & smash the body & neck & throw it in the trash.

    If you got one of the rar, nice ones, you got a nice bass. But I'd keep my eye on the neck!!!!
